When you build a custom boat as owner you get to choose everything, including the colors. Tim and Chris West got into it in a serious way as their York 32 neared completion. A month ago the starboard side looked like a checkerboard with vertical stripes of topside, boottop and bottom paint colors stretching from transom to amidships. Then when the decision was nearly made the idea came up- can’t we have a custom color for our bottom paint too? Nobody could think of a reason why not so the color you see here- sort of a muted aquamarine green- was chosen. I love it myself but this is a blog- let’s see some emotion out there in the blogosphere!
