What a difference compared to the "running shoe" in the berth to starboard.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: Black or off coloured Yachts? Opinions......,

As Bill Garden put it - "a fleet of white, plastic, triangular me-too's".

Exclusively white boats look too much like the nearly exclusively silver/grey/white that cars have become.

Borrrrriiinnng.

I'll take coloured hulls most times thanks.

Re: Black or off coloured Yachts? Opinions......,

As a traditionalist.. I would love to paint my (soon to be) boat black with white bottom paint and tan topsides.. I have also found that Yellow is quite striking looking too if done right
