Some air brush the paint on the welds and some do nothing. East Cape hand brushes it as it’s a cleaner finish. Here’s one of the guys going over the punch list of my boat and touching up areas that may have been missed. Quality and true fit n finish!!!!

The Vantage is alot more alike a YF21 or an Egret 2011 than an Egret Moccasin 210; I doubt many are cross shopping a 19' Vantage and a 21' Egret 2011 but that is a different thread

Yeah, I got to see it installed today. We met with the upholstery guys and went over the design. Hope to have some cushion on the boat by mid next week.

@76 man I remember when u picked out the seats. Me being somewhat of a minimalist I thought it was gonna be too much for that boat (not a quality thing but like a room thing and deck lay out)....boy was I ever wrong about that cudos to you and your Mrs for having that visison. They look fantastic

Thank you! I have to give Allie all the credit. She really had a vision. She went to dealers every Saturday to look at all the Llebroc seats to see what she liked. She spent all day at Icast looking at stuff for the boat. She put all the colors and fabric together with the help of Kevin and the East Cape Team to make the boat flow. Everytime I wanted to do something that would be too busy her and Kevin would straighten me out. I really have to give her the credit!

Wow! that is a beautiful boat! I am consistently impressed with the level of detail in this build. These guys are truly doing their best work which is reward in itself. I do believe that there is one incongruous line that stands out as not flowing with the curvaceous beauty of the overall design,and it is the upper station pod. I read that it was a modified console and, Im sorry, thats what it looks like. The flat frontal surface and rectilinear lines make me think these guys could come up with something worlds better. Congratulations on an Amazing build and my condolences on the Mako.

A shot of their welder in action adding rod holders to the rear of the hardtop.

Here is another shot of the rod holders going on the hard top.
We fit 7 standard well spaced out rod holders and 2 kingfish, giving us a total of 20 on the tower.
