From Neutral to Eye Popping…

Let It Be has now been in charter for a bit over 2 years (already!) and she has been an excellent boat.  Many people have enjoyed sailing her from one beautiful BVI hot spot to the next.  We have been very fortunate because most of the maintenance has been routine and expected.  In other words, Let It Be has been reliable, fun and predictable.

LIB patiently awaits us.

However, there is one purely cosmetic item we have been anxious to improve ~ the exterior cushions on LIB.  The cushions currently aboard have been workhorses, but I think it is almost time for them to be put out to pasture.

Perfectly neutral and acceptable cushions.

We hope to have new cushions fabricated in September so they will be ready for the post hurricane 2015 season. While choices are not final, the current front runner of color pallets is the one pictured below:

This could add a lot of pop!

I think that teal blue with lime green piping could make some beautiful cushions. Add some accent pillows in the stripe material and a few others in the tangerine and LIB will look mighty pretty, I think.

We plan on taking a sample of the teal blue with us on our next trip, just make sure it doesn’t get too hot in that Caribbean sunshine.  We sure don’t want our guests getting scorched each time they sit at the helm!

Do you think those colors will be beautiful or do you prefer a more traditional, single color theme?
