Leave it the way it is. It is a classic design and paint scheme.

Pulled lots of bits and pieces and refinished and powdercoated. If anytihng I've spent close to $30k cleaning up a boat that desperately needed it to PRESERVE it's heritage. I haven't painted the stripe red....perhaps you missed that.
Wow sounds like Ted sold youa real Turd ..leave it silver...

Aesthetically, if you do the red, you're going to have to bring red in elsewhere. As an accent point, it looks natural in the "1" in the oval logo. Adding the stripe might work if you added red accents to your silver interior but then you have a confusing blend of non-complimentary colors. Black/white/silver works well. Ditch the silver and go red/white or all red on the interior and then the red stripe works.

Less is more.

Ted did the best with the limited services available to him in Cleveland....I was amazed at how few good boat services were available there....He used the boat and enjoyed it. I knew when I saw it that for it to meet my high level of attention to detail, I would have to spend some $$$ to get it there. That's fine, now I plan to use it and enjoy the hell out of it.

Why go up there? There's only retired people up there. Bring it on in Newport / Long Beach and hang out!
