This reminds me of a famous musical tidbit.

When Mr. X was complimented by someone about how good his instrument sounded that night, Mr. X placed it on the floor and asked "how does it sound now?"

 

I've heard, via interweb stories,  this Mr X as being Chet Atkins, Les Paul, Yo Yo Ma, Pablo Casals, Wes Montgomery, etc. etc.

Not a boat ad, but, there's something about this one that makes me wonder what they're doing...

Looks like they put graphics on sails.  If you're into that sort of thing.

Lin told us that Taleisin is not a boat, she's an adventure machine. ......

 

I like this.  Next time I sell a boat I'll be sure to pull the motor, remove the head, and market it as "an adventure machine". Just have to find the greenhorn sailors to buy it.

Thanks for the idea.

Ra Ra: no irony/sarcasm intended! Brilliant to read people who actually know this stuff first hand. You won't believe it, but there are some people on the internet who are happy to talk about things they know nothing of....

 

As you say, top masking job. Just sail the ship through the paint. But what were they actually doing? It's not (I hope) just for paint. 

 

termites?

 

Meth Lab?

I'm kind of keen on the windows. They're not traditional, but look good on that boat.

 

The female rendering could use some tweaks in scale.
