Feb of '03.

Thought my face was gonna fall off.

I love it! I have 3 boats gettinmg shipped to my showroom from the East Coast. No winterizing, no storage, and the owners can fly in and use the boat in fresh water.
Did I mention its November and 88 degrees outside. Nuthing like looking at Havasu Hotties in Bikinis and Santa Hats in December.
