Im thinking I may go south through Indianapolis on the way home. The 94 and the 80 around the lake and Chicago are torn to shit.
I've always taken 70 to 44 to 40 when traveling to LHC. There have been some pretty rough patches on that route as well.

Probably head that way around noon. I could use a good gtf out of dodge day and see something cool. The roads around Indy are pretty good. That shit around Chiraq resembles bombed out airfields

im not sure of where I’ll be. I believe we’re going to put the boat in the water at some point today.

Down 65 to Indy, to 70-44-40 sounds like a good idea

Well you definitely got me beat! I bet laying eyes on her the first time was pretty awesome. This is when this thread is about to really get good. So excited for you.

The trailer is smoking!

I have always been intrigued by articulating designs and I love the dual spare tires, matching wheels I would assume!!

Lots of movement today but still in Douglas till tomorrow. The Livorsi analog tachs weren't communicating with the vessel view. Took a bunch of calls to Mercury and Livorsi to figure out that Livorsi supplied the wrong leads. They had diodes on them and they aren't suppose to. That's why were were running it on the trailer. Got that handled. The engine hatches just came out of polishing, have not been on the boat yet. Those took some time. At around 8PM, we all decided to throw in the towel until the morning.

The fender holsters need installed, one guy coming in early, install them. Run two trucks to the lake, one pulling my boat on the shop trailer. Me pulling my tilt. Quick spin, swap trailers and head for home. Had a rather enjoyable day, wrenching a bit and learning my way around Fair Chase. Damn, she's a sexy girl.

Skater tilts are a real work of art. I'll get some pics of the boat tilted before I get on the road.

This has been an amazing thread, I can only imagine how pumped you are and what it was like when you first saw your new ride in person!

Intimidated, because its a Skater, my first, and Peter Hledin was just sitting there with a smile on his face watching me look it over. He knows.

After spending the day on, in and around, its completely exceeded all my expectations. The tilt needs to been looked at by folks too. They are every bit as much art as is the boat.

Incredible journey following this thread. The trailer looks like a masterpiece. After owning your old 25 Daytona I can only imagine the # of hours cleaning & polishing the trailer alone.
Congrats, very happy for your family
