    Default capped it now what

    so i start preping the boat for paint and decide that rub rail has got to go.so the boat is now capped, and in primer and looking sweeet! just need some paint ideas. cant decide, eather split the two colors, ( hull white,top blue ) or flow the white up over the bow rails. I'm trying to avoid that rub rail line look. I'd like to see some pic's of your capped boats for ideas. thanks, steve.

    Looking Good!!! I'm getting ready to do the same thing to mine. I hate that little 1/2" aluminum molding, they call a rub rail.

    I ended up going a different route when i re-gel'd, but this gives an idea as to how my taping went....

    After the cap was sprayed, and before the dust storm!

    This is pretty much the end result.

    todd your boat looks awsome. the paint scheme looks sweet on that fork.I'm going to stay old school and keep it simple, i'm thinking white hull with baby blue trim. somthing similar to what I had, I'm glad I got rid of that rub rail,I like that clean smooth look. I'm still looking for suggestions though. maybe different side stripes, or any ideas would be great. thanks steve
