Default Help...suggestions With My Paint Job

Both sides will be the same, so disregaurd the third pic in both renderings. The pic with the tribals is what I'm going with. I'm torn between going purple or blues in place of it. I want to add more purple/blue under the green tribals and fade to the purple like in rendering 2. suggestions. Thanks.

There are a few pics from my favorite OL and Cig to show some of the colors I like, but everyone lately goes with blues so I thought purples might be a good change.

Tribal...here today, gone tomorrow...too trendy. A toned down version of #1 would be my choice.

Ive been looking at it this way for the last few days, just not me. The boat has nice lines that need to be addressed. I even thought about painting it like the Maroon/silver Cig at the Miami show, which is still in contention, the easy but safe way out

Jeff, I like #2 without the 43 on the hull side. Tribal is very West Coast...nothing wrong with it but just not what you expect to see on a Nor-Tech running in the bayou. But then again maybe that's why you want to go that route?! Whether you go blues or purples I would keep the shades dark.

I really like that Cig, it has a few shades of BLUE tribal by the fairing. I wish I had better shots of that boat. I kinda like that West coast, Southern Bayou Cajun feel, if ya know what I mean.

My personal opinion is that the whole tribal thing is like the pukey pale pastel colours of the late 80's, early 90's. It will date the boat within a few years and probably actually detract from resale pricing within 5 years. It seems the "over the top" graphics of today are the "fugly" graphics of tomorrow. I would love to see a big V done mono chromatic in a pearl blue or possible a front to rear fade using the same colour.
