Gorgeous! I think we'll have to hold the next meeting of the Board of Advisers on StarGazer.

Ok, just to prove there ARE colourfull GRP boats out there, check out the launch colours of the new Beneteau First 30;



And if you like nice bright interiors, they havent dissapointed inside either. Bear in mind, this is only a 30ft boat, looks very spacious;


So, is pink the new blue?

MTV's "Pimp My Boat" comes to mind...

You'd end up with a boat that had a big picnic table spoiler hanging off the bow, black tinted windows all around, the wind genny mounted inside of a 22inch spinner wheel, a 10 inch diameter exhaust stack making a lot of noise, neon waterline, and a stereo system which makes the water vibrate as you pass other boats. And let's not forget the pair of fuzzy dice hanging in the companionway.

It's said that if you can remember the '70s, you weren't there

Anyway, that cat probably looked super cool man on acid

Disagree. Most boats I have been on were wood / and some color/s inside.

And our topsides are black, waterline red, bottom paint light blue, dodger yellow.

I think it was Ford, model T ...

Our boat has always been bright yellow - fades a bit but very convenient: "What boat are you on?" "The yellow one."
