    one last kick of the dead horse (gel scheme)

    I am so close I can taste it! In my other gel coat thread you guys helped me hammer down a gel scheme, along with some plagiarism on my part, that ended with two options After my family, my local boating homies and the votes from the previous thread it appears option 2 has won rather decidedly...

    Gel Coat design round 2, ran out of crayons

    I have drawn this thing so many times I ran out of my fancy colored pencils so my kid showed me how to muttle through "paint", which ended up being quite entertaining.

    I was just looking at river homes around Parker. As I was looking at all the pics of various houses I started to notice there doesn't seem to be many boats tied up either alongside or at the docks of a bunch of these? Just curious.

    Mercury Racing engine color options

    I can't seem to find the engine color chart for the optional engine paint. In fact I can't find any current reference to this being an option any more on the 520 or 540. I found some reference to the 565 and 600s Who is in the know, can I order a 540 in optional colors?
