When i got it on the trailer i was SURE id see at least 10 stress cracks! Couldnt find one single crack throughout the whole boat! On a side note, does anyone know where to get the white molding that holds up the windshield? My white one has got to go.
Boat still looks great. I was the owner of that boat back in 2001 when Kirk built it for me. He fabricated the windshield for me and that was the first Kryptonite to get a wind deflector. I am pretty sure he cut the white piece down on a table saw with the angle he needed and shaped it around the fairing. Does the boat still have the hp500 bulldog?

The seats are bolted in with machine bolts (not lags), on my 2005, anchored in to the fiberglas substrate. the 2002 I rigged had the bolsters lagged into a 1/2 peice of plywood glued into the floor (not a very good idea) The lags were cut down because the original rigger could not figure out how to get thru the heavy glass 1/2" below the floor on the inboard sides of both seats. We pulled the seats (they kept getting loose) and drilled thru the heavy fiberglass installed anchors and installed the machine bolts.
They ar rock solid now.

Boat still has the hp500. Just got new cushions for the cabin installed a couple weeks ago. Boats going to Don Frost in a couple weeks for new cockpit interior. We're having all the scratches fixed and engine is getting rebuilt by Joey at ECM over the winter.

If you get a chance to take some pics that would be great. Your boat is awesome I wish I had gone to look at it when it was for sale.

Thanks

Is that the one in the classifieds? Blue paint job?

If not, make sure to post some pics so we can take a look.

Good luck with the sale.
