Could you guys do it??

I came across this listing for a big 61' Viking with an umm, ahem, cough cough, LAVENDER paint job! I actually think it looks great but I don't think I could have a boat that color. I like the light blue and dark blues. I even like black. Not a huge fan of Fighting Lady yellow.

What about you guys?

Yeah, maybe in a tropical location with clear water and white sands, but certainly not here in the PNW.

Ugly as a can of crushed c*cks. And the colour sucks too.

If it was a choice that I paid for no but if priced right it wouldn't worry me as I rarely see the outside and I'm past caring what others think. I'm not buying it for them.

While I wouldn't choose the color, brightly colored sport fish are nothing new. To me, it's like owning a home that you light the exterior of every night. They're just looking for attention they other wise wouldn't get.

Greetings,
Mr. SoH. Meh. Don't really care one way or another unless the color is terribly garish. Most definitely not my style of boat or in my price range but it appears to be well maintained. Pastels of a variety of shades are fairly common here in FL. Also seeing an increase in dark metallics.

There's an older custom Carolina SF here in MHC that color, maybe one shade more intense. Takes some getting used to. I certainly wouldn't rule a boat out merely because of that color.

I will say, it is 'different.' In its favor, it is not turquoise, or FL blue or FL pink or black.
My questions are, is it owned by a lady or is it an
advertisement?
It is not my style.

Part of me thinks it looks good, and part of me is repulsed!
