Talk about an insane amount of detail!?!?!

My 3 1/2 year old son would LOVE this thing - any one know what kind of time went into this paint job!?

to each their own, I'd prefer to go tasteful and use the money not spent on those kind of details to get something nice that sparkles But of course I will never have that kind of money so I guess it doesn't matter anyway.

I'm sure Mark at Visual Imagination had a great deal of time in that boat, if you see the boat in person it is unreal.

It is off the hook. Even though I have not seen it in person, the pictures, while I am sure do not do it justice, show incredible detail.

At first look I said, "whow, too much"....But as you go through the pics....F*ck it, I'll be the first to say it...That thing is bad azz! Why was this not the next Miami Boat Show theme boat? That thing is CRAZY detailed! I love all the detail in the engine compartment. The tools in the bildge, all the acme stuff, tweety sawing the stringer, and all the stringers painted like raw wood. TIGHT! I'd like to know the hours of work into that paint and the cost.

I had heard in the neighborhood of 3000 man hours went into the theme and it cost 100K .

The detail and artistry is amazing, Probably the most detailed work I have ever seen. I don't feel it is my place to reveal the cost but I will tell you that it was OVER $100K.
