Saw a few pic's of models this guy made on Facebook of guy's boats and decided to pull the trigger. There used to be a guy on the show Dream Car Garage named Tom that would test drive a car and he always said "Do i need a car like this...No "Do i want a car like this...Yes.

Probably only have a few more years left in me for tempting fate, nice to have that reminder on the shelf.

How detailed can the guy get on the paint job? That black with the name is pretty simple, but can he do pinstriping and multiple colors? I'd love to get my father a little replica of his SK boat from back in the day as a nice gift.

Oops, I didn't see your other post with that red, white and blue boat with the yellow. I guess he can get that detailed. I wonder if that makes it more expensive?

There was a guy that had a booth at the BillyB boat show last year. Shit was super cool and even the paint/gel schemes matched damn near to a T.

@Bolton models

All I have of my father's SK race boat is a few really old pictures, thankfully a couple in color. Obviously I couldn't expect you to replicate something not seen in the pictures but if you are familiar with the hulls of the era (either Aquacraft or Mandella or RaysonCraft) maybe you can get close basing it off something you've already done?

Also, how does your pricing work?

Finally, do you also do trailers and tow vehicles? I'd have to find out some details on the trailer since no pictures exist but I'm sure it was a wood trailer of the era. I don't know what they towed the boat with, but I can find out and see if I can get some specifics on color of the vehicle.

Thanks!
