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

My boat is going to need a new bottom job soon but during a refit I'm planning in a few years, I'm looking at changing the colors.

I found this Cape Dory that's up for sale and I really like the color. I'm looking at doing the same thing, Red topside with black bottom but the waterline, I'm thinking, to be bright yellow.

I'm also looking at refinishing the mast to a bright yellow too to match the waterline.

See current color in my blog in the signature below.

I like the red/black. The yellow boot stripe would be too much for me, but you should do what you like.

While I love the look of a painted mast, I will never paint mine. If scratched, it can encourage corrosion that would have never occurred bare. I also find they are the first to look like they need to be repainted. A yellow spar would certainly stand out, just not sure if that's good or not.

Heat from a dark color is generally not a problem here in the PNW:-))

I figure it would be good to get away from "standard" colors and do something different. But, if I get tired of any of it I can always go back to something more common. A yellow mast would help stand out in an anchorage. Again, just to do something different.

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

In the world of generic bleach bottle white plastic boats, some kind of distinguishing feature can indeed be helpful in crowded anchorages. (I'm reminded of an overindulging friend at Antigua race week, he asked the launch for a ride to his boat.. when asked 'which boat' he replied 'the white one'....)

We've seen the top few feet of a mast painted a contrasting colour - it's quite helpful. But unless you're at a Norsea 27 rendezvous I can't see you having any trouble picking out your boat!!

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

The best advise I have seen for finding your boat in the dark is SOLAS tape. You will not need much. Just remember the flashlight.

Hope you never need it for this but the SAR boys will thank you for a yellow mast.
