I would not go so far as to add some chrome work, but YMMV.

The exterior paints the make for hypalon and PVC boats is also a good deal, easy to apply and visually well worth the effort.

Don't worry about the nay-sayers - your kids probably have more time and experience driving dinghy's that most sailors do. I'm lucky to get a donzen hours of dinghy driving in during a season.
Already got the paint!!!! It is a flourescent orange and green (Bob Marley style). To be honest, it is to keep someone from stealing the motor and dink though. However, I feel sorry for the person that does steal that motor or tender... they are in for a real dissapointment!!

Thanks Chuckles!!!
