Thanks!!! We are working on the interior now... replacing the rear bench with a sundeck / storage locker... getting close to done! We are re-doing that wrinkled cushion there... it was our first one!

Cool. Welcome. I had an 84 for 13 years. Loved it. Just upgraded to a 2007 197. That 83 is nice looking. One thing you'll notice here is that we all like pictures!!

cool! I had a twin to that one ... '83 Black/gray that I had for ~23-24 years (pic attached) ... how long have you had it? I sold mine in summer '09 after purchasing my current '04 X2.

Bought it last June and fell in love... it is a super solid ride to say the least... We plan on a few more years with it before we make the big leap into a boat payment :)

I like the black and grey. My first MC was a 79 S&S with the same colors.

Such a sexy boat I will die in mine, and when I sink it I am sure will still be floating.

I like that you have modified your rear seat area. It seems a lot of people get caught up on making everything OEM. I can appreciate OEM, but I want something I can use, and has a little of me in it. Besides, it's a ski boat, nobody ever sits in the rear seat.
