Chris Dilling of GrafikEFX and Dean Loucks of ArtofDesign collaborated on that one - the hurricane pictures are all airbrush. They spent 3-4 days on that part alone, swapping sides every few hours to make sure that they looked the same. Wow- patience and persistence.....
Retired! Boating full-time now.

id say it has to cost at least 30 grand to paint . this boat is listed for sale on here :
Category 5", Chief 1100 HP, on pump gas, dry sump #6 drives, custom open cockpit, 1/2 canopy conversion, built in head, Stellings w/ mufflers, 2 covers, hydrohoist, tandem dually trailer, ready to go, perfect!
but compared to some others out there,,
tomcat is going for a mere 1.3 million ,
category 5 is a deal !!
