If that boat was in my anchorage it would keep me up all night.

I guess sportfishers are like performance cars in that they can get away with crazy colors and look good too.

I don't mind it. It's different, it's got personality. I wouldn't want it for my own boat, but I'd be happy to have it moored nearby. Much in the same way that I'd never own a purple Dodge Charger, but I'd love it if my neighbor had one.

It's not just purple, it's Plum Crazy! At least that's what it was called on my '71 Challenger, back in the day.

I always thought the Union Castle ships had grey painted hulls. That’s how they looked to me and I saw plenty of them. Maybe I wasn’t looking closely enough?

Not for me but I think it would bring many hours of talk if it pulled in to our marina as all the colorful boats do when they come in

You all can have my share of that boat, living in south Florida I would be chased and hounded by people I don’t want to be caught by.
