Whatever you do, have Harold from Grafikworx paint it. Big mistake if you don't.

Make sure EVERY light on the boat is LED.
You do want underwater transom lights.

Have them install an extra rigging tube on each side of the boat from the front of the engine room to the middle of the cabin. As a matter of fact, have them install two on the port, and one on the starboard. This would be for your stereo install. You will have easy and unobstructed access from front to back with your own tubes for stereo signal. The extra tube on the port side will be for power from your engine room to your cabin where your amps/capacitors/extra batteries will be.

The less chrome/stainless you put on the boat, the less polishing you have to do. Powdercoat/paint/anodize everything.
Ditto!

And Lip-Ship!

I think he would be pretty safe if Hunter did the paint also.

Save yourself 40k and get some Konrads or Imco drives. 6's on 700's seem like a bad idea unless you are upgrading to bigger power down the road or not great at chopping the sticks. Good luck with whatever you decide.

Not that I have ANY problem with putting 6's on, but why aren't you going with the NXT's on your 700's? They run the same props.

I'd put the custom cockpit carpet in, with the extra foam pad underneath. It makes all the difference when you're barefooted & on a longer run, as well as for your passengers.

I also would not put the docking lights on. They don't help as much as you'd think, and look weird on the bow.

Personally, I wouldn't do the billet package either, but that's just me. It's really heavy, & I think having the aluminum painted to match your paintjob looks alot more custom & detailed than the billet pieces do.

I'd also put an aluminum swim platform on it, painted to match as well.

Have fun!

If someone turns on the docking light while under way a sure way to get pulled over by the man and also very dangerous to oncoming traffic.

Led nav lights with a auto extend stern pole

NXT drives and Lip Ship addition would be great

Nix Them

I see alot of requests for LipShip Edition Cigs

Whats the difference in a LipShip edition and any other boat that comes out of the factory?

Other than the obvious stitching in the seats and pillows...etc.

I've always looked at LipShip Edition boats the same way I look at a sports car, that's been enhanced by one of the various tuners out there like Saleen, Callaway, or Hennessey.

Mansory for example (http://www.mansory.com/), will take a Veyron, Bentley, Ferrari, etc, and go a few steps further with the cars appearance, etc, than what it came like. Yes, you can have the various manufacturers that build those cars, do more exotic setups. It's usually the tuners though, that go the extra mile to make the vehicle more unique than what people are used to seeing.
