:rofl:

I quite agree. It took me a long time to get used to the "KevLight" look. Kevlar is kinda disgusting looking to me without clothes.

Problem for me is I really wanted that particular design (David Yost "NorthStar" made by Bell Canoe). It is considered by many to be one of the best designed 16 1/2' tandem touring canoes ever (up there with the Mad River "Malechite" and the Swift "Kipawa") and it only comes in KevLight and Black/Gold (much better, but $$$) at this point. I love it, but the looks never reached out and grabbed me ('cept for the lines of the boat itself, which are pure DY).

Maybe I'll get it painted red after all. You guys have got me downright self-conscious about it now. :oops:
