It's a boat, but ...

ain't this sweet?


Imagine a skoolie wrapped around that - wonder if it would scale?
Probably something that everybody knows already but for those looking for floorplans boat classifieds are a good place to look, so are airplanes. Those Gulfstreams are pretty snazzy and about the same proportion and shape look like they might scale down to 'bus width' pretty well.

Re: It's a boat, but ...

I can see that in a bus....looks nice but I dont see this translating to my mother of all tailgate buses?

Maybe Im a little too country for that?

Not forcing it on you or implying that it's the ne plus ultra of tailgaters - I just saw this picture, liked it and thought others else might too.

Zen and the Art of Bus Maintenance

Hey, that's a ripoff of my design!

I really do like that layout. Mine will differ in the fabric (don't like the looks of that operating-room white, in addition to pragmatic issues mentioned already). Probably I will go into Hancock or JoAnn Fabrics or one of them and ask, "Got anything in spilled-beer-and-dropped-pizza-with-coffee-and-peanut-butter-accents?" Of course, a panoramic view all around.

Country-music fans here may have already heard Brad Paisley's universal suggestion: Camouflage!

I read Zen and... in Intro Philosophy in college. Good book. It was around the time I decided that one day I'd have a skoolie.

Yeah, I was thinking if I used the white it would change color all by itself
MIght be fun to watch over time, like a mold growing experiment in school.
Kinda Zen'ish as well - wonder what color it'll eventually become?
