I promised to post our thoughts on AmyJo's livery and here are our two designs, both very similar, that we were thinking about. The pictures have not turned out brilliant on the blog but clicking on them should open up a larger version that is clearer. Those of you using Windows Internet explorer should also be able to use CTRL and + or - to zoom in and out if it helps.

As I said both designs are very similar but we cannot make our minds up which we prefer and having not done anything like this before we would really appreciate your thoughts on them. Are there any sort of do's and don'ts I should concider? I notice most transoms are red and white, is my idea of blue and white OK or are they red and white for a reason? We also cannot make our minds up about the bow artwork, we would like the name on there but not in the cream panel some have, we would also like some sort of design but see most boats have diamonds or circles, is there a reason for that?
