Being on a boat that's moving through the water, it's so clear. Everything falls into place in terms of what's important and what's not. James Taylor

MWNN has finished the topcoat on one side of the boat and is very disgruntled with the colour. When we chose the Craftmaster Coach Paint, I wanted Dark Green (Racing Green) as I was certain this was the colour our boat was painted with in 1999. MWNN thought it was too dark and, as Captain, overuled me. We bought what was called 'Classic Green', which is a classic narrowboat green. Strangely, the undercoat is dark green and MWNN says it looked great until he added the topcoat.

In future, MWNN and Hesadevil will set sail in a beautiful peagreen boat

Always trust your instincts with colour, I was talked out of a darker green for my bedroom walls and I've always regretted it.

I do. Problem is MWNN doesn't!

That looks fabulous.

It looks very shiny. I'm hoping it isn't quite as luminous green as the photo implies. Racing Green is so much more refined.

That'll teach him to listen to you in future.

He always admits his mistakes - until the nest time when he suffers from amnesia.

But it is a beautiful pea-green boat!

The boat is beautiful in its ugliness. It doesn't have the streamlined looks of a Gary Gorton build. Peagreen merely adds to the overall effect of the ugly duckling.

It's a perfectly good boat colour? I like it.

It is the original colour from 1994 when it was built. Unfortunately, this green fades to a pale Luminous Dong. Racing Green suits the shape much better. Note the go-faster coach stripes :D

Well ... we will certainly see you coming. Actually, Lyle's got a pair of socks the exact same colour. I'm sure it will grow on you. I quite like it. Your birthday painting has been started and, so far, it's looking good. Love to all. J

If it's the same green as the original colour of the boat (1994), it'll fade.

Iz excited about the painting. Mind you, don't know where I'm going to put it. MWNN has banned wall hangings in the freshly-painted rooms.
