Go for the color you want. The temps can be controlled by the fabric choice.


Thanks for the info mate. Good idea re: sun shield.

Yes! However... If you have your own ink and a printing press [as it seems our mate may have - lol] it is best to wear the mask until ink dries

Greetings,
Mr. H. "...get someone in to do it professionally." Sorry mate. I call BS. You could NEVER find anyone to perform that level of quality work.

By golly, it is looking like a boat, no longer a pile of parts.
I applaud your accomplishments and your skill.

OK - When I get time [soon] I'll think up a choice or three! Thanks, mate... for asking me to do so. I'm honored. Sure there will also be a flurry of choices from others who follow/love your boat-creation ""SAGA"!
