Default teaching an old dog new tricks (graphics)

OK . . so i pull my boat in the shop last weekend and i was going to claen it up to finnaly throw it in the water and i accedentally grabbed my sander instead of my soapy water and sponge . now keep in mind this paint job took me about 4 days to complete, sanded and buffed, looks very good. i really was just gonna paint it white and put a wide black stripe down the side at the rubrail is but the more i looked at it in all white i just couldnt leave it alone . i just started tape'n and this is what i ended up with i think i even blacked out for a bit too. i kinda had to get in a zone to get this cranked out i really only had a few days to work with.

anyway my question to you guys (and gals ) is how do the new school graphics look on my old school ride. i always thought the windshield dated my boat and thought it would conflict with anything to wild so i tried to keep it on the milder side. i am considering a white fairing in the future.

I like the stripe along the water line in the "old photo"... Is that stripe made of the stuff that catches on fire that floats along the top of the Maumee?..............

Hey Dave,

Ride looks good. Mine is in at LP now, but I need to ask you about glass. I might sell the boat.

Long story about the boat. It LOOKS good... I'll tell you about it some time. Do you do tabbing? Plus, I have same rotation Cobras and the azz drops in the water bad. Counter rotating Alphas is what I'll do if I keep it, but I'm not happy enough with everything to keep it.

I was going to come out Saturday but I felt like crap. I don't know where they shot the fireworks off from, but my boat is TRASHED. Dirt, bird poop, ashes, scum, fireworks leftovers. Gonna have to clean it tomorrow.

I see how you are, my boat had new colors, so you had to have new colors.

Maybe you raised a bunch of dust and got my boat dirty. I want my money back. Wah.
smiley here.
