For your project I don't think you need a gradient. All your stripes
will be the same colour over the width of a stripe.
So why not just use the pen tool and build up an image of various
width horizontal colours. When half the pattern is done, double the
canvas size. Select the striped area and copy and paste it as a new
layer. Flip it with the Defomation tool and bring the 2 parts
There are several ways to draw the lines conventionally without
needing a mask.
This is going to be one wild boat :-)
