Great pics Frank! Sorry I missed everyone.

Mark, it's those Vs that make us look fat. You look skinnier when you hang out by the cats.

Beautiful boat, but I personally would have to get different colors in the cockpit.
Craig, that Cig was just gorgous !!! It was a little busy with the colors, but the detail in the interior, and under the hatch was 100% custom.
I'd be afraid to own it cause I'd be worried about scratching something. The washers on the motor plate bolts were anodized !!! UNBELIEVABLE Just beautiful.

That's OK, I would have to go home and sell Peggy on the idea and she's a tougher sell than I am

Do you remember what his boat show price was?

Roger
Roger, I did save some pics of the 42 from the day we set up last week. It had the new Merc 600's, and it sold for in the 260's. Scott IS getting one more with 600's in it. Should be in very soon.
But, better yet !!!!!!!!!! I just got back from Mercury Racing up in Fondulac today with Scott. He told me that he's getting the FIRST (2) 42's with the new Merc power that will be announced at Miami. We got a sneak preview of the new engine/drive combination.
Don't ask, CAN'T talk about it till after the Miami show.

I went over his head. There's this real cool guy that's the manager of Grand Sport, his name's Jim, do you know him? Well, anyway, I asked in a real nice way if he could take a few shots of the cabin while Roger was away for a few moments,(probably chasing some skirts or something) and he said sure, anything for you.
Thanks Jim, you're pretty good with my camera.

Couldn't help but noticing the ratio of boat vs babes pictures.

Great pictures!

Did you look at the glass work? sorry, I don't agree. You don't get a free pass on bad glass work because you spend a lot of money on paint. Just my opinion, the rest of the boat was rock star.
