Thank you! I've got Viper quoting some upholstery options. Either repair three seats or the whole boat. If doing the boat there are a lot of options, I'd like to use a more modern style. I'm leaning towards repairing the three seats this winter, putting off the rest a few years.

Other things: need a lift w canopy, cover, tower, bimini, new radio is needed, updated lighting for sunset cruises, dual battery, update dashboard.

Did you post pics of you boat?

Here is the other boat in CT, I think this is a good deal, just not close enough to me. He has a gray original interior. 250 hours on this boat,

ill throw a few pics in my album.
yeah i want to update my dash as well, but i kinda like the look of the vintage gauges so im not sure if ill change those. if i do however ill go with white faced ones.

what would the benefit of the dual battery give you?
i was on the fence about a tower but after seeing the pic of that boat with the tower, i think it changed my mind and i want one now. btw thats EXACTLY how i want my interior just with blue piping. thanks for sharing that pic!!!

That us a nice boat, with new seats you'll be all set! I assume your engine ran well?

Dual battery is nice if someone leaves the radio on and battery gets to low to start engine. Or small leak keeps bilge pump running until I can get boat out of the lake! Really need a boat lift, found some water had leaked into the boat in last 4 days, adding that to the fix-it list.

I'm going to keep my seats at home when she goes for shrink wrap, hope to get a quote to see about re-covering them this winter. I'm not going to do the whole boat this year. Pontoon carpet project is taking up the garage space.

thanks, yeah the interior is the bad part. boat runs great and hauls *** on the water.
so i am def pleased.
my project is recovering the seats like the boat in that link you posted, i love the smooth simple look. i wouldnt mind finding someone to repaint the blue strip on the side of the boat too.
other than that she is solid.

just fyi i got a quote from jim for 1600 for the whole set!!
