Even the trailer is awesome (manufacturer?) and I just noticed the reflection of the dang ramp letters in the gel coat :superman:

----Thanks to Smidgen for the pics and thanks to all for the congrats. I was stunned as ACBS, as we know, is primarily a woody based club. They told me that my boat is the 1st fiberglass boat to ever win a "best of show" at an ACBS get-together. Hopefully a big incentive for other glass guys to show their glass boats. I had strong competition too as there were several really beautiful wood boats as well as a couple of other great other fiberglass boats. One Chris-Craft v-drive X-boat out of Pittsburgh was particularly beautiful. You can see it in front of the F-14 Donzi.......Bill S

Nice one, I have sent some pics to Walt.
Looks like the Suburban is back up and running. Do any sweet burnouts?

----Unfortunatly, that's an earlier picture at the end of last season. No Subby yet, Jeff. Damn it!!! They have done a start-up and it sounds very healthy. Working out some header problems still.....Bill S
