my Sunrunner hull is dark red and is impossible to keep shining all summer, deck is white and lasts much longer

I guess we fall somewhere in the middle on this one... Superstructure is Grand Banks Beige, and the hull is (IIRC) Hatteras Off White. PO painted the colors, and it shows with an "amateurish" finish. I would, however, love to re-paint the hull dark green or blue and keep the topsides beige.

Not so Craig.

A PO removed the FB (thankfully) and my Mitsu isn't different as all the Westerbeke's and Vetus's are the same engine exactly.

But the Klassen marineazation is a bit different I admit.

How does one spell marineazation .... ???

Nice try though Craig.

Eric, lacking both a flying bridge and a second engine, you're definitely in the minority, and thus different from the majority.

The observant will notice a golden/yellow silhouette of a bear on the blue stack in both paint versions.
