That's a lot nicer color than what we have, Peter. I'd take that over the Pacific Blue anytime. A lot of the newer GBs in our marina have an even darker blue, almost black, that we like a lot. And actually black looks good, too, although it certainly highlights bird poo.
Probably our favorite is the deep green that a few GBs in our area have. It looks great with the white boat and teak trim. Most of these boats have green bootstripes, too, over blue bottom paint which looks real nice with the green canvas.
Our boat's bottom and bootstripe are what the factory used on our generation of GBs--- black bottom paint and a red bootstripe. Like the Navy used/uses on its launches and other small boats. Don't know how the Fire Red (that's the name of the color) would look with the green.
Anyway we'll live with the Pacific Blue until we have to replace it. If we end up turning the boat over to a yard with "make it new and call us when its ready" instructions we'll certainly change out all the canvas along with the engines and everything else. But that's a decision yet to be made.
