Beautiful boat! Love the blue...and love those wind deflectors on the windshield. I assume they came with the boat or I would ask you where you got them. When you get a chance could you post a closer photo of those please. Do you think they are home made?

Nice ride you have there!

It is hard to beat the dark blue color in my book. If you get a water richochet off the outdrive due to the open triangular drive shower, you might want to do what I tried which is gluing a piece of custom cut plastic to the underside of the shower. Congratulations! Bill

Nice looking, +3 on the color. I ended up with red but always loved the blue. Late 90's? , stock?

Many thanks for all the positive replies and the warm welcome , would be good to have contact with other owners in the area

The wind deflectors were fitted by the previous owner who had them made up at a local plexiglass place. They do make an amazing difference - will take a closer up pic and post for anyone interested

Will check out the water richochet off the outdrive advice

It is a 2000 boat , stock 454 motor, no trailer so in dry stack at marina, as far as I can tell it is stock in most respects . I bought it from a private seller here in Jax who took great care of the boat.

Yeah I just bought a 94 and am in dire need of a set of reflectors. We should get a batch made by somebody. Being I am in boat builders row(Sarasota) might be easy to find out. Taylor-Made is down the road as well.

Nice boat. Hope you enjoy it very much. Lots of people on here to help with advice and direction when you and if you need assistance.

Congrats on your purchase. I enjoyed mine last year. Wish I had the blue hull sides on mine. Can't wait for Spring

As a couple of you have asked I have taken a few more pics of the wind shields ( apologies in advance for the crappy BB quality ). They were fitted by the previous owner and he had them made up locally here in Jax. Having taken the boat out a couple of times now the difference they make is quite extraordinary.
