If you paint the stack, you better do something nice for the engine, too!!

A bud bought a boat and put nice hardwood in for the cabin sole, and did that before he spent a dime on the engines. The engines felt ignored and treated him to four failures, one quite expensive.

So go change the oil or something before you do any bling. Engines get jealous, too.

Paint it silver or grey so it will be less noticeable. If you think it is one of the most attractive parts of your boat paint it white.
At least your stack is actually a stack and serves the expected function.

On second thought pick a really nice non-offensive color that you'll like as much next year and paint the whole boat. Two tone or three tone highly recommended.

If you go ahead with painting the stack consider painting the boot stripe the same color. My preference is for red...but yellow is distinctive too.

Xsbank--- Since your boat is Canadian and given the waters you cruise in, what about using the Union Steamship Company stack colors, red with a black top? Painting is the Caronea approaching the Goose Bay cannery.

That's a good idea, if I hold my hand over the hull, the fact my hull is not black isn't a detriment. I'll ask my friend the historian if those colours are sacrilege or? The top of the stack gets some black stuff on it so it's practical.

Ski, I've been spending all my time on the systems, they will understand!

No, I don't think there is any issue with using a red stack with a black top. It was actually a fairly popular paint scheme for passenger liners large and small back then.

Common to paint the very top of stacks black- Soot will turn them somewhat black anyway- why fight the black.

BC Forest Service traditional was a buff stack with black top.

Xs....if the boat was certified to carry passengers there will be a stability booklet in the pilot house.

How about white, with a blue top to match your existing bottom paint.

Tad, there was a lot of documentation missing, except for a pretty good library of manuals. It was a crew boat and did some fire-fighting so it carried a lot of personnel, but they didn't sell tickets so it may not have been CSI.
