My Concept is a bright painted boat. i like it and I do get tons of compliments on it. However I wonder if I will get sick of the paint job in the next few years. I do know what I am going to get on my next boat!

bob=knob and it rhymes.....

The gentlemans offshore has always been so conservative and to them this a walk on the wild side. Maybe its the angle of the shot - taking too much in at once. Just the graphics on the sides is plenty. If I had to pick - I'd take the bottom one. Top one is dated. Take the a paint allowance and head to a hip shop. Ever notice how so many of these never have names/personalities. Off the windshields and get race fairings. Boats A+ Graphics C-.

That's why I didn't go for the premium paint from them, but I got what I think is "timeless".........sometimes less is more! My 2 cents!

Formula's just are too "widebodied" a "tall hullsided" for huge sq. footages of paint. I thought from the first that the "Flash" (top one) is absolutely disgusting.

Long lines like Nort's "silver" level paint in Daytona Beach (reds/blues) or even my "Formula Racing" Gold level graphic in Daytona Beach work better with the boats lines. Long stripes in traditional colors is timeless on a powerboat.

They need to learn "accent the positive" and leave the rest of the Imron in the can!
