Throw back is right. That's a beautiful combo there.

Great looking Rig... I was / am really considering a 76 truck and the 76 S&S just for kicks.
I really like it!

Nice looking rides. No tonneau cover for the GMC?

Looks Great LaRue! I applaud you for getting a white Tow Vehicle to match your Maristar. You must have really put some elbow grease in there. Did you use any special process or products?

The scheme looks great. I went with the captian America Look...! well that wasn't the plan, but...

One thing i did notice, is that your not running any Boat Tie Downs in the rear. I have used these, and feel they are plenty strong to keep the rear of the boat on the trailer.

Here are some from MasterCraft by Design

i used Adams Polishing products this year and the Porter Cable orbital.

Yea, i know i need to get tie downs. Currently there is nothing on the trailer for them to attach. In addition, the tie downs on the Maristar are very wide which makes it difficult to get a straight pull with a BoatBuckle. I will have to get to it this summer.

Do you have a photo of your tie down mounting set-up?
