Merc 150-4s, with w 7.25 lift plate ,as I run both a jet and prop, I carry both and swap as needed. Rattle can paint has come a long way! Flipping the boat makes it easy to do the splash/rolls on the sides..well that and some ceiling tie wires ,bent to pin down the reelfoot stencils as I went.I did some testing... I camo'ed up a couple political yard signs..that I found...painted the boats base color on them them I picked the colors that look the most like my hunting fishing /river bank,
Placed it out in the woods (so to say) then i stood back and looked at it ,thats how the grey got in there...then bam! I hit the rite combo!

I don't know. I noticed that some of the leaf patterns were not scattered enough. Don't you think that the fish will notice....???? Ha Ha

Just pulling your leg. Looks great. It is amazing what a pattern and some flat spray paint can do. I did a console on my G3. My BIL said " well, you really can't make a mistake" He was right!

If it weren't for the teeth I'd never even seen the "boat".
