Default New boat graphics. Opinions wanted

As some of you know I have decided to jump on the band wagon and go the CC route for the next five years or so. Below are some of the first renditions I am working on with Chris at Grpahic EFX. I am going to try and post them in the order I prefer them so far. One thing that concerns me and that I am interested in your opinions is that somone who I have a great deal of respect for and is a pretty strong dealer advised me to not go with a "offshore boat" type of paint job. He feels it will make the boat harder to sell down the road. In reading Matts's article on the amount of boaters going from performance boats to CC's I feel that a flashy paint job won't hurt this boat on resale. The second owner of this boat will probably not be a fisherman but someone looking for a family or party type of boat. What do you guys think? Let me also say that in the first two pics I definately think that the striping needs more color. On the orange rendition I am leaning towards some blues and yellows, with the "Roadster" and "36" in a carbon fiber look. Thanks for your imput, and The ball busting that I'm sure is going to find its way from the Poker Run section here, (Adrenaline and Tantrum).

Definitely add some color to the stripes on the side of the boat.

Hopefully this will work for choice #2.

Here is my third choice. Not really crazy about these.
