Nothing worse than an inferior boat towing you in, the shame of it.
The Toon pulling the Bu looked like it had been sunk but I guess it beats paddling back to the launch.

Pulled the TX registration off and now I am ready for my Domed Numbers WA registration.

Note: I did that yesterday.

Heat gun, plastic razor blade and 3M spray adhesive remover was amazing!

2008 XStar Reupholstery and Bottom Paint

Living in South Florida with the boat in my water slip at my home is fun and all, but the maintenance is long hours and intense labor. After realizing my waterline on the bottom paint wasn't high enough, i had barnacles starting to grow on my gel coat. Raised the waterline on the bottom paint 2 inches and decided to finally get my seats reupholstered as well, summer should be quite fun this year. Photos of the work below.

ALSO, if anyone knows of a good steering wheel replacement for the 2008 Mastercraft XStar SS let me know.

I see home defense in the boat as well. What kind of pest are you dealing with?

Those pictures made me cringe. Good luck.
