BallOfSpray Centurion #3

Is this too subdued? It is silver metal flake. I think it will freak'n glow in the sunlight.

How about this?

    Did you sell the blue one already? That color combo was sweet.

    For resale, I'm not sure metal flake is the best choice? Maybe too bass boat-like for a ski boat? Of course it depends on the amount of flake for me. Clemson Dave's last 200 had a subtle amount of charcoal colored flake, and it accented it perfectly. The amount on this Carbon might be over the top? Naturally, color is all opinion, but resale history can be on your side with certain colors.

    @swc5150 a little metal flake is awesome. Too much is too much. My first two Centurions were blue flake and look awesome. It is just time for a change.

    Go all orange with black stripes and a 409. Orange is beautiful on the water.

    @supersonicus that is just not my style but if you want a Centurion with those colors => I will order it as long as you take it off my hands at the end of the season. That is a great way to save money and get the exact boat you want.

    @horton Not this season for me, but I'm a believer in promo programs. Best way to get a fair price on a properly dialed in piece.

    I like the second one slightly better.

    Several of us were recently debating metal flake versus old school colors. Most people decided that younger owners prefer the metal flake and older owners prefer the traditional "flat" colors. Another example might be the two decal options for the CC 200 - e.g. do you prefer the old school look or the gradient graphics? Personally I prefer some flash and style for my boats (I'm 49).

    @Than_Bogan I think the first one will look boring in the shade and when the sun hits it BOOM!

    I like the light grey. Black burns, literally. Down on the gulf coast I see all these idiots getting black powder coated leaning posts on their center console fishing boats. You absolutely cannot touch them when the sun's out.
    They both look great, I just try to stick to the lighter colors.

    The silver looks great in the sun. Nor Cal promo Centurion had the metal flake grey center stripe last year and it looked great.

    Second one, bit more contrast.
  • 6balls6balls Posts: 5,477 Mega Baller
    @shaneH love it. @horton the second one black hull. Bro Jim had a MC like that and the black hull makes it disappear and the boat looks artificially low to the water which is really cool.

    I would go with the first one although if it was for my lake I would buy the second one. The black hides the stain from our lake.

    First one for sure. No contest.
  • swc5150swc5150 Posts: 2,433 ★★★Triple Panda Award Recipient ★★★
    I think silver top stripe, black bottom stripe might look great. Like Dave said, the black disappearing into the water would make it look baddass. Silver top stripe, with the rest white might look awesome too?

    Second one for me. However I like a little more bold to make it pop but these two are pretty sweet looking.
  • DmaxJC_skiDmaxJC_ski Posts: 346 Solid Baller
    I think the first one, lighter colors = easier to keep clean. But really either would be badass.

    You can't lose on either of those and the flake will look kickass on it. If I had to choose I'd go with the first

    My question with metal flake is once it fades how hard is it to clean up?
    Stir vigorously then leave!

    There you go. That white/silver is sweet!

    Silver and White is SEXY! Won't look super great on the trailer or in the garage but on the water it will sparkle like a diamond.

    I thought I was going to really like the silver with black but I have to say silver and white looks very sharp. I was a fan of the original carbon fiber sides but I don't think that is an option any more. John have you asked or considered a different color Centurion emblem on side? Brushed Gunmetal or Canadian blue would look really cool and totally 'Pop'
