    Default boat hull color on the inside?help!

    i need some help figureing out what to do with the inside of my boat.i did some experimenting with resin color, i dont like the yellow ,or blue. i don't want to use bedliner either.the yellow might look o.k if i go over it with paint for a shine?........anybody have any pics or any ideas for my hull? thanks, turbo wog. i was thinking blue & black carbon fiber but the inside i believe is too wavey to look good & i am not sure i want to deal with the extra labor.

    Sand it down and flow coat it. It will look good.

    I just re-did the bottom in my daughters boat and painted it. Take a look at this thread - New Project Cole Full Stringer here in the jet section for pictures.

    x1000 on the bedliner, never use that crap on a boat. Some dipwad screwed up a perfectly good SWTD by using bedliner on the deck.
