I hoped to get a few more runs in this year but got the boat winterized Saturday. Drained, filled with antifreeze, oil & filter change, fuel treated, fogged and transmission fluid changed. All for $278.15 with tax by a small north Texas boat shop run by two great guys. Love small towns with big hearts!

Didn't end up with the finish on the welds I wanted and the welds are not as neatly done as a ND from the factory. Ended up being 1470mm off the floor of the boat. I dropped the rails a little to line up with the windshield better, and kept the front of the upper tower straight instead curved like ND has theirs. Wayne stuffed up the length of the legs on the back of the upper tower but this meant the break was a bit higher, so when I fold it down it is only 6" higher than the windshield. Thanks for trying to find the tube for me Cloaked. Have Fun PS. that is me shadow man!
The lines of your tower look great. Perfect for that boat! Your earlier posts of the front view also shows how nice it fits the boat. Nice job.

Are you mounting anything up top?

Luv the hills in the background...you're fortunate your daughter enjoys the boat... my daughter 18 this week could give a crap...maybe it's the 18 thing...ya think?

Nice boat... great that you and your daughter did something MC together...

thanks! The hills/mountains are actually in the opposite direction!

She's 11 and sometimes likes to go skiing and sometimes not.

My 14 year old likes to ski when the weather is nice, and so far, my 16 year old is always up for a ski!

Something cool that we share together....for sure! I hope to make it last as long as possible!! Dang, college in 1.5 years.

No, I am not in to the big speaker thing. I have two sets of Polk speakers in the boat and that suffices to me. I wanted to keep the tower down for strength and looks. I am mounting my bimini under it so that if you do stand up you will hit the bimini with your head not the tower . I have to run the wires for the tower light and spin up some nylon for where the rope sits. Wayne didn't include this either and I have given up on him. Thanks for all the compliments fellas, makes it almost seem worthwhile.

Sounds like we don't like this Wayne guy anymore.

Gave the ole' girl an exterior bath, filled the tank, changed the oil and the tranny fluid, pulled off the platform (for a later project) and put it in the garage not to be taken back out until 2013.

Sad day for sure.
