Thumbs up Boat Graphics

Hi Rick252,

I co-own Raceline Digital. Thought I'd check out this site. Heard great things about it.

I'd be happy to help you out with some graphics! Check out our website and let me know what you are looking for.

Annette

Annette , I have added your Link to my site. Because this has been such an inquiring topic, I built a page for Paint & Graphics LINKs. It is located under my "Parts and Accessories" page @ www.SHARKEYMARINE.com

If anyone has other Graphics sites that I can use, please post them. Thanks!

I've seen you web site and love the work. I'm really leaning to going the vinyl route so it can be changed whenever I get tired of it.
Annette: I just sent a picture with e-mail, you have my palms all sweaty now waiting to see the results

Unhappy Playn

I was really sorry to have missed the rally, I missed everyone and those I was hoping to meet. Next year for sure.

Rick 252,

I have a couple of ideas for you, the keylines are drawn in my computer, just haven't had the time to finish them. I should have them for you on Monday.

Hughand Linda, Gelcoat blue is really pretty when new and for several years thereafter, is tougher than paint. Those are the 2 bigest advantages.

The disadvantage is that it is guaranteed to fade in several years, and then you're going to have the problem that started this thread and the "Boat Graphics" thread. You cannot get it to polish up for very long and it will not get the luster you had from the beginning, so you will eventually need to repaint.

Either way, the possibility of a repaint after several years, whether due to gel fade or paint damage, is probably inevitable.

The biggest advantage that I would say to painting from the beginning (and not just because I'm a painter) is that you have a much greater range of color and/or graphics possibilities, and you are limited only by your artist's capabilities (or lack thereof).
