Yes the graphics are staying for at least a couple more seasons, no exterior work this time.

She's heading to Sanford, FL for an all new cockpit and 1/2 cabin, as for the engines they are getting some aluminum heads, cams, similar to the 509 that I built for the old 26.

Are you doing the Atco engine shop upgrade? My next 390 will be a sit down boat.

I'm looking at the Ateco kits, you can't beat the price for what you get. I would like to use different cams than they supply but the intakes and plenums on the 500's have limited flow and I want to stay with the EFI...............................enjoyed the sit down boat for 10 seasons, I miss the walk around and the cabin.

If you're refering to the bench seat bulkhead the answer is no, it lost a battle w/ a sawzall over the weekend, still itchy from the dust.
