I saw this cool transom graphic on the Moore Resto thread and was inspired to seek out other graphic masterpieces that have been applied to yachts over the years. A couple that spring to mind were the Vinyl brickwork transom on the Creekmore 22 'Linoleum', John Kolius's Worlds winning J24 Cheap Sunglasses with the mirrored lenses either side of the transom and the arms up each side of the boat.There are many masterpieces out there, some cool, some not but either way, show us what you got?

They had apparently purchased the boat sight unseen, and were in shock when they opened the container. They couldn't have been happier.

Heard something yesterday about a boat with a paint job on the hull and foulies with custom graphics on them which, when the crew hiked in their correct positions (ie: bowman at the front, tactician at the back back) the graphics on the foulies would match up with the graphics on the hull that the crew's legs were covering. 

 

Anyone have pictures?

I'm trying my best to find a fault in this statement, but I can't.

With the low cost of custom vinyl hull wraps, boats really have become the next coming of the 70's panel van! How long til skippers start offering free candy to random children?!?

It's amazing how huge amounts of money can fuck things up isn't it? Every form of racing from sailboats to Formula One was better before the big corporations got involved.

 

John Surtees was unbeatable on motorcycles in the 50's then built an F1 car at home in his two car garage and won the world championship. Now it takes around 1/2 $billion a year to be competitive and the racing was more entertaining back than.

 

Anybody here old enough to remember when 1/2 dozen reasonably wealthy guys (even some individuals) could mount a syndicate AC challenge? Now their entire fortunes couldn't pay for the advertising pages that they call sails.

 

The G.O.D.'s may not have been as fast but in this case they WERE better.

Here is a fairly recent image of the J125 RESOLUTE (ex-ROXANNE, ex-ERLEICHDA, ex-STILL CRAZY) at 2011 StFYC BBS. Still has the blue fade to white paint scheme she always has had.

That boat started as Marionette didn't it? Always thought that was a great name for a boat with so many strings to adjust.

 

Gawd those "conventional" middle years IOR boats were gorgeous. I recently sailed a Peterson Two Tonner from that era - pretty much a full race Serendipity clone. Ridiculous amount of hardware on deck and a stupidly complex hydraulic system the owner was removing piece by piece, but man of man did that thing fly in 10 knots. It had a tiller and I was astounded by how light it was on the helm - barely more pressure than my old Quarter Tonner.

 

Bring back the IOR. :D

 

P.S. If that was Marionette, her sister Big Apple had great graphics and colours - won the "Elegance" award at Cowes or somewhere big.

Sir John Surtees only F-1 championship came whle he was driving for scuderia ferrari in 1964.

He was the man to beat on motorcycles and had he not left ferrari he may have had another championship...

I stand corrected. He DID build his own GP car at home though and racing WAS a lot more interesting and entertaining then. :P

Left Hook, you have some pics on your facebook of racing on something with an awesome gold/yellow pain job, what is that thing?

Took me a minute to recall but then it hit me... Yes. XS is a Davidson 41 from the west coast of florida. Totally tricked out speed machine. Genoas, squaretop main, gybing bowsprit,  etc etc. Takes 14 crew just to barely hold it down going upwind and it goes scary fast downwind. 

 

The boat has a storied past. Was designed and built in 1995 and, apparently, started life with a symmetric kite. Various modifications since then include mast changes, conversion to A-sails, deeper keels, canting keels and lifting keels. 

 

Paint job was picked because the owner wanted to catch attention in his racing area and try to encourage other people to get involved with similar boats. It is school bus yellow with orange/gold striations running through the job and a giant green stylized XS painted on the front quarters, the tails of which stretch the length of the boat. Inlaid in the whole thing, are 2"x 2", semi translucent, sparkling white XS logos.

Don't know if this one was already posted, but nabbed this one from this very place a few years ago, in a thread similar to this one.

I don't have pictures, but there was a guy on our lake in the early 80s who had a wooden C-scow with the name on the transom in masking tape: "An-tiki"

 

Hard to beat that, especially since he was always at the top of a competitive fleet vs. fiberglass hulls.

and here's mine.  It came like that, it's alright I guess, makes it hard to change the name.  I do like how the finish line is a rum though..... I certainly wouldn't call it "the best" but it's certainly unique
