Boat Refinishing and Custom Graphics

Here is another example of Boat Refinishing and Custom Graphics addiction of John Russo owner of Palm Beach Customs. It started out that my daughter and I were going to purchase this boat, clean it and just use it as is. The funny thing is, as I am writing this post anyone who knows me realizes that is just not possible. It did start out that way and the cleaning turned into removing all the carpets and interior then we faced the fact that it was going to be a canidate for a paint job .

     Boat Refinishing and Custom Graphics 

Well, as you can see it wasn’t just the average paint job. I decided to use House Of Kolor Spanish Gold Kandy and Pearl White as the main base colors and wanted asymmetrical graphics that I later named broken graphics. This meant that not one panel on the boat was the same.

So as the boat paint job and now full restoration was under way we got to thinking what are we going to name it? Then it came to me, clearly it was a jet boat that blew a Rooster- Tail about 60 ft in the air so there it was: Rooster Tail. That made me think about my favorite cartoon as a kid (plus my family owned a big chicken farm)  Foghorn Leghorn (loved that show). Well, I will just let you see the rest.

Below is a better shot of  Foghorn Leghorn airbrushed on the engine cover.

As you can see we replaced the entire dash and interior along with marine grade Berger carpet. All wood for the seat panels were new and coated with fiberglass resin to keep the moisture out in case they got wet and a nice pearl white vinyl was used. Oh, check out the custom stitched seats.

As you can see after about 400 man hours the “quick little detail “turned into a major paint Boat Refinishing and Custom Graphics work of art that was sure to turn some heads on the water.
