Sharks teeth on hull, chavvy or not?

Scraping the barrel now for accessorising my SR4 with 'class', so would sharks teeth graphics be chavvy or not on the hull?

I've seen it on a SR5.4 and he couldn't sell it.....

How about 'hello mum' or 'I can see my house from here' written on the bottom for those wave jumping moments

I think you're already chavvy, so why worry about it?

Get a smaller barrel or don't dig so deep

I think teeth look kind of cool. There's a fishing boat over here with the same thing and it looks good.

Excellent. Flames on the tubes, a couple GRP whippy aerials and perhaps, a tiger skin seat cover.

I'm not into 'bling', I like everything to have a purpose, I am struggling to justify Shark teeth as they are bordering on chavvy and definitely have no useful purpose other than there are not too many SR4's about with them so easy to identify my boat, so looking on it as say security

I believe the young people prefer "no fear" or "saxo power" graphics, m'lud.

A girl round here has a pink Saxo with every possible accessory in pink. It has 'Babe' on almost every window. I stopped in Sainsburys car park as she was getting out and just said "that was a great film"...

I think tiger skin seat cover might be going too far on a centre console - but could certainly add something to a '70s porn seat' configuration...

Seeing as you have a love of all things orange and chavvy, why not have some graphics knocked up to turn it into a marine version of the General Lee? ;-)

openly pimping i have been told is out, but hidden pimping is back in. I am not completely sure what that means but I think it is something like. upgrading things that people can not see is cool i.e. car engines, but pimping the outside of the car that people can see if not cool.

on the other hand my nephew could just be taking the piss again.

Yeah ! with the air horns playing that tune they used to .... that would get you noticed .. although I am a little dissapointed you've not used any gaffa tape yet ... that will definately make you look like a 'poor mans' SR4 without some of that

That has so much stuff cluttering it up, there isn't any room for casualties! What on earth is happening at the stern, there appears to be miles of surplus cabling etc?

Looks quite pretty though.
