Well, I've seen a few compliments about the music. What's so cool about guys screaming words I can't understand in monotone backed up by tweaking the same boring guitar riff over and over?

Lay down some AC-DC or Van Halen on that video

Guess I'm gettin' old....

im still waiting on the grab bars to come back from powdercoat and the scoops are being finished today. i will post some pics early this week when its all complete... i was really pleased with the new interior and how everything matched up.

hows your boat coming along? will you ever bring it down my way?
Motors are back together except for trannies...those are going out this week.

Bilge has been completely repainted and it's all bright white...looks great. When we took things out of the bilge (battery boxes, light, power steering resevoir etc), they were painted to the DuPont Hue Candy Blue.

Transom assemblies were painted Candy Blue along with the trim tabs and rams. Once it's back together (this week) we'll take more pics.

This week we should be paining the upper deck. From there we can put the name on the back and Apache name on the fairing.

Doubt we'll get out your way anytime soon, although we'd love to see LOTO. We would love to take her out on the ocean just once and experience that.

Lake Erie gives us our fair share of trouble...she gets snotty and ugly all too often. So far the boat has responded nicely to the snot water, much better than we expected. If we ever get out your way we'll give you a call.

By the way, the interior looks great.......did not care for the old interior personally, although my husband didn't think it was that bad.

Rob asked in a previous post......what pitch and diameter props are you running and what drive ratio?

18X29 1:5:1

and you? or any suggestions

whats funny about the old interior is all the comments about it and how detailed the work really was... even the interior guy was amazed at how detailed it was. chad had spent a lot of money to get that job done.

i will get some really good pics this week of the interior
