Would you buy a boat with engines like this?

I just finished painting and doing a bunch of other much-needed crap to the old girls. They are needy!
The temptation was too great to just buy 'ford red' every time I needed a new can of paint. So, they came out a little wild.
Whaddya think; yay, or nay??

I think I would have to get use to it but it just might grow on me

Did you spray or brush?

Colorful for sure. Is that a normal water addition location at the exhaust elbow?

I believe so; the elbow was definitely manufactured with that inlet right there. Where does it usually go in?

I figured I'd get mixed reviews.
For those who want to copy (I'm sure there'll be many).
I brushed POR-15 rust preventative coating in silver over everything, then did the base color for the main engine with brushed POR-15 ford red. It brushes on ridiculously thick, but man does it get glossy. Everything else was sprayed with Dupli-color 'torquin teal', 'ford dark blue', 'aluminum' and 'old ford blue' VHT. I had a can of shiny gold rustoleum I finished off on some parts too for accent.

Funny I was asking myself the same! Not an expert but shouldn't the water injected on the exhaust descending side?

Looks fine to me - mine enters about same place on my Lehman 120. it's going to be blasted out wherever it enters anyway.

Looks great.
I am debating to spray or brush. I like the brush idea as you can do a little bit at a time, when you’re in the mood.

Hi,

A cool idea but white / yellow engines are the best colors to see the starting problem, glygol, raw water, oil or other leakage, and so on.

If the rest of the boat was OK, the engines were OK and the price was adjusted down accordingly , yes.
