Starting a year or two ago you could order the WTT boats in your own color choice--no standard colors like years past. First you could get either the white/red or red/white but now you can order anything IIRC. Wonder if that will continue.

Only 4.5 years until a 50th boat though.........

I can't wait to see one. Looks like my dealer will have one next month. My biggest concern at this point is the drivers seat. I have heard over and over again that the seat hasn't been finalized. But in the most recent pictures it is still the flat seat with no bolstering.

The way I and most people drive these direct drives that seems a little dangerous in my opinion.

I have to believe they will nail the driver's seat. Given that they are making it recline, it seems to be a priority to get it right.

For that new boat - I am sure the seat will be just right.

I heard they are leaving the drivers seat as is, supposed to cut down on power turns.

I can live without powerturns. But tight lake's with little setup sometimes you don't have a choice but to make tight turns and make sure your passengers are hanging on.

These guy's are a lot smarter and have a lot more experience building tournament boats than I, so I will give them the benefit of the doubt. At least until I have a chance to really drive one.

No TT designation? I assume they are still offering the promotion?
