John.... I am speechless my brother. I think I need to go clean my shorts now :unsure: . I absolutely love the color choices you went with :wub: . I think it would look great with a pin stripe to break the two colors. I love your paint work. Ok You know I have to ask what the two colors you used were. Keep up the great work...

Just got a GREAT visual of it slicing through the water, kicking up a 20 foot high rooster tail (while a hottie who was sunbathing on the deck now hangs on for dear life).

Hey!!! Your model, my visual !!!!!

Stunning as always John. Just stunning Bro.

I only have one word of advice. Don't put your most attention grabbing paint job EVER on a build that is the most attention grabbing vessel to grace the waves.

I bet your other builds are jealous..........
