Boat Art

My PO (or his PO) had something large and rectangular screwed into the bulkhead that left 4 screw holes and some nice discoloration on the teak laminate. I've since addressed all the leaks and corrected the discoloration as much as possible. Now I'd like to cover that eye sore up. (I already have a bookcase, it's right next to the eyesore.)

So, I'm curious what kind of "Art" people have hung in their boat? I thought about framing a picture of me and sticking it up there... Might keep the unwanteds away....

Pics please!

Q: What do you call a guy with no arms and no legs hanging on your bulkhead?

Saw a nice oil painting at one time that would have been great on a boat; It was a full rig ship tipping off the edge of the world with some its boats in the water trying to tow it away from that edge... The plaque on the frame had the old saw, "I told you so."
Wish I had the money at the time to buy that painting....

And in answer to your question about that guy!? Shark bait.
