I’ve painted boats on the water numerous times so I thought I would shake things up and paint a few yachts that are in storage at a local boatyard. It’s fun to walk around and see them close up. The hulls are normally hidden underwater so painting them on land allowed me to paint the shapes of the rudder and centerboard.

In case you’re wondering, the centerboard is the shape was on the bottom of the hull. I had to Google “yacht anatomy” to figure what it was called, I know nothing about boats.
