It's official. I'm on the books. I'll be dropping off the boat on Feb 2nd. I'm really looking forward to Jim putting his touch on our boat after seeing the work he has done to the other boats on this site. Spoiler alert! There won't be another X-30 like it!!!

I dropped off my interior today for my 96 225 Maristar. Wow, they have some talented staff. The boats they had complete were amazing. The '86 Mastercraft looked better than new. I saw at least one X30, looked to be in the early stages if memory serves me correct.

Your skins look amazing in person! You won't be disappointed. Love the quilting you had done on the back seat and the observer seat.

BigBarney,

Is your boat at the shop or just the skins?

nickespi
02-02-2013, 08:52 PM
Haha! Dude, for real! The skins look sick. We were planning on the pearl and carbon combo also, but weren't 100% for sure. Your skins sold us on it. The piping was a nice touch too. Not sure how much is left to do on yours, but there was a decent stack of your stuff that was completed.

Where does this cushion go?
Are you installing he skins yourself?

This is definately my next upgrade to my '02 X-30.

02-03-2013, 11:38 AM
Waiting for quotes from upholstery shops for stapling them back on. May do it my self....
The quilted section with the x30 logo is going on the observers seat back. The bigger quilted is the rear bench with the Mastercraft logo.

black piping? Appreciate the compliments. Yea they should be about half way done with mine but to be honest looks like they are a lil ahead of schedule. Was worried about timing and the season

nickespi
02-04-2013, 09:49 AM
There is black piping between the pearl material and the carbon material. There's another name that Jim used for it, but I can't recall it right now. Zoom in on you pic and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Ah didn't even think to look for it. Yea I was hoping that would look ok. Can't wait for that to burn my backside this summer. Still hoping this interior isn't going to cool us but o well

nickespi
02-04-2013, 10:08 AM
We are worried about the heat also. Jim said that the carbon material doesn't heat up as much as regular marine vinyl. I guess we will see. That's the price you pay to have an amazing looking interior.

BigBarney
02-04-2013, 10:28 AM
"BigBarney,

Is your boat at the shop or just the skins?"

Nick - My boat is there. Purple (Iris) X30. Getting new skins, carpet, and some gelcoat repair.

yea he told me the same thing as far as the other material. All the dark colors in the boat aren't the CF material but instead the other new material. Guess we will both see. I'm praying for no 3rd degree burns

nickespi
02-04-2013, 03:20 PM
Yeah, that's what I meant. Not the carbon look material, but the other material that is carbon colored doesn't get as hot because of the material. He also said that the pearl colored carbon fiber looking material doesn't get at hot because it has texture...
