Default Anyone Done This...

Just wondering it anyone has painted the bottom of their lower units like a satin silver,if so any pics and how did it last...I'm thinking in the spring ordering a new sticker kit for both outdrives and painting the lowers silver.Also has anyone ever extended their v-berth???I have a 89 272 and the v-berth is about a foot short,I want to do some more overnighting this upcomming season but would like a little more room to sleep.....

pic for clicks...

pshannon,
very nice formula. have you thought about filler cushions between the seats? i find there is more room to sleep using the filler cushions than in the v-berth.

I built a 2 ft extension in our 312 V-berth just for what your talking about...worked great but finally decided the entire boat needed an extension and bought a 382. If I can find pics I'll post them.
BTW: I removed the porta-potti and added A/C while I was at it too!!!

Yes, we do a lot of our lower units in silver. We have done red, and even checkered flag and have had no problems.
