I watch a few Haulover Inlet videos and decided to share this one, but only for the first 20 seconds, the rest is just ‘filler’.

yeah they look great. They sent me spec sheets on them. One is right at 33 and the other is closer to 32.5 pitch now. They polished them up nice too.

Ol Sarge got back out to fix where I screwed up my boat name back in the summer when I mindlessly sprayed degreaser on the transom. I’m digging this version better. We went with better colors I think. He sprayed this on with an airbrush using our urethane paint, We’re going to clear over the name, then he’s going to airbrush some slight highlights around it the we’re going to scuff and clearcoat the whole transom. If somebody else ends up with the boat later it’s going to be a pain to change the name. 😂

Sorry guys we’ve been real busy at the shop and haven’t had time to work on the boat. Winston was finally able to get the transom cleared today. I hope to be able to work on it next weekend myself.
