Maverick and Tail say Hi

Hi Maverick and Tail here. We are new to the boating sceen but have big plans for the future. We currently are restoring an old 1975 Helsen 22. Not the greatest boat but it's all mine! Started by building a new trailer, the old one colapsed. I have striped of all the old teak and have started to refinish it. This stuff looks great when you take your time. The hull, and deck is very sound and I am currently wet sanding preparing it for new paint. A little help with color selection would be appreciated. I have been thinking forest green hull with light tan decks. I was going to redo the non-skid surfaces with a contrasting slightly darker tan. I have purchaced all new standing rigging as well as running rigging. Basicly now it is time to put it all together and go sailing. This little boat is to find out if my wife likes sailing as much as she thinks she will. If she does we will soon step up to around a 38. She just beat Breast Cancer (by the grace of God) and wants to start living life! Any help in the way of information would be appriciated.

Welcome to Sailnet... my wife is also a breast cancer survivor so I know all too well what you've been through and how you feel!

Forest green is a great colour for a hull, esp on more traditional 'teaky' boats. I think it sounds fine except I'd avoid going too dark with your nonskid colour. Darker colours can get too hot to walk on barefoot in the sun.

btw - great avatar!!
