Here is another a green hull but we debate about a dark blue hull sometimes.

Jade green although its darkness/lightness depends on the sun and its absence.

Red reminds me of a lighthouse ship.

We've always loved blue hulled boats. We're currently in the process of painting our decks and pilothouse, but once done, we plan to haul out at a yard that will allow us to DIY paint (roll-and-tip) and do the topsides.

I recently asked my business partner if he could do a quick-and-dirty photoshop job and show what the finished product would be, and this is wht he came up with.

Before:


After:




We're actually serious though..

Here's the real after:

I like blue

White and grey to start, then white house, grey decks and blue hull. The admiral made me paint over the bow art...

The blue is harder to keep clean because of the bumpers, but it's two part epoxy so we'll see how it holds up. This paint job doesn't make her look fat (the boat, not the admiral).

The blue really pops. It looks great. I DID like the bow art!

WOW! Big improvement, and very nice looking boat. Just can't figure out why I like you darker hull so much. The boat looks much bigger than a 44, so yeah I guess it does make it look fat.:-)

There's a boat up in Main that could really benefit from a darker hull color.

Yes, here's one that could.

But the second one looks much better in a light color.

That's 'cause it's a Sabre. Can't make a Sabre look bad.

Healhustler, where are you when you're Photoshop skills are so obviously needed! My photo editing skills aren't up to the task.

Best I can do is FlyWright Breton Red.

Even then, my admiration of the quality of Maine built boats forces me to grudgingly admit that (white) Sabres don't look half bad.

David, you've been holding out on us. You didn't tell us about your new boat. I would have recognized your Breton Pink any where. WOW, and a 53' too. I'll bet Bentley Collins was happy when that order came in.

After all that. I hope you picked blue.
Why put effort into something you are not thrilled with?
