Yea I surprised myself with how it came out. I wasn't even certain the boat was blue when I named her.

Hey Marc,

That's a very pretty boat! I love that color blue. I'm actually thinking about painting mine something similar. Very nice!

That's the original gelcoat color. Main downside to it is that it shows oxidation really easily. I brought it back from a very neglected condition last May. I'm curious how much work it will require next spring to get it looking as good.

Great looking boat.  I have always wanted a dark blue hull but I'm told it gets very hot in the summer in my part of the country.  But I can't help staring at them whenever I see one.  Nice boat!

Tony,
Thanks for the compliment. I've had 2 boats with blue hulls and sailed both in New England. Water gets in the low 70 degree range in August with daily high air temps 85-95°. I've never felt the blue was hotter down below than white hulled boats, though I've heard the same thing about dark hulls being warmer especially in southern locations.

We are generally I. The upper 90's in the summer with high humidity.  It makes sailing in general difficult.  I know the difference between getting in my dark colored car versus my wife's white car is significant.  But all that said, I love the dark blue hull.  If I could just put a/c on my little Com-Pac it would be perfect, or better yet just move to a better climate!

I noticed the cleat on the side of the coming,  hadn't seen one there on a 19, now my mind is spinning with the possibilities.... downhaul, furler, spring line, spinaker guy...

The cleat was added by a previous owner. I think it was probably used to tie off the furler. I tried using it that way but it was a slow way of doing things. Instead I added this item for securing the furler line.

Oops. Posted too soon Damsel.
You can see the loopcleat in my photo on the forward pushpit tube. This works really well to quickly tie off the furler when underway. Can easily make adjustments as necessary. I do use the cleat to tie off the furler when I am leaving the boat.
