Default 28 Skater Refresh

I'm working on hull number 81. It's a solid boat that doesnt seem to have suffered any damage over the years, I started this thread to show the progress. Boat has been stripped and is headed to Richy's Custom paint in Miami. Richy is deleting the rubrail and giving it a complete custom paint job that will continue down the dash and over the console. Dash will be all electronic through garmin and vessel view 7 with custom painted dash panels etc. Interior is at uphlostry now, will keep posting pictures of the progress. Power is low hour 300x, will most likely go with 300xs next year. Thanks for looking, i'm really looking forward to its completion, I have always wanted a 28.

I believe so as long as they are smartcraft motors which they are. If someone can confirm this I would really appreciate it!!
