These were done before the new interior.This thing is scary fast and the acceleration will just about snap your head off your neck.

We've had 3 SeeDoo jet boats, 2 - 20'Challengers, and 1-Islandia, great 2nd boats. Looking at a pontoon with a big motor or the new Islandia with twins. Jeff

That is genuine North Miami Beach sand......and maybe a few chunks of coral...

I bought this boat from Cooper Capital Salvage......It was tossed around in a hurricane and wound after breaking free from someone's dock ...and landed on the beach......I wanted something to fix up and put a cool paint job on...







I have my own project section...here ....join.....its free.....and login to see all my junk...
