OK...You got my attention.
Though every 14 days might kill me to see the progress, but It might be worth the wait.
Looking goooooood so far!

What a great idea! I love seeing all the photos of projects boats (Too Old did some great work on his boat and with a camera).
I think it will be really cool to see a brand new boat being rigged up for the first time! Like any work of art, I'm sure starting with a blank canvas is not as easy as it would seem.

No its a pleasure setup. It will sport merc 575s with standoff boxes and XR sportmaster drives, big stereo. lots of anodizing and lazer engraving.

Tres,
I know when you rig a boat you do it differently than the factory. Maybe you can point out as you go the differences and special touches you add! What does AXG3 stand for? Will you be taking this boat to Lake X ?

JUst to make you guys happy I will post weekly .To answer Brads question, The rigging we do is alot more detailed, every screw head is polished, the adels will be anodized, We are very concerned with weight, so we rig using all the lightest components, keeping the boat as close to the CG as the boat was designed to run on, so location of rigging become important. We put alot into set up, this boat will be at the lake with close to 3 days of testing and set up so our customer get the fastest and best handling vessel
