Yes.

Now take the rest of the rails off, that FB (or make the face of it vertical) The bow pulpit and all that stick stuff sticking up and you'd have a very good looking boat.

And for those that just can't do w/o rails just paint them black.

Like this? I'm not good enough to make the rails black and it would take a while to delete them...

That rail-less boat scares me. I want to feel/be secure when I'm out on the deck.

Nice work, Cardude. Keep up the practice. Working with what you've already done, I moved the Pilothouse windshield a bit farther forward and put another window next to the helm, following your suggestion that the house may be too short. I'm not sure about that fly-bridge, but here it is stretched the same amount as the house below and with a restyled skirt. As Tad suggests, a window change would probably help a lot.

My feeble attempt of giving Eric his black forward rails without flybridge.

Looks like it was not such a good idea.

The cabin looks way too small for the boat.

And how would the guy see where he was going?

Mark's boat could use a cleanup too. But it's so perfect otherwise ......

Agree with you about the rails and flybridge removal. I like the flybridge on this boat.

As one who has stood at the helm of Marks boat I can vouch for its fantastic sight lines. Far superior to the sight lines on my boat.

Here's an example of what Tad is speaking about, just to show the effect of window order size and shape. Windows are reworked, radius corners, and the terrible aft. cabin ports are cleaned up also. I added the more subtle grey accents after seeing the effects on a Willard 40, purely personal preference. It may not be viewed as "better", but it sure is different.

Great feeble attempt, by the way, Craig.

Now we're talking. About time the professional photoshop guy showed up !!

That looks really good. What about different paint schemes ?? Navy blue?

And I finally noticed you cleaned up the railings and changed the color scheme to gray.

Flybridge looks great also IMO with the sides extended. I actually have a boat building buddy who can do that kind of thing.

The rounded and larger windows make a huge difference, but how hard would that be to do in the real world ?

Taking a look at the work cardude and Craig (CPsuedonym) demonstrated in the examples above, the effects of the changes are evident, and make the point perfectly. If you're really getting into the detail, maybe Photoshop is the way to go, but I love to see the visual interchange of ideas this way. If we don't have an eye along with an idea, Photoshop won't save us.

Looks good Larry.

I think the excessive railings and the scruffy looking FB w it's face that dosn't match the front end of the wheelhouse did most of the re-style.

Actually if you look closely at the railings amidships you can see that the railings are actually stanchions and life lines like on Willy.

Good looking boat. It's a good thing I don't have two foot idus (sp?)
