Thumbs up

I like it. I've never cared for most of the factory graphics packages that the production builders use. I think custom paint, done well, enhances the value and uniqueness of a boat.

I like the color combo but as mentioned I think if you shortened it the boat would still look like a 42.
Do you still have the gill exhaust for sale

I like it. Make sure you do the purple on the transom and swim platform to hide the exhaust soot.

What are you going to do with the deck? Give us a look. what about the cockpit? To much purple inside would take away. Besides dark colors on the hatch get to hot in the sun.
No number 1.

I could tell you how to make a boat look the best it can, we do it every day, I see graphics with hours of airbrushing and all kinds of creatures which do nothing for the boat except cost a small fortune. In fact the boat would look 10 times better if it had simple stripes on it................................

Ummm, not a big fan of the purple and orange, a bit "80's" if-you-will. I'm a big fan of Yellows& blues; red & orange etc... complimenatry colors. And I agree that it shortens the boat a bit... Maybe pull back some of the color under the front bolsters / cockpit and drag a bit of thin color out toward the bow. This will give the natural lines (& length) of the boat some flow.

Just my .02

Simple costom graphics I think make hot boats stand out in a croud. But I think you would want to match the cockpit colors as well carpet-bezels you know
go for it.

What you have makes the boat look a little "short" need to extend the graphics in some way down the side... even if it is a small stripe or something...

And ditch the "1" like you did...

Looks great except for that long thing attached to the bow.
