Re: Ready To Go Back In?

I like the "shark gray" anti-fouling paint. I put this on my boat as well, and it's great for indicating when the bottom needs a wipe down. It also looks very sporty, especially with my red stripes.

My Coronado 25 also had the cabin pushed out to the same width as the hull, so there were no side decks, same as your boat. Yes, it gave the Coronado more interior volume than many other boats of the same length, but Frank Butler (or whoever designed the interior) totally squandered that volume with a huge, fiberglass cabin liner and a terrible galley/dinnette layout. It was a real shame, and one reason why I sold the boat to get the Pearson 30.

Being on the cabin top really puts you "out there". I do appreciate my side decks now.
