Matterhorn white hull. Two tone white and contrasting non skid deck. Not sure but it might be buff, might be grey nonskid. Gold cove, dark blue and red double bootstripes.
Nothing elaborate just something subtle and classy.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Bob - a hard learned tip for the future. If your clients clutch their chests at your words, you need to develop a tad more subtlety.

That Sliver is a spectacular boat. Sure is nice to be rich - I couldn't even afford the dockage.

Do you have any pics of, or links to, the metal Norseman?

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

To me, whether I can afford it or not has absolutely nothing to do with it.

It's spectacular. That's enough.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Have buff with all deck canvas same color. Slightly different hues.Looks good and brings your eye to the lines of the boat. Also easiest color to look at when the sun is glaring. Don't like boats with too many colors. Detracts from the looks too busy. Don't like bright colors. Too hard live with and to maintain.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Out:
Given that this is a custom boat the owner will have say on the paint scheme. I have made my recommendations and the owner has gone along with my suggestions. I made general suggestions, i.e. "dark blue" now the owner and Mrs. Owner can pick the exact colors. Color choice is very personal. As my very first client told me many years ago, "It's not your boat Bob."
