Can you say multi-colored? It will all come together in the end after some paint and/or vinyl work.

That's the only boat I've seen with more deck to buff than my Formula.

Also, I vote for keep the white hull and teal logo and put the teal interior back in it.

Sounds like Tres is having to much fun with your boat and you may never get it back

Great, we'll need to go crush some waves in that big ol' bad boy. Can't wait.

The detailing work on the exterior of the boat and on the engines is finished. Needless to say, I am very impressed with the results. I will have some pics of the finished cockpit this coming week.

Will,

Did you have to change the transom Mounts and gimbles when you did the drysump conversion?

Tonto: Thank you. I can't wait to get down there again. We will be down there as soon as our drives are finished. We are just waiting on the word from Tres. I seriously doubt that it will be any time this week. I am thinking that it will be the later part of next week if everything goes well. We'll see. Tres has worked some miracles in the past, so you never know. I'll keep you posted.

WetKitty42: We do not have to change any of that because we are using the same uppers and just converting them to dry sump. The old lowers, however, will be removed and replaced with a new pair with the swept back skeg. As you know, these already contain the dry sump setup right from Mercury. With this combination, we get all of the benefits of the new dry sump drives, but at a fraction of the cost of a new pair.
