Its funny, back in the day I would shake my head at those who put black gel on a boat. Now, I kick myself for not adding some to my gel!

Awesome gel combo on this deck, its going to look stunning sitting in the water! :thumbsup

It's a black metallic. Looks awesome when it's all polished out.

Looks sharp, add some bling in the dash, capping it or a painted rub rail would be a nice touch too.

You buy this thing, and John and I will be your boat bitches. (By boat bitch, I mean we will drink your beer while you drive us around).

count me in for this plan! Have $10.00 for gas as well :)

Very nice looking yes and I sure the hull is solid and performs well- - not so sure I like the positioning of the speakers.

A speaker inserted into the top of the foot well seems like a dubious place for it.
As does the one next to the throttle.

Having not gotten speaker placement quite right in either my own 2 boats- I notice this more than the average guy.

As a guy in the market for a 22-26ft deck- I like this one a bunch though at least from these picts.

Not sure why the vertical storage door forward of the passenger needs a "frame" around it though- I prefer the cleaner look of no frame.

I want to take a really close look at this boat. Any construction info?

Vac Bagged? Foam boat? Balsa boat? Liner boat?

Real curious..

So its a foam core Vinylester boat.

I take it by omission it's not vac bagged?

From my recollection you have a choice of vacuumed bagged.
"Choice" of vacuum bagging implies that as a rule its not done.

- also code for the price goes up if I ask.

Im guessing the "floor models" probably aren't optioned that way?

From what I've seen (and I'll check) the inventory models (like mine) are DECKED out minus the big stereo. The list on mine was LONGGG. And when talking to thane he said I got every option as almost always does the inventory built ones.

They offer Standard layup, race lay-up, kevlar carbon fiber or vacuum bag lamination technology.

Did they ever build a 26 with these features? or any deck boat with these features that here on RDP I can look at?

Id be interested to see the kevlar setup and to know what the weight diff is between a "standard layup" and a kevlar vac bag setup on this 26.

I don't believe they've done any of the new deck boats in anything but standard, there are some older 27's that are.

Yeah there isn't any point really IMO to do anything other than standard or vac bagged on decks.

Vac bag would be the easy choice on the order sheet. This is a 24 ft boat with a 2ft step.

If you could shave 3-400LB off the rig with a Kevlar layup that would be interesting. Id trade that off for color in the gel at this stage.

Ive had "pretty" boats for a long time and Im contemplating all white for this rig- I'm tired of repairing gelcoat/paint.

I need to get into some showrooms and look around. Id say this rig deserves a face to face.
