Here's the last of the set, including the original design-a-boat view. We were going for a slightly subdued metalflake look that would pop out occasionally in the sun, and we're very pleased with how it turned out. The sunlight shows the gray better if you look at the picture of the boat just out of the mold a few pages ago.

You can see the design -a-boat was quite realistic and matches a cloudy day or indoor lighting. The one noticable change between the images is the darker BTS windshield on DAB -I like the look and may consider tinting the windshield slightly when I get the boat.

I'm not sure where our trailer is, but that is the complete boat. It is the stock '14 X-14V plus heater, ZFT4 tower, teak platform, high power stereo, boat cover, bimini, & pop-up cleats. I'll be adding another set of phender pro fender clips next summer.

The neighbours will still speak to us because we don't have tower speakers. The next owner of our boat, whenever we decide to sell, is free to do his own aftermarket stereo upgrades.

I went old school with the teak platform, where once again I will become one with sandpaper and starbrite teak oil. We went with gray seat cushions rather than the white on my current boat, and I think my wife secretly hopes I will be less anal about cleaning them as it won't show dirt as easily. And while I love the look of painted trailers, I went galvanized because I hate the look of a painted trailer gone rusty after a few years. I did not select galvanized wheels, but went with the black aluminum instead, to at least offset the drabness of the trailer.

Now I've only got 229 days until I pick up the boat! oh wait a minute... 229 days...that's a long time
