So does that mean that you are happy with it so far?

Yes, I am happy with the boat (but more importantly my Father is happy, it is his boat), just more work to be done. He had Will Smith build a new engine cover, had the gages calibrated and had new faces put on by Livorsi, installed a new rub rail with stainless insert, and the new interior was/is being built last week or this week. It is all coming together nicely (reconfiguring the trailer took some time).

Only things left to do are to rebuild the engines, install the MerCruiser motor-mounts, replace the hydraulic lines for the external steering, cut-out the air-intakes in the engine cover air scoops, and then figure out what graphic/decals will be designed/purchased and put on the boat (standard Phantom decals or something designed).

It is all coming together slowly but surely. A long answer to a simple question.

I am thinking about new graphics as well.........but I do kind of like the simple Phantom graphics.

Your boat looks sharp with the Phantom logo. I am interested in what Ryan Beckley could come up with, and what the cost might be versus going with the Phantom graphics that have been used previously on other boats.

That was the old interior. Last picture, old engine cover. Gives you idea of the "before picture."
