Ya I did the boat I have right now in gray cause it was my first 2 part paint, paint job and heard the lighter color was more forgiving.. Now that I've done it and know what is what I want to go with the navy or green..

I like my green hull but i can see it will take a lot of waxing to keep it looking nice. Last boat was light blue and that one also faded over the years. My 35' Henriques Maine Coaster(hull #5) was white hull w/light blue roof and that was the easiest to keep clean.

I was interested in this 28BHM when i was boat shopping last year, bet the black hull will faded out quickly. This stick boat is in California if anybody is interested i think it is still for sale

Yup i did that was a long time ago. Does he still own it? I heard it was repowered with a Cat. If you could get some pictures of it i'd love to see how it looks now. I was only scared once on that boat winter codfishing blowing a gale out of the SW. It took 5000lbs of fish on deck to get the scuppers to touch the water, thats 125 boxes of bluefish on it in the picture. I had that boat built in 1976 its a great rig but i like my 29' H&H better(another tank):D.

I like mine
White top, gray sides, black bottom paint, red boot stripe.
Boot stripe was white when I got the boat, but the red really jumps out compared.

most boaters seem to use black bottom paint but I like to alternate between traditional red and green
