    Is there a story behind it?

    I can see the profile of a lady just below the forward porthole so assuming it all means something.

    Goodness me! I have just finished painting my boat - all the same colour! That was hard enough, I can't imagine the work needed to do this one!

    It probably wasn't as difficult as it looks; many years ago I did a similar colour scheme on the tank/fairing of a motorbike just using brushes, the results were brilliant and by no stretch of the imagination am I a painter - with the smaller areas I didn't get the usual 'runs' and the black demarcation lines could be 'tweaked' to disguise dodgy bits.

    Hit the road often enough and eventually it will hit you back.

    Zoiks! No danger of losing your boat in the anchorage!

    i think that looks superb, much better than a boring white hull.

    Or getting away with the excuse that it wasn't my boat, must be one that looks like mine!

    Thumbs up

    He must be an Art Teacher .... or something similar etc ...... but! ... I do like what he's done with the windows ..... making an old yacht / design look quite modern ...... so it's a 'thumbs-up' (for the windows) from me!
