To have anything painted black your prepping is going to be spot on or it will show like hell,
If thinking about a yellow or whites are good for hiding imperfections,

I think just plain gleaming white, always looks sophisticated and you have a blank canvas for any fancy patten decals you might want to add



Ok not the best of pattens, subtle but still stands out i think.

Well boyz,what about a retro Steve McQueen style Gulf colour scheme ?

You would have to have a bit of an artist in the spray shop though

yep i agree simple but stylish i would personally be drawn to that boat than a tacky over the top blur of colour. But thats just my opinion.
