    Ha!

    Wear a bibb, Newman!

    :)

    But if you throw a few bucks towards a payment - you can drool all over it.

    LOL

    Did you get a bimini top? I really like the way mine is integrated into the tower.

    Did you get the wakeboard racks? If you didn't, you're not going to like the price your dealer quotes to add them. I was quoted over $900 each! I think I may have just found an aftermarket option.

    Yes on the bimini and the racks. They (as well as the carpet) just aren't installed/pictured. Emailed with the dealer today, we are still on schedule for a Saturday delivery! I apologize in advance for spamming photos on this thread when the time comes. Ha!

    That's great. If you don't mind, can you take some close up pictures of where the racks mount? That might help me make sure the ones I'm looking at will fit.

    Just got word that the stereo install is happening *now*, the racks and windshield latch are en route and should arrive tomorrow, the boat is going out on a local lake on Friday (it's never been on water!), and will be winterized before hitting the road on Saturday!

    Opps! Just pee'd my pants. Just a little.

    That's what Kitt from Knight Rider would look like as a boat.

    Ha!

    Don, you are a *NUT*!

    It was kinda crazy today, and a little sad. But the sad only lasted, I don't know, four minutes?

    LOL

    With all the hustle bustle, very little times for pictures before it was in the storage unit and getting dark.

    All I can say at this point is...

    *I love her!
    *No regrets!

    BUT...

    *She's a big ol' FAT HOG!
    *I had a "What the hell did I get myself into!?!?" moment when trying to back into my storage unit!

    Nice! It looks like you don't have to fold your tower down to get it into your storage building. That's convenient.

    Hey 2xsl!

    Here are the pics of the swivel racks you asked for!

    They got a little "buggy" on the drive up... :)

    Thanks for the pictures! Those are definitely some nice looking racks. Do you think a kneeboard would even fit in the upper fork? Looks like it might just barely?

    I may need to call my dealer and see if he can give me a better price. I'd much rather have the factory ones, but if a kneeboard won't work that makes them a no-go for me.
