Just got a 93 AII Q, in great condition. The red deck is a bit more faded than i'd like, if I can do something about it.
Is it possible to re-dye it? Or just name it Big Pink?

I have had good success mixing paint tint with a canvas re-proofing brush on treatment. Get some tint from the paint shop and mix in small amounts till it looks close to the color you want and brush it in. The last time I did this I used a water based re-proof agent. Paint tint is compatible with both oil and water based re-proofers. A sample patch is always a good idea (under paddles).

Cheers Jim
