Help needed choosing my colors

It's getting to be crunch time, I need to make a decision on my color scheme for my next G23. Tell me your favorite number. Thanks in advance!

bryce2320 01-23-2013 7:21 PM

I vote for 9

2,8 or 10 if you want color

This one:

Which I believe is your #1 possibly.

You get a new boat every year so you have nothing to loose, add a little flair go with the green and add a green tower

14. It adds color and looks hella clean doing it...

Thanks for the input everyone! Two votes for #1 so far, but no much other love for 1, 3 or 4? I was partial to those, but I plan on selling it next year so I want to make sure I get something favorable to others.

For reference my current boat is below. I'm not against the blues but there just seems to be so many of them out there (even quite-a-few greens...3 with current color scheme). One reason I am hesitant on the green is that I had a few potential buyers say they were going to pass because green wasn't really their color of choice.

illini88 01-24-2013 5:56 AM

1, 4, and 12, for me. My initial run through, I liked 1 better than 4. But, after looking at them, I think I prefer the white going all the way to the pow point on 4. I also think on the water, having the black on the back come up a little higher (like 4) will look better than 1, because you'll see more of that accent. From looking at the pic above, very little of the black at the back of 1 will be visible when on the water. I also like 12. How would it look with a red tower? There's just something about the Nautiques with the colored towers that always catches my eye.

Did you get the green one sold?

Bumpass1 01-24-2013 6:10 AM

2 and 5

Good insight, SS. The pic above is setup for surfing (which I do maybe twice a year)...if it's sitting level you can see it better (below). Mine is still for sale, if it's not sold within the next, I'll be doing a straight trade. My final change date on the new one is Feb 1st.

If I was going to purchase a G23, I would order something like this (please forgive my lack of photochop skilz):

iShredSAN 01-24-2013 8:22 AM

^^^ What Chatt said!

wakereviews 01-24-2013 9:08 AM

What Chatt? You'd order an all white or black boat? That doesn't sound like you at all :)

Personally I like 1 and 3.

wakedaveup 01-24-2013 9:22 AM

We just picked up an all white G this week. Love the looks of that boat, so clean. It's not solid white like the one in Chatt's pic above, it has the decals, but if for whatever reason you would consider it (not to buy I know you are ordering one) I'll post some pics for you.

migs 01-24-2013 9:36 AM

^^post those up please!

jarrod 01-24-2013 9:43 AM

Is ordering without the busy graphics an option?

J-Rod, from my knowledge yes you can order one without the graphics.

^^^That little axle looks pretty pissed right now!! Sketchy!

jarrod 01-24-2013 11:48 AM

dbdb 01-24-2013 11:52 AM

I like chattwake's black edition

patrick232 01-24-2013 12:04 PM

# 5

edgeski1 01-24-2013 12:25 PM

i'd do 4. Less color= less visible waterspots to me. and that's a whole-lotta boat for watersports to show

whirli_7 01-24-2013 12:46 PM

I like the way the lines flow on 4

snowslider76 01-25-2013 10:00 AM

3 and 8 would be my choices, I'd do a black tower instead of white though I think it would stand out more somehow.

can't believe I forgot these two options. thanks for the input everyone, keep it coming!

chriscno 01-26-2013 12:56 AM

9 or 14

sppeders 01-26-2013 8:26 AM

Playing around a little on nautique.com, if i had to design a boat i'd probably go, forward stripe/main stripe... white. bottom... either dark blue, black or red...... accent--Red. Tower Dark blue, or what ever the bottom paint is.

It would be too hard for me to design a boat, i better stick with the one i've got. :)

kko13 01-26-2013 6:46 PM

17 no doubt

jeff_mn 01-28-2013 12:52 PM

All black or all white like Chatts post.

Since your truck is white, go white. "If it aint white, it aint right"

If red is still in the cards.

Bamabonners 01-28-2013 1:53 PM

i don't care for the bloated pig boat, but of those choices I like #2.

Is that just a sticker on the side or is it in the gelcoat. I meant to check that at the boat show, but forgot to check.

Sorry, Jay, not keen to any of those choices. If it were me, I'd definitely keep the forward stripe and the main stripe the same color. That way, you could remove the graphic, when it gets dated, and the boat will still look good. I'd also stay away from a lot of black and green, if you want to sell fast. Go with blues or reds.

migs 01-29-2013 9:54 PM


King12 01-29-2013 10:55 PM

Dave O's white g is probably the cleanest one i've seen yet. If you wont go for that id guess 17 is the next best. That white is awesome though.

Another Option. Again, no way could i make this decision if it was my boat.... You should have seen me today in the house we're building trying to figure out where i want light switches.... LOL

NotSure123 01-30-2013 1:22 PM

^^^^SICK! Can I change my vote!? haha

delmage171 01-30-2013 2:19 PM

Heres my vote! Make sure your new G23 is on a sick Boatmate trailer like your green one ;)



chillinoj 01-30-2013 2:46 PM

America! I saw a "Texas" wakesetter at the Houston boat show. The red, white, and blue combo was gorgeous!

migs 01-30-2013 3:26 PM

^^^thats the one. #1. Sickest G ever!
noticed how they blacked out the vents in the rear. #1sikG

JamesHawk101 01-30-2013 4:46 PM

Not to jack your thread here but I am also hitting crunch time for picking colors for a G23. Opinions please?

Sorry again don't mean to hijack your thread I just don't wanna create the same thread.

illini88 01-30-2013 4:59 PM

I'd like to see the N3 style G with the black carried up the transom like in #4.

ironj32 02-08-2013 6:24 AM

I've got it narrowed down to the following. Right now I think I'm leaning towards #3, but #2 looks super rad as well.

Yea, I think I will probably go with Boatmate again, since they seem to have the lowest profile trailer. With the low water levels we've been having, I need to keep the bunks as low as possible.

I'm probably going to do the same trailer, just swap out the green for white.

FunkyBunch 02-08-2013 7:19 AM

IMO #2 while the black gunnels on #3 look cool they suck in the summer when you put an arm up there. That comes from someone in TX though so since your up north you may not care.

michridr69 02-08-2013 7:22 AM


brycejb328 02-08-2013 7:34 AM


The change in color between the bow and the rest of the boat does nothing for the flow of the color scheme.

willyt 02-08-2013 8:41 AM

could you design an all pink one and put a curly tail on it?

Bamabonners 02-08-2013 9:41 AM

Now that's FUNNY!! the piG23 that's funny righ there

You could put some ears on the pig too.

It could look like a 1980s station wagon for all I care. I base my boat purchase on performance and wakeboard wake.

With that said, I still want a bad@ss color scheme. I took a trip to my dealer to get some color ideas and they had one with no graphics. Got me thinking, so I did a little photoshop work on #2.

simplej 02-09-2013 2:28 PM

Above is the best looking g Ive ever seen.

snowboardcorey 02-09-2013 2:34 PM

Jay, I'll ride behind any of these but I'm only paying gas money if you get 3. That's the winner!

ixfe 02-09-2013 5:56 PM

I say leave the graphic on. The boat needs it. It just looks way too tall and bloated without it.

My vote is one of these two...

photoshopped in a black hull.

illini88 02-10-2013 6:28 AM

Could your dealer get any pics for you of what one of these things looks like before they put the graphics on? It's hard to tell from the aps where you choose colors, due to the scale.

I love photoshop.

brichter14 02-10-2013 7:53 AM

I am confused as to why people buy a boat and then sell and get something new the next year. Do you just enjoy paying interest and never knocking down that principal? Inform me if I am missing something
