IMO it is over done. I have seen the older Formulas updated like this many times and they never look right. Simple is better because the Hull itself has a lot going on with body lines, tucks, creases, etc. When the update is done it makes the boat look like an even older boat that has been attempted to be updated.

The best looking older formulas are simple. only a couple colors or one solid color. Take this for what it is worth

x2 - I hate to say it, but I agree. If anything, I would duplicate a more recent Formula design that is on the simpler side, fwiw.

I agree. You are going from a "timeless" theme to a dated theme. Then again.....it peels right off so no big deal. Have fun!

I like it. I gotta agree, the one without the skulls is nicer.

I like how the design integrates the swim platform.

Post some pics when the real thing is done.

I think the fat black stripe near the middle of the hull needs to be thinned also a little more silver to break up the red and black might make the boat look longer. I am working on these colors for my saber red/silver/black. with fades and thinner stripes to make the boat look longer slim.
