Don't imagine for a second that a whole variety of paint schemes were not discussed. I make sure that a thorough approach is taken. In the end we felt a white boat would be the best way to go. No need to accentuate the low freeboard. It's low. Very low.
It should be polka dotted mixed with rainbow zebra stripes...or else probably paint it whatever color the guy who already had the heart attack for having to write the check wants it painted.
It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...
