Lol...I know exactly how you feel!

Great work overall on this one!

Just went through this again, very impressive. I'm glad someone can still find a boat they can buy, spend some decent money and time on it, and still not have too much into it that it doesn't make sense. Great work.

I'm thinking I'd like to see some of those blue led's ring lights on cupholders, etc. Please add to your winter list!

I'm all over it if your buying!
Seriously though. Those things are quite pricey in my book and don't make sense for us. We just are not out on the water after dark enough. If they were cheap... no question.

Thanks for the complements.
