do you have any colors in the interior/gauges and are you keeping the word on the side?

you could probably just do a color change of the side graphics and maybe add a little something, is there any stripes on the deck?

I would still keep the name and have a good artist not a painter put some graphics like a person head with the face being ripped off coming down the side,like from a storm or something.

Blue and white by far my favorite color combo. on a boat.
Do the swim platform the same color as those rails that
boarder your cockpit.
And some simple flowing graphics on the side maybe 2 shades
of blue one that matches the writing (thunder) then another
either a shade or 2 darker or a shade or 2 lighter.



Those rails are a cool color, nice boat
