Default Why are boats gay?

Well at least when I'm talking about accent colors. I like looking at boats cause that will probably be my next toy(18-26', BB, stabin cabin), however 90% of the boats I'm looking at have the gayest interior/accent colors. I'm talking about yellows, purples, greens and blues. Do these colors resist fading better then other colors or were the boat designers just sally's?

Look at newer boats. The 80's were full of pastels.

Boats typically last a lot longer then cars, they don't get used nearly as often, and hold their value and condition for a long time. Thus when you are looking at a "fairly" new boat that is a 90-98 you get lots of early 90's neon and mid to late 90's easter egg colors and purples. (like sol goodes boat lol).

If you find the right checkmate you may still run into metalflake well into the 90's also.


Thats why I am straight pimping the white, grey, and black, my boat will never have a dated or gay color scheme.

Looks like Chuck is taking the shrimp boat to tuna town!


Brand new boats don't have gay looking interiors. Mid 90's and earlier seem to though.

Why don't you invest some money into that nice amount of debt you're piling up, or give some back to your parents? It's like you're going in reverse...most people don't get what they want until they're older and have money. You just get everything when you're young and have people supporting you, and then you'll have nothing when you're 50 years old.

maybe skoots is drawn to the gay boats. our early 90's trophy is white, has white/red seats, and all the cloth, carpet, headliner, etc... is gray.

There's a Four Winns by me for sale with the bright 80s aquamarine/turquoise trim, trailer, and full canvas. I didn't know sunbrella came in that color.

It's like this, but brighter....

no i just noticed it was at the top of the page and it had Gay and Skooterbuilt on it. Had to take a peak, kind of like a train wreck, you just have to look.


Then Google image search for Boats gay returned that image
