Default What will we think of todays graphics 5 or 10 years from now?

After seeing the boats at SOTW last weekend I was thinking about how quickly graphics change styles. Its hard to think that we will be looking at boats painted recently at some time in the future and think "What the hell were we thinking", but it always happens. Seems pastels are out (thank God...see what I mean). Green and yellow making a comeback. Solid white always good in my book.

Thats the best thing about vinyl graphics. Get a solid white boat and put vinyl on it. When you get tired of the grapics or they look dated you can start over again.

I was thinking of boats like Extreme Exhibit. I think the graphics look great but I bet the age quickly.

Great subject. This weekend we saw two mid 80's Scarabs. One in solid white and the other in mid 80's blue/white disco graphics. The white one looked far better to us.
