Nort, no problem.. Maybe you should get a large plate of nachos and some ice cream while you are at it...

The tabs are from Eddie Marine, as is most of the harware on the boat.. I do have a steering wheel that I bought from Trick MArine, but it's not on the boat yet...

The gel coated graphics really stand out, and it really has that extra shine.

Michael, it took them about 1 week to wire the gauge panels, and about another week for them to complete the wiring on the inside of the boat.. I think they used approximately 947 zip ties in the process..

Just a minor point here, Lavey's new boat is a 32, not a 30. The one they have at the show has twin 600 Mercs. They also make a 29 and a 2750 as well as a 26, a 24, and a 21. They do race off-shore and placed 2nd overall in the Factory 1(in a 2750) class at Key West. They will be racing this year in both Factory 1 and a canopy'd class(something "Lite's)

Sorry about the mistake on the Lavey length.

They said five 600 Mercs had been built, and they had two of them.

The engine compartment had nice rigging. I asked them why they did not paint or gel coat the engine compartment since that seems to be the trend now, and they said they did not want to hide up any stress cracking.

The gel coat graphics were really nice, and the deck looked like a piece of glass.

Steamin, your boat is beautiful. Looks great. Congratulations, I know you have been very patient during the build. Looks like you will have your boat about 2-3 weeks before I get mine.

It looks fantastic, and I am sure it will give good reliability with that kind of installation care.

I really like the blue transom. That looks so good!

Congratulations, and enjoy your new machine.
