The fabricator/artist, Gary was very fond of galvanizing since he had dealt with it in his previous job. He called out the overall aesthetics of galvanizing and how he envisioned it making the Shark pop. Gary also knew that since this was going to be exposed outside of his home he needed a coating that would last. The durability of hot-dip galvanizing was a huge factor in his coating decision.
