the colour scheme is important cos if you make a mistake you are stuck with it.
Fender , you did not say what the colour was of the GRP cos if white then easy to replace the tube with a more suitable one. If one has the same colour GRP and tube no need to replace and it will sell.
we as a company favour Military Grey and somebody once said you can have any colour from Parker as long as it is Military Grey - just like Henry Ford once said about his cars - as long as it is black
There are many Parker Seasafari ribs in Military Grey some operating since 2005. The one in Grenada since 2007 .
if one wants the Wow factor the one cannot go wrong with RED, YELLOW, MILITARY GREY. the first two are prone to fade but if looked after they will have a long life span
here are some photos
I am sure some of you remember Nauti Bouy especially the famous crossing from Calais to Dover
the first photo was taken in 2007 or early 2008 when Richard started his operation.
the second photo was taken by me last year in Alderney. You can see that the tubes have faded and it is my guess not a lot of TLC. The colour of the GRP looks good.
the other yellow Parker 1000 Baltic with T-top is Waverider in the Canary Islands. year of built 2010 and as new had twin Mercury Verado 350 HP engines. Sold in December 2011. I have posted a photo as the rib is being shrink wrapped and you can see have the colour had been brought back. Today she still looks good and in the Canary Islands there is perhaps the same quantity of sun like in the Bahamas.
The all red Parker 1000 Baltic was built in 2012 and for the first two years operated from Southampton and had a full cover when stored on the hard. The photo was taken in June 2014. Today this rib is operating from St. David's South Wales and is known as Ocean Raven. The T-top was removed and sold to a forum member
