The gel coat is holding varry nicely over all, And has no flaws in it at all from new from what I can see, I bought the boat late last year and it has 170 hours on it, And it has never been beached, But it has always sat out side so right now on the port and starboard sides the darker colors at the rear only are a little oxidized right now, But for being out side for 13 years in the sun it still looks really good, [LOL] when it's wet in the water it still looks brand new, The white color is still new looking and I just need to get off this computer long enough to do a varry light wet sanding and buff in the colors and it will be like brand new with varry little effert to it. And the inside was not as bad as you would think still being original and out side with just a normal boat cover on it. I will say chris jeff and shauna always has done a varry good job over all these years making varry nice clean boats inside and out, Also any one and every one that has owned a lavey craft should be varry proud of there boat, They really are nice over all with the rest of the hi dollar boats out there today By the way I just looked at your "out of the mold" thread down in laveys area. Varry nice 2750 love the color. And I hope lavey craft boats will make it thru the hard times every one is going thru right now as well with all the other boating manufacturer's out there to.

Mustafa: With what, sir?
Anton Ego: Perspective. Fresh out, I take it?
Mustafa: I am, uh...
Anton Ego: Very well. Since you're all out of perspective and no one else seems to have it in this BLOODY TOWN, I'll make you a deal. You provide the food, I'll provide the perspective, which would go nicely with a bottle of Cheval Blanc 1947.

I was thinking it could of been silver bleeding thru, if it was metallic? your answer sounds more likely
