Looks fantastic!

I also found two chrome MasterCrafts for the trailer to replace the drip molded. Hopefully this will tie everything together...

Cam, curious to know how the that style graphics would look on a white boat. You still have your white 197 correct?

Yup.

I am curious too.

It is actually a debate right now between the 2008-2010 graphics or the graphics savaiusini put on his.

I've seen my exact boat in the 2008 version and it looks good. I am concerned out savaiusini version because of my black boot stripe and then the red stripes (mine will be grey or black). I think the two sets of stripes might be overkill.

I've got all winter to contemplate it!

There would have to be a substantial border around the chrome to separate it from the white and not blend in to it. In bright sunlight I suspect it would wash out, but be killer in the low light. Sunset pics would be stunning.

Well, here is a 2011 white WTT.

At least you can see how the chrome will look on white. Can you peel that boot stripe off? Maybe just leave it all white minus the graphics?

]Yeah, no go on pulling the black boot out... it is in the gel.

It;s tough trying to figure it out, as I kind of like the way it looks now, just need a change. Right now, everything matches and it's nice and understated... just the way I like things.

That sure is a great looking boat. Didn't your boat have a mini tower? Anyway, my favorite part about that era graphics is the Prostar logo. I love that style for whatever reason.

I wonder if you can find chrome drip molds for the MC logo and the Prostar 197 logo. With some chrome stars might look good.

Still have the tower. I pop it off and on from time to time.

I always have intentions to shoot some stills with the GoPro from the water, but I always forget. For now, here's a dock shot.

Frankly, I wouldn't change a thing about your boat, Cam. But if I were going to, I'd find out who makes the drip molded stripes for the WTT kits and have them do a one off for you in black. That would look best on your hull, IMO. Basically the 2011 kit in black instead of red. BTW, I have the part numbers if you need.
