    Amazing work!.  What did you end up deciding on the engines, planning on painting or not?

    Tony, I've had the pleasure of you working on one of my boats before. I said it then and I will say it again, you Sir are a true CRAFTSMAN! Thank you for keeping the meaning of that word alive and well.

    Thank you very much, I really appreciate the kind words!

    Yes, we are painting the engines. 

    But now ladies and gentlemen, I present the most beautiful Contender in the fleet! John at Castaway Customs absolutely CRUSHED my ideas about Seadek. I cant express how happy I am with thier work.





    We even did the bottom of all the hatches.







    First major seatrial after break in was a major success....

    We left my dock in jax 9am. We legitimately had 8 stop and pee breaks, and still cleared Flagler Pier at 10:30.

    By noon we were close to Canaveral. Pins down, 3 foot seas, she eats so good, I was amazed. We saw 3 Ray's all day, ashamed we burned 200 gallons with no cobes to show. She ran like an absolute dream though,



    The audio has arrived, and we have begun installing the components. She will have (4) 12's, (8) 8s, and 4 huge amplifiers, its going to sound unreal. All JL Audio's new light up rgb series.

    At first I didn't think I'd like the color...saw you rolling into Ft. George Sunday....everyone around us was pointing and talking. The pics don't do it justice. Beautiful rig!!!

    Tony, saw you up at Ft. George on Saturday. Man that rig is even nicer looking in person. I was rafted up with a bunch of friends and everyone of them was fixated on your boat. Made sure they knew the name of your business in case they need electrical/electronics work done!
