So now if you were to paint the topsides it would'nt look like two different pieces. Would look like the topsides were made of one piece instead of two. I can hardly wait. You may be a traditional guy like BandB, PeterB or me and paint the sides white. Or you could be like some of the out of the box types and go for orange or purple.

Traditional... Me? ... Nah mate I'm coming from left field

This afternoon I epoxy glued in two of the 5 portholes and skim coated a section of the roof overhang and a little bit of sanding and filling.

The reason black hulls get shot more often is it's less easy to notice the hole or repair!

Not in Australia mate. Firearms are controlled to a large extent.

Matt me Matie!


Couple things about black... although it is in many instances a strikingly beautiful color:


- Solar rays love to heat up black. Sunny days in general, i.e. reflections off the water for the hull; flat out straight on rays for top sides. Boat's insides can get really HOT!
- Black cars are difficult to keep looking really clean - boats too. Black easily displays white salt streaks.
- When black goes dull for any reason in any portion that shows noticeably when sun reflects onto it.
- I imagine that black color is a hard color to spot by search planes... if ever necessary.
- Depending on the background... Black often makes things look smaller that lighter colors because it absorbs light.


IMHO - Although black is one of the most strikingly beautiful colors for a boat hull or sides of its superstructure that color's heat absorption on sunny days is just too much. For decks it's a flaming no, no.


Think carefully on color choices for SOLSTICE. Flic should be good counsel on that... you guys final boat appearance is one of the items that will make her very happy to have been part of the choice.


Happy Color Choice Daze! - Art


PS: Don likes everything that's hot! - LOL

Following Moonstruck's color of choice may be a mistake. While Don seems to get away with pink, methinks the blokes in Perth may see it as an opportunity to take the p*ss.

A friend told me last night if he wanted to be practical he'd sell the motor in his houseboat. Last time it started was 3 years ago when he hauled out, aside from that they never leave the mooring ball on the lake. 20 years of ownership and 26 weekends of use each year and the motor has 3 hours on it. On his third generator though.

One possible option Matt is vinyl wrap for boats. I've seen a few 'go fasts' that have been wrapped and they look amazing! Don't like the colour a few yrs from now easy 'nuff to change it.

http://vinylboatwrap.co.nz/vinyl-boat-wrap-faqs/

Might be worth looking into if you can find an installer in your area.
