Somehow stumbled on this message list and didn't know it existed. The boat is painted with an industrial linear polyurethane, Valspar DIC, and the color was mixed off a color sheet and is D86. The photos are somewhat decieving in picking up the color. Guess you could call it teal though it's more a greyish blue and not as dark as it often shows in photos. The boat doesn't seem to be significantly warmer than when it was white before. Wouldn't go with a navy blue, black or dark green if you are going to be in tropical waters. If I was going to spend all that money to get the boat painted wasn't going to have it a blah white.
The Campbell prop is now working. The prop people suggested a higher numerically geared transmission if I wanted to get it to spin higher than 2800 rpm. Found a used 2.6-1 geared transmission to replace the 2.2-1 and all is now fine. Want to buy a low hours Kanzaki KM2 with 2.21 gearing for your Yanmar??
I Googled your name/boat and this popped up. I didn't trade info after the Constellation Cup but hope to keep in contact. If you're on Facebook the easiest way to find me is to search on "Ilana Dashevsky." I'm her spouse. Anyway we loved the race and the camaraderie of the crews on Pier 1.
