Could this be the new look Herbie?

You'll probably need to click on it to see it big enough, but here is what might be the final design, provided that someone doesn't change my mind! What do you think?

Tonight I sat down with a spreadsheet and my boat measurements and calculated how much paint I'm going to need. The sides are straightforward, its the front and rear doors and well deck and the inside walls of the rear semi trad deck that bump up the quantities. It looks like the paint alone (including primers, undercoats, three top coats etc) will cost over £500 so I hope it all works out! I'm going to need you all to keep your fingers crossed when the time comes.

Lovely colours but have to say from experience, having so many seperate panels on the boat splits the boat instead of it having a continuous line with one coach line all the way through. It does make the boat look longer with an unbroken coach line. I did try the same as you but regretted it afterwards.......

Stylish - that's the very word. So looking forward to seeing the new-look Herbie on the cut.

I like the proposed new look a lot! I need to catch up with all your posts Neil, but it will have to wait for another week or so. I'm chasing my own tail workwise at the moment.
