Hey Anti,

I honestly don't remember what kind of paint job the boat had. I just know that Captain Christie told me stay away from it, so we did. I always listen to my captain.

I have to say, even with GPS, big ol' navigation markers and knowledgeable locals on board, the "channels" and "shallows" of Barnegat Bay are tricky. The difference between the two is often just a few feet to port or starboard. Definitely keeps you on your toes.

And definitely the best driving experience of my boating life.
