Awesome! Interesting divide between color and fouling paint too. Love the sharp point.

The decks are teak. As for the color, it is beautiful, but hard to keep. But it is pretty.

The link you posted is not a direct link to the photos you want us all to see, is more a sort of a google advertising of a service, instead of luring forum colleagues to
advertising sites you could post the photos which after all is what most forum colleagues do ( as opposed to being lazy and drag them to and advertising site)

I posted the link to a Google album that has nearly 60 pictures in it. The link I posted went directly into that album when I clicked on it. I am sorry if you are having problems with it.

I just clicked on the link again and went directly in to the album. I wanted to share these pictures and there are 58 of them that makes for a huge post on here. If anyone else is having this problem please let me know and I will gladly post them all, I just thought to link would be easier for everyone.

Talk about the decision process to draw the line between hull color and bottom anti fouling paint where you did - which is not where most boats make this divide.

Interesting concept. Love to hear the thought process.

Default Color divide

The pictures are on the forklift when we were putting her over the first time, and the bottom paint was low at that time. We floated her, filled her with gas and then marked where she floated. Hauled her back out and raised the mark 5'' forward and 3" aft and taped her off and set the waterline so far as the bottom paint. We then put a vinyl gold leaf boot top on her [ per the owner] and that was a mistake, as it looked hot but at speed she ran you could not keep it on her.

And as for that position, in alot of smaller boats they raise the bottom paint line forward, running with the chine, but we set the level on this one like you would a larger boat. I just think it looks better.

I think it's a great idea for a number of reasons. One is that to have a single color visible is a clean look. The second is that as more research comes out suggesting that lighter bottom paint colors help fishing success - and whether or not it's true people will believe it - it's good to know that you don't have to match your bottom paint and your hull paint.

Default I am sorry for that.

I have to go to the boat in a few and talk with my charter and see if we are going to try to go out. If we don't I will start posting the pictures and take down the link.

Beautiful boat. Looks light according to the waterline.
Is she 28' total length or is 28' the boat without the bracket?
I see the bottom was cold molded plywood and the sides juniper planked?
Did you plywood over the juniper?
I didn't see any ribs?

The link worked fine for me

Normally tough links screw me up, but I connect no problem. I hope you get it fixed so others can see this work of art.
