That looks sweeter than 95% of the new boats I see. If I had it to do over, I would have got a plain white hull and done vynal.

Thanks everyone I am glad you all like it as much as I do.

If any one wants to see some more of Ryan's work check out his website

Today I ripped out all of the interior. in the photos its hard to tell but it is a light gray color. It looked okay before.... but with the new graphics it just looks out dated. I don't have enough money to redo the whole interior so I am going to use automotive vinyl interior dye to change the gray to white. I have used these dyes many times before in auto restoration and on parts of my last boat. It should cast me about a $100 in materials and I will have a new interior. I don't know how long it will last on a boat but I should get a few years out of it before I re do everything from scratch. As soon as this is done it is going to NJ to get the motor installed..... Its been a year and a half long project and I am almost finished. I cant wait.

If anyone is interested in a set of bow flags please let me know. They are $25 a set ( right and left) I have about 75 sets available and they are ready for shipping. They measure about 18" X 7" just drop me a email [email protected] or mail a check to

HOLY **** PAUL, I CANT BELIEVE THE DIFFERENCE !! You just saved your self 40 large by redoing the graphics instead of buying a new ride. It looks GREAT
