Top deck going on. Doesn't look like much with the mask and black.........until we pulled it off. Airbrush details done, the aluminum flake sure stands out in the sun.

I looked at that boat for Hiflier before he bought it. Had I known it was for sale right under my nose, I would have bought it.
The boat was in great shape, twin small blocks, 3 man bolster in the front. Original paint scheme was perfect. I have some pics somewhere that I took of the boat when I looked at it and if I get them scanned I will post. There was another one running around here (Boston) back in the late 80's early 90's called "Airmail" all red. Anyone know the whereabouts of that one?
I love the looks of these hulls.
Matt

If it runs basically you bought 15-20K worth of engine and boat for $5k so yes I would say you got a decent deal.
