I would love to see your work. Did you paint your own boat?

900hp, ASD8-16, Rolla Props, 110mph WOT.

I love this paint job and colors. Want the paint from the rub rail up and not all of the way accross. Most of the deck will stay white. The back of boat and hatchs mostly red.

The facility sounds great. The biggest problem I have is tow the big boat. I need permits and that cost me $450.00 to tow to the NYPR. The tow took us 20hrs one way. That would be my biggest problem.

I forgot the prop size. I think 18x29 with a 1:1.33 reduction Rolla 4 blade.

I need permits for IL, IN, OHio, Penn., NJ. It was about $40-50 per state each way. Wide load permit tolls are almost triple on the turnpikes.

Any pics?
