Favorite Sunfish Design

My current sunfish the 2007 Vanguard has the light blue stripe running all the way down it, and on both sides of it the paint is more of a grayish white tint,
That isn't paint, it's gel coat, as is the blue stripe and the white bottom. All Sunfish come from the factory in gel coated - no paint involved.

I am sure L and VW will point out wooden boats were painted, but there haven't been wood Sunfish in 50+ years so I left them out.
