John I like it. What about on the top deck change the color of the F4 to red to match the colors on the sunpad. When Mitcher paints it and highlights the silver/grey graphcs, have him use a heavier highlight on the bottom of the silver in black are a dark grey and a white on top of the graphic with fades to give it a more dimensional look. Can't wait buddy, boat has awesome line, you got a 10, and worth the wait. Jeff

I saw some line art at the Miami show and it will be a sweet boat. The only thing that looked odd was that size of boat having non skid on the deck. From some of the photos I have seen it looks like it is set in the mold. It has nice lines but might look odd having paint over non skid. I wonder if there is a way to have it sanded off before it goes to paint.

We talked about some of your ideas here. I think you will see some of that, more 3D look, outlined fades. It is just tough to get on the 2D version.

Non skid is in the mold. Won't get sanded out. But it will get painted over. they do that on their current models today.
