Hey Dennis. We have lots of ideas for the graphics. Everything from mild to wild. We are even considering the original Kid Apache scheme. We have all summer to figure that out. Anyway, here are some updated pics taken today.

Here is a step that they installed at the front of the cockpit to help gain access to the bow. They modified it to fit in this spot and then painted it to match.

Here is the dash. We are still waiting for the new compasses to arrive from Ritchie, then those big holes in the top of the dash will be filled.

I am not 100% sold on the white steering wheel. We needed a replacement due to the different hub and dash assembly, so we ordered white. We figured that it was stupid to order a red or yellow wheel this year, only to replace it after the summer when we reupholster the cockpit. Tres says that the white wheel is not bad when you are looking at the whole picture because the whole boat is white. In this picture though, the white wheel looks way out of place. We'll see what it looks like when we see the whole boat.

The new Myco is finished and ready to go under the boat. Hats of to them again. Not only is the trailer completed on time, but it looks great! Here it is.

Here are the water tanks and the wash down pump. There are hose connections on both sides of the trailer for easy access.

This is the last picture for now. Here are the boxes. There are a pair of 8' boxes and a pair of 4' boxes for plenty of storage.

LEOPAJM : The more I look at it, the more I think that the white wheel will have to go on the shelf for the summer. I also agree about the interior. I think that the red interior is going to be really hot. That is why we want to change it. If we have a good summer season, we are planning to get rid of the red interior when we paint the boat this coming winter. Then, if we go with a white interior as planned, the white wheel will look fine. In the mean time, I may have to come up with something. I was hoping that the white wheel would grow on me, but it hasn't yet. I'll have to see what I can do.
