We are painting our new to us Ocean Alexander, just bit the bullet. The hull is Stars and Stripes blue below the rub rail with a grey boot. The house will be painted the original color, an off white, don't know the exact color. Cay Marine in Miami is doing it, good people.

I like it. No white boot stripe - outside the box. Post some photos when done.

I am still thinking about it, leaning more towards painting the hull and bollocks white and the cabin a color , and a big strip at the top of the hull, splitting the eyesbrow with white and a color ,, maybe doing the hardtop in black...heading to the Seattle boat show this week end maybe Iíll get some new ideas, I am considering using a wrap on the cabin sides and getting some pricing on it, it will give the opportunity to remove if I donít like it or safer for resale

Only true to a certian extent.
Dark and light colors can have a significant effect on visual function.
Dark appears heavy. So you can give your boat better balance painting the hull dark and all above light.
You can draw attention to specific parts of the boat w color or/and lightness or darkness. A bright orange hull will not be missed. Think Coast Guard orange stripe. Masts can be painted black or white or medium grey to show up or not. Perhaps grey railings will tend to visually hide them. Good IMO. Long straight lines amplify length and emphasizing them makes the boat or cabin look longer.

Lots of ways to use color or it’s brightness/darkness to have the visual effect you want to achieve.

Agree with Eric. My research into "color psychology" as it pertains to potentially painting our vessel indicates that we need a darker hull, lighter superstructure.
That's because our boat can appear "top heavy" with the wrong color combination. Mattie, your boat is less likely to suffer from that particular illusion as you have the solid bulwarks up to the railing around the superstructure. But you're definitely on the right path.

Currently, our boat's paint scheme doesn't have two substantially different colors, but the saturation and hue levels are different enough that it makes the hull look smaller/shorter. If we could do it tomorrow, we'd paint the hull a flag blue, and we've already started painting the upper deck/flybridge the greyer or more taupe version of Grand Banks Beige, as opposed to the more pink/orange version we have now.
