Boat looks great, would like to see a side veiw of the boat, from what I see of it, it's very pretty. It's your boat but, I would leave the 35 off as well.

First of all I want to thank all of you for your opinions and comments. I was a little curious how the "35" would look on them too, but with the interior becoming all white, I thought it would look better with some graphics on the scoops. We thought about doing the logo, but after reviewing it on the computer it ended up looking goofy. Dan LaBonte at GELPro did an amazing job matching the numbers to the way Fountain does theirs. I love the way it looks. I love it mainly because it makes it unique and makes it stand out. Being in a wheelchair, I don't usually like to standout, but I do anyway like a sore thumb. When it comes to being in my boat and loving my hobby, I don't mind sticking out. I really appreciate all of your opinions and I can see how some of you may think it's too much, but as many others said, I love it!

The scoops do look tall without the pad. I think it will look good once it is done. The paint looked great in person. What's next new motors.

KC,

Hopefully next winter I'll be able to. I'm adding the race fairing after the upholstery is done. I'm sure the upholstery will look great, I've heard they do great work.

Sydwayz,

Thanks for the compliment, there have been few of those.
