Thinking of having my trawler painted like this

It would make finding her at a marina or anchorage very easy I think.....

My guess is that a boat like this could be a lightning rod for attracting aggressive Coasties looking to board in search of "contraband".

Any weed aboard, Captain?? hmm.

That is cool. If I ever sell my boat I am going to get one that I can paint with a broom and hose out the inside.

Um,
I think that person could use a refreshing, relaxing, and calming day on the water. He looks a little heavily burdened to me in more ways than one.

Woody, you'd be easy to spot on the river! But I like the color you chose.

I suggest that vessel be mounted with a 20mm recoilless cannon and sent to Somalia.* The pirates would be so slack jawed they would drift within range.

Tony, I heard that Alreds Marina in Guntersville hired their painter from an RV manufacturer.* He had been putting stripes and designs on them* It should be interesting when you get your boat back.

"Dazzle" paint jobs were common in WWI
