Default New paint scheme and lauched!

We know that not everyone visits some of the other boat sections and we wanted to share a before/after picture of our long winter project.

Someone asked us after a few days in the water if it was worth it. After a week and having our lives back, the answer is yes.

The first picture is the old scheme, second the new one. I also have pics of the gauges, put a new faring on it, new cabin door and a few other things here and there.

Here are the gauges and inside of the cabin. Much thanks to Lofty for doing the panels!

Ran out of money in order to buy a new trailer! The trailer comes after the swim platform.

Forgot to mention it's an '88 Chris Craft Stinger. We have a thread in the Chris Craft section titled "My Winter Progress" and there's pics of how the windshield was made, etc.

I'm impressed looks like a very nice job was done. I would have never guessed it was an 88, looks way to smooth. Good work.

Yea, and I'll be PMing you again to ask how to do it!

Thanks everyone. It was quite a project. I don't know if we'd ever take anything on like this again. We literally spent all our free time working on her.

The windshield took a while but it was worth it when we fit it on the boat and the line was perfect.

It looks great I can't believe it is an 88, I am assuming you did the painting yourself, WOW. Bring her to the LEOPA poker run, so we can get a real good look
