Default FIRST CLASS PAINT

Hello fellow boaters, For the last 18+ years I've been custom painting Bikes, Boats, Race cars, and whatever else will sit still long enough to apply an awesome custom finish to. However, about 3 years ago, a customer strolled into my retail shop with a 5 foot long hydro RC Boat. I KNEW 2 things at that very moment 1) I'd just discovered THE ULTIMATE CANVAS, and 2) I was going to see to it that this guy was gonna show up at his local boating hot spot, and be the envy of his fellow boaters. Lucky for him and I both, he was simply amazed when he rolled into the shop the following week to see his Hydro on a stand in the middle of my shop, with what he described as a paint job he could not have imagined in his most vivid dreams. I still don't think the guy was as happy as I was though. 2 days later, that same customer, accompanied by a fellow boating friend, came back to my shop with each of them carrying a large scale RC Boat...........you can imagine the rest.........
about a month later, I was approached by the owner of one of the bigger RC boat builders/distributors here in the states. He was looking for a custom paint company that could live up to the reputation and quality that his customers demanded. I'd seen the work on his website before, and my immediate thought; Piece of Cake.
Guys, there are a lot of QUALITY custom boat painters out there, who do great work, at what I'd assume is a great price. However, my goal is to stand apart from the crowd, but what do I know, I'm just another guy with an opinion. At the end of the day, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So with that said...behold

The quality and design of these hulls makes me the lucky one Bro. I've painted over 100 boats from over 10 different builders, and you see what I'm running. Keep up the great work Rick

Might have to apply a limit to how many pictures you can post in a day.

I cannot spend any $$ and all these pics are driving me nuts with envy!!

We could always work out a swap Matt. You prolly have some stuff lying around I could use I tried as hard as I possibly could to NOT get hooked on actually "running" one of these boats;painting them for a living was just as fun (so I thought) Now all I can do is have pity on my poor wife, cause I"M HOOKED

Here's a job I just finished. NOT a boat obviously, but another good example of the level of airbrush work that I offer. This is a deck lid for a 2300hp street car!! The car is even more wicked than the mural(just not quite as disturbing)

What would a paint job like this cost on a 46" deep vee( it's an Easy Vee by Zipp Kits? I like the black with green ghost flames about half way down the first page. I am in Evansville fairly often for business.
Thanks,
Bryan
