New WakeWorld Tige Z3 Color Ideas
Ok, we're about to go into the Tige laboratory and create WakeWorld's next ride, a 2012 Tige Z3, but I'm having trouble coming up with a color scheme that I like and I need your help! If you got a spare moment, would you mind heading over to the Tige boat builder and come up with something that you think looks cool? If I use or am inspired by one of your submissions, I will hook that person up with some WakeWorld shwag of their choice.

The only real requirement is that it have some "graphite" in it because that will match my silver truck. My truck and trailer will also have matching black rims in case that affects your color choices. I'm a fan of simple, so lots of different colors probably won't appeal to me, but who knows! :)

Just go to http://tige.com/boats/z3 and click the "Build Your Tige" button at the upper right to start the boat builder. Once you've got something you like, do a screen capture (Alt-PrtScn) and paste the image into some kind of photo program so you can save it to jpg or gif. Then upload it to this thread.

Thanks for your help!

Simple and clean. I think this will look nice with a black trailer with your black rims.

Tige has that REALLY nice "platinum" color I've seen on some of their special edition boats.. It seems like all white with "platinum" is gonna be the ticket..

So far Umali wins.

The Wakeworld Tige Ghost?

durty_curt 09-30-2011 9:15 AM

I'm going with Joe here. Not sure if this sounds racist but.. Dave: keep it right, stay white!

wakeworld 09-30-2011 10:00 AM

Some of those lack "graphite!" I gotta match the truck. Plus, I want to mix it up some. In the last ten years I've had an all white boat for eight of those. I still love all-white, but I'm looking to get nutty this time around! :)

wakescene 09-30-2011 10:37 AM

Here's my rendition! - I saved the build info too.

PLR, I'm liking that bad boy too! I also like some of the ones like Alan and Mark with the white where the silver Tige logo is. Keep 'em coming!

dbdb 09-30-2011 3:39 PM

Thanks David.
I've always dreamed of designing a boat for myself. Designing one someone else like enough to do would be the next best thing.

a few clean looking designs

tampawake 10-03-2011 3:13 PM

Just got back from going tooth and nail through a Z3. That boat is the real deal!!! You are going to love this boat. Everything is so well thought out. Little things like the floorboard hinging up so you can get to all your ballast pumps. The flipping sun deck or walk through. The back storage folds to the middle of the boat so you if your at a dock or putting stuff in your boat from the side you can look in or throw stuff in without getting in the boat. The boat is deep you feel like your sitting in your living room. I am 6'1" and fit in the bow no problem. You guys are going to love this boat.

kko13 10-03-2011 7:49 PM

Think metalic!! It is so sick in metalic. The graphite metalic is nice you will love it.

I can believe nobody's asked Dave if he's "giving up the ghost" yet? God Wakeworld sucks at lame jokes. But anyway...

there have been some other mostly gray designs, but how about "The GRAY Ghost" ??

migs 10-04-2011 3:37 PM

All Black, no accents, no graphics.

So far I'm liking what PLR has done. I would do the black and gray in their pearl/metallic to get a little sparkle. It's hard for it to look good on paper, but I think it would look really sharp when it's done. Any thoughts?

Attachment 17959

wakerider111 10-13-2011 3:22 PM

i think it is good. but what about a gray dash to decrease the temperature a couple degrees. especially when you go to reach for _______ item set there after baking in the sun... not that gray will be terribly cooler than black so maybe it doesn't matter

wakeworld 10-13-2011 4:03 PM

That might be an idea, but I've got black right now and it's not really a problem. Not sure if I've ever had gray. Might be time to try it.

ttrigo 10-13-2011 4:20 PM

I like funkybunch's first one he posted at 11:03. Looks kinda like an epic tough. Joe's looks sweet too, but i love all white boats.

wakerider111 10-13-2011 11:01 PM

another thing to consider about black or gray for the dash is
1. black dash - match the dash to the tower (things above the deck are black)
2. gray dash - Match the dash to the gray front of the boat and the gray decking.

dbdb 10-14-2011 10:02 AM

I think its going to look really damn good! I'd keep the black dash.

Wow, those all look great, especially the first and last. Very clean.

polarbill 10-20-2011 10:44 AM

David, have you decided on or ordered your boat yet? PLR's combo is really good looking and even though I personally don't like graphics those one's look a little more subdued and a good combo of classic and new/hip.

wakeworld 10-20-2011 11:00 AM

I'm going to go with what I posted. The front graphic will be replaced with a WakeWorld logo of some sort. I'm waiting to hear back today on the start date, but it should be soon.

dbdb 10-20-2011 11:55 AM

It's going to look good!

polarbill 10-21-2011 10:12 AM

Nice, it is going to look awesome as a real boat.

dbdb 10-28-2011 6:41 PM

Did they tell you when they are going to start it yet?

wakeworld 10-28-2011 6:48 PM

Unfortunately, no. Still waiting to hear back.

dbdb 10-28-2011 7:58 PM

Do I get any WW points for picking out the winning design?

wakeworld 10-28-2011 9:45 PM

I'll hook you up with any WakeWorld item you want. Just PM me your choice, size and address.

I had my grays mixed up, so I tweaked the final version a little. I changed all the "Granite" to "Stone," which is a lighter gray that will better match my truck.

Be sure to bring it down to the Hardy Memorial Day so we can check it out in person.
