One thing with a solid color it will show a scum line more than one painted up.Like when ya take a white boat out of the water from being in dirty water

I like the colors, but they are easy to see on the sand bars.
I had mine on sand bars most the summer due to fuel costs.
Great lookin ride, bring it to wisconsin .I bet you I could have a paint job on it for you around 2010.

You're right Strip. It's funny how my girlfriend always makes it a point to 'fingerpoint' the nice boat with the scum line... I just shake my head. With all the money we spend on this high dollar hobby of ours, you'd think that more people would take pride in what they have and scrub that grime off. To each their own.

I have always been a fan of clean simple and timeless colors and graphics. Also, it makes for less tense moments when rafting and docking.

White stands out amongst a sea of colors.

I think doing the back half doesn't make much sense (based on that sketch anyway). An average person that saw the boat before and after would probably not even notice you changed anything.

Either leave it alone or do a drastic change.

I was thinking of doing the exact same thing as bripar77 did in his sketch. There have been a few Cigs and Skaters done with that design and it looks very, very nice. For a modest fee Chris Dilling will design something for you.

Default Skater Paint

Painting half the boat of course cost just less than 1/ 2of a whole new paint. That's the reason to consider just half the boat being painted.
VettelT193 your probably correct just trying to see if it's possible to save some money.
Thanks Runninhot.
One of my reasons for repainting the back half is to be able to walk on the back half of the boat during our hot summer monthes out here. A light blue is better than the Purple and green. I am getting quotes of around $ 40,000 to strip and repaint the whole boat with a somewhat mild color scheme and a little less than 1/2 of that to repaint the back half only.

Maybe all white with 2 colors would be cheaper. Anybody know of any West Coats Painters they could recomend??
