Default VR 1 ready



I put the VR 1 in just before Memorial day weekend. Didn't get a chance to thourghly clean and wax as my Yukon had to go into the body shop. Poor baby sat on the lift, dirty and dull.

I pulled it out yesterday, washed,clayed,polishef and waxed it today. I am tired but happy. Will fill the gas tank and put it back im.

Looks great!!! I'm biased towards Velocities though.
Do you remember where you got the trailer box from? A model/part number by chance?

Thanks, Ryan. Yes I live on Chautauqua Lake in Western NY. The boat is on a Shore Station lift at the end of the dock and I have a full cover on the boat. It is on the lift now so will post a pic later.

Very nice. That's the optimum setup. Unfortunately, I wet slip mine. It beats trailering though. Usually pull it a few times over summer and clean. Full length covers are where it's at. You can tell who uses them. Sun is brutal.

psi, have the same box on mine. I'll get info for ya.

Hi, John, hope all is well with you.

We definitely are doing the Seneca Lake Battleship Run and thinking about doing Buffalo again. Buffalo is a great run but has gotten somewhat pricey. Not sure if I get $650 worth of fun out of it. I have run it many times but did not last year and may not this year. Not knocking it, they put on a great run just not sure if I want to spend that much.
