I can’t wait!!! First time we actually got to see it!! I gotta say, things so nice I don’t want to get it wet. Hopefully it’s ready to run wed. Found some water in the drive. Prop shaft seal. The master, Vern at west coast drives, pitting new seals and filters in. Barrett doing full service to the 9’s. All the things.

The TG looks amazing Tank. Its funny you said "pitting" news seals in...sometimes pitting in the prop shafts causes the water intrusion! Hopefully not in your case, and it just needs new seals. But man, it is a sweet boat, only thing I see that I would change is the carpets, change to the new style flooring. Everything else is perfect! Cant wait for the running vids.

no no no. No “pitting”. “Putting” new prop shaft seals. I’m all too familiar with pitting prop shafts. Our last top gun with 3a’s had it happen. If you leave the props on water sits on the shafts and causes corrosion. These prop shafts look brand new. They good.

funny you mention the carpet. Wife was standing on it and was like, “the carpet is really comfy and the seasons hard to care for” lol. Plan is to put Seadeck in. We’ll see.

I like that a lot!! They did a good job.


put the boat back into storage today until tomorrow when we hopefully get the drives back from Vern.

Loaded up the cabin and dialed that in. Last owner left some nice custom fenders and embroidered lifelines. 😁👍
