Heck, if you did that in an hour and 15 minutes-I think you did a great job. I like the color too. I'm planning on doing the same thing to my Vee, but I don't think I'll be as fast as you!

Wow... that looks GREAT! I wouldn't trust myself to do it in 1.25 hours...

I liked that color so much, that's the color I chose for my boat (SeaRay called it "Pewter"), when I still had that boat, anyway.

Interesting, what color was it before? Black?

I am not sure how I feel about the color, but that kind of thing is subjective of course. It looks well done for sure though.
