i was told a few months ago about 475 dollars if my memory is correct. its cheaper if u get a couple of other boats together and hire a chopper to take photos for u. plus u will get alot more pics to choose from.

Chances are that you need not do nothing to get the pics. They should be showing up shortly in your mailbox, along with a bill. Good luck.

i bought a picture from boatpix last year. You have to go to their website and type in your boats registration number and your address. Then they send you a tube with 3 or 4 pictures to choose from. then you just send back the ones you don't want and they charge you for what you keep. I bought one for like $250 or something if i remember correctly.

It is very expensive for one picture, but how often do you get the opportunity to get an aerial picture at full throttle?

here is a Picture of the picture that i bought. The glare is because of my flash on the picture frame.

Boatpix was on Lake Travis during the last Poker Run. To order pictures from their website, you must enter a credit card number. I did get some great shots from them a few years ago (Lake Texoma) but I don't remember ordering them, they just showed up with a note to pay or send them back. It would be great if you could see the shots on their website before ordering them. Kind of confusing, but they do get some great shots!

You have to fill out their online form. They send you the pics to look at. I got 2 large size, and 4-5 8X10s. If you like them, you buy them. If not, send them back and pay nothing. If you keep them do NOT pay the bill yet. They send a second statement offering a 50% discount. It will be around $500.00. A good deal if you ask me.

The only problem is they are not very organized. I filled out the form and never got the pics. I called and the lady who answered said they could not find them. 2 weeks later they showed up at my house. Other people have had billing issues.

All right I sent in the info. It WAS the first day on the water with the new boat. We'll see if my credit gets screwed up. Hopeful there will be great shots of us rocketing along at 40mph......

[QUOTE=marylandmark;2119220]Nice boat- I drank many a beer on that boat with Rob!

Thanks. Was Rob the original owner? I bought it from Don in NJ who was the second owner. The only thing i know about the original owner was that he lived in the Baltimore area. The boat was called Katywompus when i bought it and it was kept in impeccable condition.

Its possible that you might be thinking of Troy's boat. He has the same year/model and the same graphics package.
