    Some painting ideas for the boat. Which will win??? The sail is red, white, and blue.

    BTW - Signal Charlie - can you paint EZPoxy on top of EZPoxy? Or do you need to put primer on top of EZPoxy, then EZPoxy on top of primer?

    0003 is the best IMHO; the others are too busy, and the red will fade.
    How about a simple broad stripe down the middle, or two narrow stripes? Blue or red.
    These designs have been used by Vanguard in the past and look nice on a white hull.

    You're welcome. Thanks for sharing the progress along the way, she looks great on the water.

    Did you name the boat?
