Default My first boat is almost done!

I went to the shop today and took some pics of it. Should be about a week or so until i get to put it in the water. I'm changing everything on the dash panel and the steering wheel and throttle/shifter too. In the pics, the motor (brand new Pfaff 598) is just waiting for the exhaust pipes and it'll be ready to go once the gauges are all changed out. The hull is a 1999 27' Rayson Craft, by Rudy Raymos. Here's some pics:

Thanks, I'm just hoping that it runs strong without any major issues.

Yes, the pictures were taken in Huntington Beach, at Paul Pfaff's shop.

actually, this one dyno'd out to 790hp!! Pfaff Racing built this motor for the LA Boat show and hadn't been able to move it yet this year, so i got a good deal on it.

I will cruise the Lido show, as long as the guys get her up and running in time. Are you gonna be at the show?
