It looks pretty nice in composition with the water. Not much of a big deal for color blind folks... actually not a big deal at all for many folks. For some it would be similar to flying their flag. For resale enticement... it would depend on the type of buyer who's looking. Gals might like it more [in general] than guys??


Different strokes for different folks!

Difficult to steal that boat.
Police or USCG call, "Be on the look out for a sports fisherman with a lavender hull."

I would do it in a heartbeat. I’m painting now. White is practical because I’m feathering it in. I would LOVE coral!

Those are often charter boats; “We went out on the pink boat and had a great day...”

Hmmm, there must be a reason why more boats are not painted lavender. (scratching my head)

To me, white hulls suggests the owners could not make up their minds. SMILE

If that was the boat that I wanted for the right price, I could ROCK that color! I couldn't care less what others think, and it would be easy to spot in an anchorage.

Cheers, Bill

They say you can paint your boat any color you want, as long as it is white.

Hmmmm, what's the estimate for painting your boat and how do you feel about a Peptobismol painted hull, turquoise bottom and a Florida blue boot top?

"Hello GoFundMe? We want to start a GoFundMe page for a poor, underprivileged boater who cant afford to paint his hull."

63' Hatteras, 18' beam, total repaint with color change should be around $80k to $100k, but I was saying that if you pay all the bills for my boating, THEN you will get to comment about the color of my boat. Simply offering to pay for a paint job is pocket change in the scheme of things and doesn't buy the right to complain to me about anything.

I think it looks cool. It must be a sportfisher thing. I don't think one can pull this off with a trawler.

I will have to agree. The design of the hull and the hull color seems to make it look speedy.

IMO you are correct, one shouldn't put that color on a trawler.
