Clean is mean.. All those colors and designs just mask the lines of the boat.

Jeff,
I would personally keep it simple. Most people (including me) these days are getting tired of the "busy" or "elaborate" paint jobs. The paint you are considering looks nice, but will it appeal to someone else when you go to sell it? I would think about re-sale value someday.

Sometimes when I see a boat with a rediculous paintjob I wonder what the hell the owner was thinking when they had it painted??? (I'm not saying the paint you are considering is rediculous.)

Here is a classic example of a Cig with a simple, but classy paint job that looks awesome and will never go out of style.

Toned down #1 little less tribal, I love the green and purple combo, looks sweet.

Sorry. By #2 I meant the rendering, not the pic of the Cig.

Mentalpause and I were talking about this last time we were sipping sodas at the dock at LOTO. There are several older Fountains (early 90's?) around the lake down there that have the simple, colored, narrow bands running the length of the hull that accent the boat's lines. Even though the boats are approaching 15 years in age, they look just as good today as they did when new. This may not work on newer boats with more freeboard and taller hull sides but the concept is the same. Keep it simple and classy and it will not date itself.

#3 , but with replacing the green towards the rear with an orange. Add a few small streaks of green to the sides for accent.

I like green, especially when layered and it's the right shade of green. I will also be doing somethig with the scoops and sunpad. I do agree with the tribals being toned down somewhat. Maybe in between
something like the blue Cig on the cover of the August Power Boat Mag, and what is in pic 1.

Keep the responses coming, I apprieciate it. thanks Jeff

Jeff, the Cig in pic 2 is named Helios. Do a search, I'm sure there are more great shots of her.

Of course, I like the Maroon Cig style the best.....

Jeff,
If you are concerned about resale, I woudn,t go too crazy with the green. While it is a nice accent color, too much of it would be bad for resale (in my opinion)
As far as these monotone boats, while they are beautiful, I think that they are a little boring and something that you could get tired of fast.
