    Looks nice. You'll love the ride of a winger. And that 532 should push it nicely. Keep us updated on the progress.

    There was a custom snap-on cover that left holes around the boat about a foot apart. Holes from bimini brackets and several holes for lights. On the inside there were holes that appeared to be for a different set of seats. So we just patched everything unneeded. Took awhile, but its looking better and better as more coats of paint are sprayed.

    UPDATE:

    Put a few more coats of industrial white on the winger. Planning on one more coat, and then lay the blue pearl on. Top it off with some clear and start rigging. The temperatures have been dipping below 0, and the "heated" garage is around 50 degrees so we can only spray one coat a day. The curing process is extremely slow. On to the pics.........











    The scoop....



    And some "candy"




    The bucket seats went to the upholstery guy yesterday. Bright white with electric blue trim. Also finally found someone with blue rub rail! Motor is at the shop getting worked on. Were getting there!

    Let us know what you think.
