I'm kind of partial to Stars & Stripes Blue. Significantly easier to keep looking clean than flag blue, been there done that, never again. Don't know who told you it was hard to lay on but any "qualified" Awlgrip or Alexseal shop should be able to handle it with zero issues. I used Awlcraft 2000 but next time I may go Alexseal..

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.

Stars & Stripes Blue / Matterhorn White

-When I called Akzo Nobel and asked about the color code for s&s blue we spoke a little about laying down certain colors. I'd heard that s&s blue could hard to get right. They more-or-less confirmed saying that it and most of the grays were a tad more difficult than some of the other colors. -more sensative to temperature etc.

I've seen some stars and stripes blue that has a bit more gray in it than others and some that looks more sky blue.

by the way beautiful boat you have there.

----From the looks of things it may be a while before you get to "go Alexseal".

Hull Color

Hey SW... just replied to your post on the Alden message board site (see below)... I think we may have corresponded last year???

Hello, I'm the fortunate owner of Cythera (hull 992M). She was born Alden green, however the previous owner had her topsides refinished using a custom Awlgrip Deep Turquoise (H5332). I'm obviously partial, but I can assure you she catches everyone's eye where ever we sail. Good luck!

Great Looking Boat Barry.

I have painted her a bit more boring white but it came out very nice. I'll post some pics after I pull them off the camera.

"There are only two colors to paint a boat, black or white, and only a fool would paint a boat black." -Nathanael G. Herreshoff

Great designer, lousy eye for colour, IMO.

Blue and gold makes even cheap boats look good. And it makes old teak look great.
