VB...you are probably correct on how people are viewing it. the engines ARE stock...seals are still there!...i TOTALLY went through the same thing prior to building this one...start to add in FULL hydraulics, the speed and performance YOU want, not what the manufacture says you will get!,,,the sound system and how you want the boat rigged/wired,,,4 person communication system,,,custom paint,,,then all the little add on's that start to add up. what about the expense of dial'n in the boat...even if you had the $$ to allot for it, how many really know how to do it or will do it?? it's a lot more than 24k difference. for those that have ridden on the boat? they are fully aware that some time went in to it...actually there is a lot more left in the hull and i can help with that for the right person...it's just not worth it to me...runs PLENTY good enough for me! but hey what do i know???
any marks vinyl leaves can be taken out with a wheel if the boat in not a faded mess. mine is all paint and well taken care of.
you can very easily cover the name with a new vinyl technology like we used on the race boat and no one would be the wiser. or i'll have all the graphics removed from the boat in a weekend so i can supply ya with a all white hull if that is what they would like.
