My cover is the stock cover that came with the boat... Its just been kept clean and washed often... Plus spending most of its life in a garage helps keep the cover looking new.
I think they are about $699 new from MC...

It's a "Quality Assurance" sticker.
It has lines for "By" and "Date", but they are blank. The ink probably wore off.

The stickers were applied after the boat was water tested and winterized and after Quality Control did their inspection authorizing it for shipment. Washing, waxing, the water and the sun will wear away the Sharpie writing on the stickers. Clear vinyl decal material over the sticker will protect it and has protected mine for 18 years. It was normal for the dealer to remove them from the boat prior to delivery when the boat was prepped and include them with your paperwork when the boat was sold. I asked my dealer not to remove them for obvious reasons.

Shep,

I just read through this thread for the first time. Great job on your boat. (But you already know that.)

And thanks for sharing the whole process with us.

Got the trailer stripped down last weekend. Ready to roll down to the shop (as soon as I find one) for sandblasting and painting.

Another shot. Remember earlier when I thanked Mastercraft for using stainless bolts? I'm taking it back . Actually, most of bolts were stainless, just not all of them.
I called one shop in Pensacola (about 100 miles away), and the guy estimated it would cost me about $1,000 for them to finish the disassembly, sandblast to clean metal, powdercoat (base coat and top coat) and then reassemble the trailer and repack the bearings also while he's at it. Sound reasonable to you?
