Design a Paint Job for an UGLY Boat Contest

November 15, 2015
by Jody Aston, Editor Image

So, what would you do if you found a great big boat that you loved in every way, except...it was UGLY?!  Well, if you were Kim and Brendan, you would buy it in spite of its aesthetic shortcomings, then hold a contest and invite everyone to come up with a beautiful design for a new paint job! That's exactly what they are doing for their monstrosity sailing vessel, the S/V BerKat.

Kim and Brendan are even putting up a hundred bucks for the artist with the best design. So, to win that US$100, download a copy of a to-scale drawing of the boat here. Get out your box of crayons, or markers, and get those creative juices flowing.

The rules are pretty simple: (1) No more than four colors  (2) Simple design - no shading  (3) Bright neon colors are welcome  (4) Contest ends December 14, 2015. You can get a copy of the rules (in both English and Spanish) here.

When you are all set to turn in your winning entry, there are several options for submissions. Contact S/V Justus on VHF 68, call 4506-0765, or email This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

Let's see who can turn this ugly-duckling into a swan. Good luck!

They Warned Us It Was Ugly...
