    Started to hook up the electronics. (The screens are not screwed in) I also put the new name on as well. Windows should be in this week. Getting close...

    Something that I'm really impressed with about this job: The progress has been nonstop! There has been no "languish" time what so ever. Very nice to see them go about their business until it is done. It isn't always like this, especially in this economy. This company conducts itself in a workman like manor. I like what I see. I wish they were closer to Maine!

    Beautiful boat, hope you are very tall. I could never see over the electronic boxes underway.

    Thank you, the electronics box is actually not that tall. I am 5-7 and I should have no issues seeing over the box under way

    Thanks for the thread enjoyed watching your project still would like to know if you feel comfortable what it cost and what types of engine and speed you have before and after she really turned out beautiful

    Atlantic Service finished the boat on Friday, so yesterday I was able to drive her home, From Far Rockaway to Lindenhurst NY. They also serviced the motor and new bottom paint so I should be all set for the up coming season. On the trip back I wanted to see how much speed I lost with the hard top and I was 2 knots faster, I hit 30 knots WOT. I'm extremely happy with the work that Atlantic Service did, and also they meet there deadline. Now I get to start working on the boat to set it up the way I want it. The last 4 photos are before and afters, it's not even the same boat any more.

    Wow! You made the right choice with the hardtop- it will extend your season. The shop did an amazing job making the proportions look like the factory model.

    Thats a 9 point canal radius turn here in N.Y. and even more fun when its blowing straight down the canal out of the south. And wait till the rest of the neighbors get their boats in, it gets even better.
    Looks like Silver Fish has it down pat.

    Yea my canel is tighte than others, the worst part when I came in yesterday the bow thruster wasn't working...

    I think it was a 15 point turn, and I had to learn quick how to spin the boat.

    We used wynne windows, I'm happy with them so far. I had diamond seaglaze before and don't see much of a difference.

    Started wiring new switches, new running lights, cabin lights, deck lights (all of the lights are color changing and dimming) and finished the electronics installation today.

    I have no clue, the boat was that color when I bought it. But I know the shop used an awlgrip paint that was close, but don't know the color.
