thank you. He does awesome work. The blue wrapped wheel I had on it was a Christmas gift from my wife 6 years ago. The paracord has faded some but the wrapping is still as tight as it was 6 years ago.

The rigging chases from the tower to the console are done, the pins and brackets to attach to the tower are done as well. It's back if so Jason can fabricate the backrest, put the tower box in, and a few other things here and there. The shade template and backrest/seat templates will go in tomorrow am and the tower should get wrapped up by end of business tomorrow as well.

Your shit isn't custom unless the fabricator/installer writes your name with 5200.

She's done. I'll rig it tomorrow at Ed's shop (Epic Marine Manufacturing) then stop back off at Jason's (OTS Welding) on the way home for the tower cushions and weblon for the shade.

I noticed you didn't place in forward facing holders on this tower but it appears you had them on your last?
