the window installiation on the canopy left alot to be desired.
i agree, it looked like crap but i figured they were rushing to get er done. cant imagine thats the final galss install i dont know if they were even finished rigging it or if the second engine is complete, it hasn't been wet yet from what they told be. the paint was out of control on it. the drive and rudder rigging look tight.

Boat crap was nice but nothing beats a nice rack, in my humble opinion.

LOL, your right about the boats and especially the racks. I actually thought the boats were pretty boring this year.

Ballistic got back from TAOD on the Feb 6th and left for the show on the 10th. The windows were just placed in temporarily along with the rudder and just about everything else

Well I guess its just me, but the Ballistic was the best-in-show at the show. I am aware it was not complete. From what I understand the glass, interior, and engines were not completed. Who cares. The boat is one of a kind and undoubtedly the best boat there. I can not wait to see it in the water. Just let us known when that time comes Gatorone.
Beautiful boat Bill. Hope to see it in Sarasota or at least Jacksonville.
