JRDD -- which Seattle shop did you use? My boat is at Ballard and I may be considering this job on on it. Thanks.

my .02

We had a boat painted at Tortola Yacht Services in the 80's that came out well. Can't tell you what the current situation is however. If you are in the Virgins you might want to talk to Jeff Cook who works out of Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbor and get a recommendation from him. Also might want to check with Bill and Georgia who run a yacht management company out of Sopers Hole, West End, Tortola.

Red Color?

By the way, red a about the quickest fading color in the Caribbean sun. You might want to rethink that one. We had our boat painted "Bahama Blue" which is a light color.

I'd second the not-Red suggestion, but Royal Blue and Forest Green hulls really stand out nicely without quite the perfection of surface required for black. I suppose you need to decide if a dark colour in the tropics would, in fact, cause the boat to heat up more readily. I think if you keep the decks light it would be fine.

Zan...the heat with dark colors IS a real issue in the tropics. Something to consider even though a dark flag blue is really the prettiest color on a boat!! (g)

Actually, I've dealt with Geoff Cooke a lot (he helped me get a rudder replacement and did the installation work). The yard on Virgin Gorda doesn't have anyplace to really paint the boat outside of the wind; one main reason I don't want to get it done there. The recommendation I've gotten is for the company out in Nanny Cay (can't recall the name right now).
Finally - I was kidding about the red; but am leaning towards the darker blue. Owners in the BVI that I've talked to about the heat issue say it really isn't one for them; then again, they might have airconditioning running 24x7. I did have to do some re-gelcoating on an aircraft once because a square meter or so had been painted a dark color. Luckily, it wasn't on the airfoil but on the fuselage but it did take many, many hours of work to get rid of the painted and crazed section.
I will have a week stay in St. Maarten for other installations so perhaps might look there - but at the price ranges I've seen in this thread I think that I can safely wait another couple of years before the boat really needs a new covering and I'll just keep the charter boat camouflage coloration for the moment.

Just don't have a red UV cover on your furled genoa ... that's a dead giveaway!

You could try this color...

Very sharp and classic looking yet cooler than dark blue or green..

Slightly O/T, but does anyone do Imron anymore? Seems like all the shops locally just do Awlgrip.

Halekai...I've said it before...I really think that color looks beautiful on a nice boat like yours. What is it actually called?
