Just got my Skater 28 skater back fro Mark Morris at Visual Imagination for paint. Thanks Mark for the excellent work. Thanks Double Rigged for the windshield contact with Carmen at Aero Marine (Thanks Carmen, perfect fit!) and Rayzor for boat lift set-up and your 28 for inspiration! Just need to " put it back together.

It is a 2013, purchased in August of '13. I just got it wet and took it apart to get painted this winter. I switched the steering from Capilano helm to Char Lynn valve and Verado power steering with Zeiger Marine tilt steering this winter. Also added Fusion radio and Garmin chart plotter. Installed an Aero Marine windshield kit along with the paint from Visual Imagination. Now I have to break it in and learn to drive properly (3.5 hours only)! I did get to 101 this fall with my bride (she wouldn't tolerate over 50 MPH in my Fourwinns/Donzi 19!) so I think that I am on the right path with this boat and wife!
