Yup, I'm still grinning ear to ear...and glad that I "missed out" on those two other boats...

The drives are immaculate except for a piece missing out of the skeg on the starboad drive. I am thinking of getting a set of skeg guards as a temporary measure...does anyone know if they make them for the TRS?

Whadda you think, Fred?

Oh...here's the cabin(which is actually leather)...with the original, working Blaupunkt Boston tape deck and remote! I can't tell you how many I've see with the remote missing, the console looks silly with the hole where the remote is supposed to go...

okay..last pic of the cockpit(under blue canopy, rmember), its white with black and green piping---not a single tear in it anywhere! Also has Pirelli floor, the original owner spared no expense and was such a great guy to do business with...I'm gonna be buying a new car from him shortly as he owns several car dealerships in the DC area.

I know, I know...the AT guys are gonna start complaining soon , so last one and I'll leave you guys alone...BTW, I'm still 60 miles away from the boat during the week, otherwise I'd be sitting in the cabin having a beer right now!!

The only thing that sucks about this boat is that it has that broken skeg, one of the plexi wind deflectors broke and the gas shocks which hold the cabin hatches up have given up(ordered new ones from Goodfella today)...oh and the fact that I can't use it right now.

Oh yeah, and Fred...after these few little things get fixed, I'll have to go out ang buy a real project boat to keep me busy!! I hate not having any projects!

wow! TALK ABOUT A SURVIVOR!!!!

It`s nice to see that some people really treasure thier toys. I can appreciate the care that has been taken with that boat because it is a lot of work to keep them looking that good!

Good luck and keep the pics coming ....keep the AT guys at bay!
