Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Bob, ever thought about buying one of those portable defibrillators to have along when you give the client the total bill? He looked like he was a little distressed HAHA. I am sure he was tickled pink, and is about to burst with anticipation on getting such a beautiful vessel into the water and under sail. Great work, once again.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

That boat should be dark blue or dark red, slightly greyish white superstructure with very pale grey non skid and canvas to match the hull colour.

There are no other options.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Gotta agree with you Bob.they have own it.especially with a custom boat it has express their dreams. Still, I'm old time and agree with old Nate . White or the wrong color.

Jon:
When we build one for you we will let you have any color you desire.
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.

Did you try out various combos with those incredible "photographic" computer renderings you have done?

I'm assuming that the colours can be changed with the press of a button (more or less) once the rendering is developed.

No, I don't need to.
I have been staring at sailing yachts now for 53 years. I think I know how to design a paint job without having to see it rendered. I have done this before.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I have a very good eye for colour - inherited from my artist mother - but I find that colours can surprise you. Maybe not so much with boats but certainly with cars and many other sculptural forms, different colours can strongly affect the visual perception of the shape.

A very good illustration of this effect is the current Corvette - done in silver it gets a fighter jet quality - all the planes and edges get sharpened and very defined. Done in black it gets a much more rounded quality, done in red it looks less distinctive - makes it more ordinary. Yellow makes it look bigger.

Oftentimes different colours can make a big difference in the apparent size of an object as well as the effective proportions of it.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

My moms a artist as well.Taught at h.s. and college level.dad did advertising ran a ad house. Not only does color effect perception of shape and size but also has major emotional impact. Sister ship came in two days ago for outfitting. Mine is white with black details ( bootstrap,cove line etc.) his is white and a baby blue. My interior is blond teak, off white corian marbled with earth tones and beige/tan micro suede . His is blue and blue tartan. Same crew is in and out of both boats outfitting. In my boat they converse. In his the volume goes up

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Can't say I have an eye for color but I have looked at a lot of boats and I know what colors work and why. I notice that almost all car adds on TV feature dark colored cars. I love dark hulls but I know they can be a PITA to maintain. The color scheme of my boats is seldom my call. I offer advice and let the owner do his thing, As Jon pointed out, today we will most probably have 3D renderings well before the boat is finished so colors can be explored ad nauseum.
