I have a 2600se with the blue stripe. Unfortunately the blue was heavily faded. I would spend at least 40-50 hrs a year trying to bring out the once shining blue. No luck, so I decided I was going to paint it a charcoal metallic to better match the canvas. After pricing out a good quality paint and again factoring in labour the cost was considerable. A frien mentioned wrapping the boat and after careful investigating found it to be a great alternative. Iím real happy with it and it only took a day.
