Hull color change...should I?

Post by Sea Skiff old dreams » Wed Apr 28, 2021 9:02 am

I recently purchased a 1962 18ft Sea Skiff - with a classic white hull. I'm thinking about repainting the hull in gloss black. Before I do, as a new Chris Craft owner, is changing the color of a classic boat a "no-no" from the perspective of more experienced Chris Craft owners? I welcome any comments about making this change. Thanks.

I don't think changing the color is bad but black attract heat and shows imperfections and dirt.
