As you begin to cruise you will learn that folks being called by the boats name is quite common.

Its easier for folks to remember your boat than names .

We cruise south late in the season (central heat , auto pilot) and in the AM I use a ski doo warm suit coverall to get up the anchors.
Huge zippers mean it can be temp modulated much of the day.

I remember one time the bride drug my suit out of the marina laundry dryer . and the lady at the next machine ."oh your'e Sea Gypsy".

Just the way it is .

Last winter i helped my best friend head south Dec27th it was snowing here ! And i was wearing FrogToggs over my dry suit. Keeping me dry and warm. After about 5 days of being wet. I felt it needed to dry " i know about other things not laundry" i thought what would 4 mins in the dryer hurt. As a pulled the suit out a guy beside me started laughing it was now size 4-T would fit my grandson that was about 3 months old, Then i slowly checked the tag " Never machine DRY" oops ! The Honeybadger now reads tags before drying !

Welcome aboard Honey Badger! Looks like you've got a fun project there. What kind of engine do you have?

Hopcar it is a 4-154 Perkins , It was a dry stack but i have changed it over to wet set but the engine is fresh water cooled with a keep cooler so i have a diverter valve to adjust the amount of water into the muffler , the pump is 1 inch Jabsco and was told at 2000 rpm it pumps 28 gallons a min, On my dads diesels he would divert part of the water out the side of the boat to relive back preasure on the engine not sure what is a good number to push out or keep ?

Ok i am preping the topside and the upper hull for paint, Color seems to be the problem i am keeping the wheel house White with one accent stripe down the side. What color should the hull be, Navy blue with red accents, Red with Navy accents, Green with some Gold/Yellow accents,Sea Foam Green with white accents, Toss out any ideas guys i am needing input, i want the traditional trawler/tug look but classy.

honeybadger,
I like your boat a lot and I think it's not over powered and the engine matches it's 10 knot hull very well.

The gray hull is actually rather nice I think. Might want to go to a bt darker gray though.

Green hull could look nice, too. Darker green, not a wishy-washy pastel green.

Black hull would be very workboat-looking which could have character appeal, but I think with that very tall cabin a dark hull of any color would make the boat look awfully top heavy.

So I'd vote far a nice gray with black bottom paint and a red bootstripe.

Healhustler of this forum is very accomplished with Photoshop and you may know good graphics guys yourself. Perhaps they can do some color changes on your photos to show you what some combinations would look like.
