Default Big thanks to Grafikworx and Lip Ship!!!!!

I'd like to say a few words about two of the best folks in the performance boat world. Harold from Grafikworx and Phil from LipShip.

Three weeks ago, I hauled down a 30 Lip Ship edition TS Mystique that needed some attention. We looked at what needed to be done and finally decided that the boat should go back to Miami to its creators for the repairs.

I had emailed Grafikworx some pictures of what we wanted done and he gave me a rough estimate based on my pics. When I had arrived, Harold pointed out some other areas that should be taken care of including the engine hatch. It was obvious that Harold takes a lot of pride in his work and wanted to fix this thing the right way and suggested we call Phil at Lip Ship for the hatch repair.

Two weeks before the boat show is a busy time at Lip Ship but Phil squeezed us into his busy schedule and had Mauricio rebuild the hatch for us so the boat would be done in time to tow it home after the boat show.

When we arrived back to Miami I was amazed at the Grafikworx finished product.(and the short period of time that it took to complete) You could not tell where the work was done. Beautiful work guys! The boat looks like new!

In a business loaded with crooks, it's refreshing to do business with real genuine people like Harold and Phil. You guys are the best in your field!

Thanks,

Kurt

The motors are going together as we speak. They are 575SCI's with a roller cam upgrade. The cams are similar to the 500EFI cam. I could never understand why Merc installed a .559 lift/110lsa flat tappet cam on this motor.

Drives are Sportmasters/ITS

It's all clean now! We were pretty lucky on the ride home. We didn't run into snow until the Mass border. I spent 3 hrs yesterday washing the boat and trailer and it's back inside the heated shop.

That thing will haul the mail.

The usual results of dealing with two of the best, Harlod and Phil's.
