… yes, it’s still Ali Vultee. So why am I reporting about her again? Because I guess last time she didn’t have a store, just a platform on which she worked and some vendors at yacht clubs. But now she has a real Boat Paint Shop of generous proportions, located in her very own marina to show off her freshly painted boats and where you can rezz and apply your freshly acquired hulls and sails immediately.
So when Ali sent me an IM asking if I wanted to see a new design of hers I only left a dusty cloud behind and was on my wayyyy to Argybargy, where her paintshop is located. I arrived still fiddling with the latest adjustments to a freshly installed Singularity Alpha viewer.
Ali showed me around her “showroom” which I found very neat and tidy for an artist’s studio. All her boat designs have their own vendors right beside the boats. Shopping can’t be much more convenient.
And while shopping for readymade designs is as easy as can get at Ali’s Boat Paint Shop, what she loves most is creating individual paintjobs. And I guess that’s what most sailors wanna have anyway, their own personalized boat.
It’s not just the shopping, the applying experience is as easy as it gets too: Just drop the delivered notecard and script in the hull and watch as your boat transforms from an ugly duckling into a wonderpretty swan. 😉
Oh, did I mention how nice Ali is? Ok, doing it nownow: Ali Vultee is sweet and super nice. Even the “hardboiled superbitch” Maiti Yenni said so, when I told her where I was. 😉
And as if she heard what I thought and wanted to prove it again she asked me if I had a Q2-m. What a question, hun; I guess I was the bishy who inspired Qyv to build that boat and I was probaly the first sailor sporting her on SL waters. And I guess the good old 2m is probably the boat with the most custom designs available for. Anyway, Ali gave me a handful of her designs right away, adding to my rich collection. Particularly the one design with oak deck and white transom made me fall in love with that boat … and Ali all over again. 😉
