What is it with tourquoise and orange? I have seen it in the Caribbean, the Maritimes, South Africa and India.

Many will know the score about me and my last boat, so this will openly be a matter of pride for me bordering on braggadocio. So be it. I loved the colors and paint of my own boat.

Still in tape, this one doesn't show all the contrasts of trim, but gets the hull color correct. This was my paint beginning to end. It rained just as I was finishing the first color coat and I thought I would cry.

Painting a yacht is so different than painting a work boat. You really want to use the colors and the paint differently.

We coordinated the interior colors to work with the outside of the boat to hold to a theme we had in mind.

There aren't a lot of pictures of me working on the boat because nobody takes a picture of you painting your boat, but by chance I have a few, not on photobucket or this computer, though.

I will need to dig out the "analog" photos one day. Plus, I look great in them:D

Could it be that it protects the wood hull from the splash?
I ask cuz my boat needed fastenings at the bow's point cuz of the splash, and I just wonder if painting there protects it a little more...???

Everything I know about color I learned from my wife, and I'm a lousy student, but I'm always happy to talk about that boat, painting and all of the stuff that I learned from it and my other projects.

Happy and privileged to oblige anytime.

Funny thing. The wedge is one way up in the 1st picture and the other way up in the 3rd.

It could be for visibility at night and an indicator as to which end is the bow.

It could be......an indicator as to which end is the bow.

It sorta needs it! In this perspective, there's an optical thing going on and if it weren't for the positioning of the mast and sail, it's almost possible to visualize it going the "other way."

At the wooden boat show 2012. But not sure if inlay and fancy molding counts as a paint job.

This one's for you, sean! All "my" kayaks were taken at the annual wooden boat show at CWB here in Seattle. We always considered the wood to be a "color" whenever we painted a boat, so I think it's definitely fair to use it (and any featured ornamentation) as an element in selecting and discussing color.

Here's a color scheme that caught my eye on the topsides of a boat at the Mystic show. Steven Bauer's daughter built (and painted) the boat of which this is a part. I liked the unbridled enthusiasm of the colors.

I still love this peapod. She was painted by the kids at Rocking the Boat in the Bronx. I took the photo at Mystic during the festival. I think it's brilliant to make your boat's name a sentence or longish phrase.

Beside being the bishop he is Abbot of St Benets and conducts a service at the abbey once a year.This is how he commutes.

Has anyone looked up International Boat Graffiti?

I ask cuz I saw a whole strand on boat art on an art forum...just can't download the pics here...but am fascinated by the colors on these hulls.

Someone with experience needs to step in & post the...not Austrian....perhaps Turkey or Greece graffiti on the hulls of boats.

Maybe even japanese or Korean or Vietnam graffiti...sorry...can't post here but I know others are able to...ISO help re same...

Sorry...frustrated divorcee...LOL

I painted this mallard with a woodburning iron and minwax stains directly on the cedar planking before sheathing with glass.

Thanks.

Actually, the runner was a gift from my mom. She hadn't seen her yet (mom was in VT, boat in ME) - but I'd showed her a pic. That Christmas, the runner was under the tree. A perfect fit for her!

Also - the engine is under there, so the runner adds a bit of sound insulation too.

May I hijack the thread a bit? It is a question about color scheme....

Neoga is currently Seattle Gray topsides, varnished teak cabin & caprail, Petit dark gray boot & Micron red on the bottom:

http://www.automatesoftware.com/assets/images/db_images/db_OnTrailerPortBeam.jpg

Since she has all new planks below the waterline, now would be the time to change the bottom color - should I choose to do so. I like the warmth of the red bottom with the other colors & want to stick with the Seattle Gray (a shade that looks white in some lights & pale gray in others - I'm a big fan) - but am wondering if a traditional green bottom might be an interesting combo.

I can't find a good color chip online - but I think you all know what I mean by traditional green bottom paint.

Thoughts? No guarantees I'll do what anyone says... :)

Lew Barrett
