What motors are you going with? There is a rumor that evinrude is coming out with a spot lock feature and it will be an "update". But who knows.
Well, I am hoping that my boat is done by the end of July, mid August. I'm going to have to pull the trigger on motors pretty quick. Honestly I am just not a fan of 2 strokes. Currently my options are Suzuki, and Yamaha. Mercury isn't available. I really would like to see your performance numbers at cruise. 4k RPM specifically. I'd like to see Salty with Protech 4 and a 3 blade 15.25 X 19. I have a little bit of time to figure it out.

I'm going 2 stroke if I have to pay Dave to make me a sound proof dog house to hang on it so be it.

My boat is gray also. It's a little oxidized and looking dull so next spring I'm going to get the buffer out and get to work.

I almost skipped a beat. There's only room for ONE cup holder now. This is going to be a problem.... Then I thought about it more. My dash is wider. Disaster avoided.

It's ok. I'll have lots of cup holders all over the boat. Might even put some in between the helm seats (still thinking about that one though, not sure if I'm going to want the drink so close to the seats)

Yea. First spotitis. Part of why I'm buying the base model. If she burns a seat with those damned cigarettes it's only a $600 cry. Is it legal to sneak Chanix in her coffee?


You have another solution. Banish her to the forward deck if she puts Chit in your cup holder. Second offense an hour in the coffin box. Hahaha

Here are the details you need to order the Polyform custom bouys. Mine are black tips with grey middles. I use black ropes on my boat which matches really well. I have a Sea Sharp sticker on each one. I don’t have a picture but mine are the F5 size.

Polyform doesnt sell dorext to the public but this is who is who the Sales Manager Tom at Polyform told me to call to custom order them.

Note the F5s are big but we have big boats. You really need em. Hope this helps.

On those switches, do you have a panel coming or other indicators (like on the blue boat that just came out) How will you know what each switch does? Maybe I missed it in threads above. Also, is your boat more finished interior than the demo hull #1, or is that just the pics making it look so? Looking really good (and close) now!
