Thanks for the compliments guys it means a lot coming from a group of enthusiasts! Sammy the carbon fiber material jim has at viper is incredible! I did the seats in a previous boat I restored with material I purchased locally and it didn't compare at all to what him uses. U will be more than happy with the materials he uses! Mikey I can say the same about the carpet he uses it is very dense and the pile is great! It's very superior quality to what the shops around me use or what I've put in my boats in the past.thanks again guys I am very pleased with the results to this point and after all the work I've done i hope to get quite a few seasons out of it. The job from viper was 3050.00 and he had to actually build the observers seat and side panels because they were missing. They are composite material. He also had to replace all the foam.they also powder coated several parts and did some Gelcoat repair all in that price. I will definitely be using viper on my future projects!!

^agreed! His prices are super low. I got a quote for $4500 for my X-30 from a local guy just for seats. Jim's quote was lower, included Sea-Dek flooring, and a custom walk-thru. Well worth the drive for me.

Wow, that's an amazing price. When I'm ready I may need to make a trek south. A 10 hour drive to Tennessee for me, but it looks like it's worth it.

Ricford it was 4.5 for me (not near as long as your trip would be) but it was worth every mile!

I agree. I towed my PS190 from Philadelphia and I feel it was worth every penny. Great work Jim!

So with Viper your only option is to bring in the boat? I have an email into them already.

I cut the bottoms out of the coming pads on my 87 as well (which I no longer own). It cleared up a lot of floor space because I could fit a wakeboard under each side. When I traded the boat in at a dealer, it took him a second to figure out why there was so much room on each side of the motor box. He liked the idea.

That is a VERY nice interior. Make sure all the kids bring along red Kool-Aid and freeze pops!

They accept shipped interior components. The guy that does the work (it's not Jim J.) prefers the boat present to fit the pieces in the boat and see that they fit properly when placed into position.

I have seen interior pieces boxed, strapped to a pallet, and shipped. Some here have done just that and have been pleased with the results as well as not having to make the drive. Considering the cost of fuel, wear and tear on the vehicle, and what my time is worth, if I lived much more than 4 hours out, I'd consider shipping. Packing onto a pallet allows the trucking company to load as well as Viper's place to handle the pallet... with a fork lift.
