Donrr1—

One other thing to consider is how visible your boat is, especially at night. If your nav lights fail for some reason—not an uncommon scenario by any means— how easily visible is your boat going to be at night or in the fog? A dark hulled boat can often blend into the night without running lights. Also, if you ever need rescue, a dark blue hulled boat is probably as difficult to spot as anything else is.

Very good point SD and the one that tips the scales. Emrond eh CD? Was that price you quoted for materials and labor or just material? My partner wants some kind of light blue (fag) color. Guess that clears it up why I'm torn

I love being on an Even Keel WTF are YOU lookin at?????

Don,

Fag color??? HAHAH!! You could also go with the rainbow colored hull and save on slip-rent in Key West!!! Of course, there will be some visitors coming aboard in the middle of the night...

That price was for a turn-key job. The time and energy is not in shooting the paint. Any yahoo with a spray rig can do that. It is all the prep work. And I have been told Emrond is a bit quirky to deal with. Cannot say it is tru or false. That is one of the things I have the experts do!!

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Actually, I do have a spray rig!!! I could shoot it. But, I also know that, with my expert painting skills, I would be painting the rest of the boats in the harbor!! Nah, I know you "can" do it yourself, better to "not" do it yourself.

Just my opinion!!

Oh, I completely agree, that there are certain things that are best left to the experts... or at least best not to be done personally, even if the guys doing it aren't experts... Cleaning out a septic system is at the top of my list.

Well, I have spent 9 mo in the Caribbean in an Allied Mistress 39 with a dark blue hull. I was never bothered by excess heat because of the color. The point is that tropics=trade winds (until you get into the ITCZ) and the breeze keeps things okay.

I guarantee you would do a better job than the tradie, because once he's done the job are you going to stick your nose or hand in and check his work, I THINK NOT.

When you can, and do a job yourself you will always go that little bit further for a better or stronger result it might take you longer but hey you did it.
