Default I started painting my new 30ft Liberator cat

I started painting it last week. Finally got the first set of colors on it today. Next will go a lime green to bright green candy marble faded strip above the orange. Next will be two small black stripes above and below the marbled green. I have to do the sides first because the boat's too big to do the deck at the same time. Also, I work alone, so I only have a day or two to wetsand and buff before the clear is too hard. There will be a few more colors before it's done. I'll have to stand back and see what it needs. Here's some pics

How do you plan on rigging this new boat and what type of speed do you expect with those components?
Looks nice!

I'm putting outboards on this one. New 300XS's. I'm hoping for a little over 100. I have a set of 2003 300X's, but whoever buys it will most likely want new motors. It has the biggest cockpit I've ever seen on any big offshore boat. The cockpit from dash to rear seat is 9ft 4in, and 6' 11" wide. I also put a flat floor back where the I/O's would be. It's 4' 8" X 8' 3" and will have snap-in carpet. Kinda like a rear cabin. There's also a 7ft X 8ft front cabin with lounge pads. The whole interior will match the paint job too.

My buddy has the first one with twin i/o's. It has a large cockpit and hauls. I guess to big blower motors will allow you to do that.
