The gelcoat is as shiny as it looks in the photo's.  This boat has had the benefit of being under cover in fresh water for the last few years as well.  Owner has done an outstanding job keeping her in top shape.  

"Reel Sketchy" when the captain likes to fish and the second mate is an avid artist.  Name is transferable.
