    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    I really like the paint job on that !!!!

    Just curious though about the headers being so close to the rear deck area and messing up the paint and/or fiberglass?

    yeah, they did get the paint alil hot i called rewarder 1 day to order some headers for it and jim mentioned having a blem set of twisties for 200 off, so i snagged em up. they barely cleared the transom.

    think it looked better with my scheme on it, this is the 1st day getting it wet after i rebuilt it:

    yeah, it didn't like goin that slow i had that thing up over 110 a couple times just wasn't stable, skeered me alil. billy's tx20 is on rails over 110, i think i got used to that and when i'd jump over in the gullwing, it'd start chine walking sideways over 110 pretty spooky

    Isn't that the truth! Every year we all upgrade, spend more money and yet get to boat less cuz we've made these things so complicated that we wrench on em instead.

    I too liked the looks of it when you had it. Very nice.....john
