Here's mine. Got the new manifolds on yesterday getting closer all the time. Light is at the end of the tunnel. Except for about half a dozen minor glitches of course.

The "Silent Thunder Box" will be gone with a clean transom complete with new Stainless Marine tips.

Pictures are scanned and clean up when clicked on to make larger.

Great thread guys. Here is my under 30 stock power/drive boat. Reasonable cost for appearance and performance.

Here's ours. It's all we can comfortably afford and costed us less than it appears to "non-boaters"

I'd rather have 7 or 8 of these than a new one!!!

I have to admit, I get a little jealous when I see someone having a problem of where to spend their half-a-million in play money. I would hate to see new-comers to this sport discouraged because they can't afford the latest craze.

I put every spare nickel I have into it, thank god my wife supports it
Here's mine...

Couldn't have said it better myself!

This will be a great thread to follow. Remember- It's not 'yours' till you mess with it yourself!

Here's my wife and I having "above-average" fun! It's not about how much you spend... it's about how much non-boaters THINK you spent!

Just kidding, it's about how much you grin every time you are out on the water!
