    Default Trying to wrap my head around this

    Poking around on Craig's list this morning. Thought this was interesting if nothing else. Guy in Tucson is selling his boat. It has a custom paint job on it and he describes it as "Seven months ago I finished a complete high end custom paint job. The Red and flame paint job has a water spot pattern laid into it so those aren't flaws in the paint."

    Most of us spend countless hours trying to get rid of water spots, and this guy paints them into his boat so they're permanent and can't be gotten rid of.

    Not bashing the guy and he definitely thinks out of the box. I guess this way it could be spotted to hell and you couldn't tell. Just thought it was intersting.

    His water trap was probably full and he said "what the hell-time to spray clear!"
