    Default LF Herreshoff DIDDIKAI

    If I had a dollar for every girl who found me unattractive, eventually they would find me attractive.

    Pretty boat!

    [rant] What is it with "blue tarp blue" canvas on boats? It can take a beautiful boat & make it look like any cheap 80's boat... [/rant]

    Maybe a Sunbrella overrun??? Yachties expressing solidarity with FEMA?

    Around here it's the sail cover default color, perhaps on the theory that while it does not really harmonize with any boat's color scheme, it clashes less than some attempts that get it just wrong.

    I've heard it said that of all the Sunbrella colors, the royal blue is the most UV resistant and color-fast. The dirt doesn't show up so much on it, either. Don't know how true that is, but so they say.

    OK - if true - a valid reason I 'spose. Still ugly...

    I'd wager 90% of the boats in the North East have blue for sail covers and dodger, etc.

    Really skimpy amount of information and pictures. I wonder how old the only picture provided actually is?
