1st time...I bought this particular boat eight years ago from a friend who works at my marina, it needed a floor and paint. Replaced floor stringers and foam and painted it dark green. Sold it to a friend. He neglected it and it got very scratched when it hit mooring at low tide and mooring eye was never set and scratched side.
2nd time.. Bought it back from friend repainted same color repowered and sold it through a broker at my marina about 5 years ago.
3rd time I bought it from 1st guy again who bought it from one of his customers. Its the gift that keeps giving.
Looks awesome! Fighting lady yellow hull with green bottom and blue boot stripe. White tops and gray deck. Or blue bottom with green stripe. Just my opinion. All oyster white sounds easier to me! Looks great!
Interesting way you redid your transom. I left the outer skin and put new fiberglass on the inside. Looks good- creative way to recycle the old skin.
Color- I think seafoam green on the exterior (with a white boot stripe) and white interior for your boat.
Ive done several this way and had good results. You cant always reuse the glass from the outside. The pics dont show that after I laminated the skin I ground a 6 in seam where the cut was made and laid a layer of biax with mat on back and a layer of mat so the seam doesnt come back. If I did it from the inside I would have had to cut the floor. To me its easier to fair a large flat surface verses the inside. The last two times Ive owned this boat I painted it dark green awl grip. May change it up, but maybe the color is good luck.
I love flag blue too, that's what I painted my boat but... if all boats were white or blue it would make a pretty boring harbor. I like fighting lady yellow and even the crazy hot orange and green that Eastern has. See photo for an H&H with untraditional colors.
