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?
I'd definitely screw something large and rectangular into its place.

lbdavis I was thinking of putting some sweet print of an old shoe up there. Catalinas are great and all, CD, but I'm not sure they're bulkhead material.

JimMcGee Funny you should ask. We've been looking though some old photos to decide what to print and frame for the boat. This one is going on the aft bulkhead next to the companionway and something from Key West will go on the other side:

We're thinking about this for the forward bulkhead above the table when it's folded up:

A 5x7 of this one is going on the v-berth bulkhead:

I'm still on the fence about whether I want to do plain black frames, mahogany or maybe cherry.

We've also got our mascot that we found in Costa Rica hanging around:

The previous owner had some nice intarsia sailboats on the bulkheads, but it's too much wood tone, and not enough color, so they'e going as part of our spring cleaning.
