story board with the Hunter Green for the sheer plank, "Fired Clay" (brings to mind a dark terra cotta, doesn't it? It is more of a soft cream color) for the hull and strips of DF representing the rub-rails and trim (the real ones are mahogany), I thought the Hunter Green might be too dark. But I wanted to see what it looks like in bright, full sunlight… It still looks dark - nearly black. So we began sampling other greens. We discovered two things:
- There are way too many shades of green; and
- There is a wide gap between the Hunter Green we began with and the next darkest shade we could find.
The near-term sequence should go something like this:
- Paint the sheer planks
- Install the trim pieces
- Install the decking
- Install the rub-rails
But we're getting there!
