    Thanks everyone for posting your pictures. Some of the new boats look pretty nice.

    I realize folks are probably traveling today and tomorrow, but if anyone has any more pictures of the new Venture, please post when you get back and have time. The pictures posted so far are great.

    I'm surprised Rusty doesn't have a bottle of coconut water in his hands.

    I think they changed the parameters of the judging
    the 600 took "most unique" award and a 200 buck in Sea Ray gear certificate since it was NOT a 100% correct resto
    Bob Walsh's 1963 808 took the top prize at 300 certificate
    Bob's boat was what we in the car show area call a beautiful old survivor...unrestored and totally original
    Congrats Bob if you read this.
    but keep in mind...you bought yours...I BUILT mine :wink:

    and HELL YEAH I got to drive !!!!
    that boat it awesome. Smooth and quiet and very responsive on the throttle and steering
    I couldnt believe how that 51ft boat handled at above 40mph
    and the feeling of 1200hp of turbo deisel spooling up was unforgetable...thank again Rusty !!
    that is something I may never do again but will never forget the experience...like having a big smile all over inside and out

    Jim,

    I haven't seen Bob's boat that I remember, but I think all of us appreciate all of the work you put in yours. Congrats to both of you, and to Sea Ray for doing this for the owners.

    Jim,

    Congrats on your 600. I followed your restoration thread and she is gorgeous. Thanks for pictures as well. Just curious, judging by the speeds, fuel burns, and rpm,you may have accidentally flip flopped the vessel view pics between the 380 and 470.

    Shaun,

    There was a Denise from Knoxville customer service who sourced a new glove box panel surround for my 230 years ago. My boat was already out of production. However, she and her team were able to track down the old molds and supplied the parts as promised. I do not recall her last name, and I am not certain if this is the same person. However, thanks again SR & Denise for superior customer service.

    that is possible...honestly the most impressive boat for performance was the 280 sundeck ...had the 8.2 in it and when the throttle was stabbed at 30mph would set you back in the seat like a musclecar and went straight to 56mph
    That boat had my attention

    I didn't post the video where I decided to set the camcorder on my phone and toss it in the pool.
    was odd how a few beers make you do silly things with technology.
    the picture from the bottom was a bit blurry and the sound was...well.....like it was under water..
    but it recorded the entire event. :lol:
