      Has anyone built one or know where I could buy a prop display stand? I figure if I have 400+ wrapped up in a back up prop I am at least going to have it out in my office to look at!

      Ok that's super helpful!

      So you're saying, no matter what, I'm not getting the most out of the speakers because of the amps. So I can wire the 500/2 to the woofer after making a proper enclosure. Buy the Syn-DX2.3HP to power the towers. Buy the Syn-DX4 for the interior Fosgate speakers. If down the road, I'm not happy with the Icon-8's and upgrade to 4 10" HLCDs, will the Syn-DX2.3 still be enough or will I have to again upgrade that? 

      I know good amps are never a bad buy, thinking of upgrading just the amps first and the sub enclosure and seeing how that works. If it's still lacking, then do the speakers next summer or nexttime another sale rolls around...

      After having Boatmates under our '02 and '03 team boats and an Extreme under my '01, I can 100% say this is bad advice.  The Extreme does a much better job of centering the boat, has a folding tongue that takes less garage space, has integrated prop cage rollers, carries the boat lower and between the fenders, has much nicer boat guides, and has a much better method of carrying the spare.  That and it looks better.

      Boatmate makes a fine product, but I couldn't possibly be happier with my Extreme.  I'd consider it a plus to have one of those under a boat I was considering.

      On the Orange, I'm not crazy about it, but I don't hate it either.  The FXi is a unicorn, as I'm sure you know based on your boat history.  They're neat.

      Guess it is personal preference.  No way i would want that v block that they use under the bow instead of full length bow bunks. 

      Boatmates have prop cage rollers, and a folding tongue.  And there is no way i want my spare under the boat instead of on the tongue.

      I think the exterior looks very nice.  Question is, what does the interior look like?  Not sure i could personally deal with orange cushions. 

      The trailer would be a negative point to me, as it looks like an extreme rather than a boatmate.

      I’m pretty sure @The Hulk‘s dream feature is a motion activated snack dispenser...

      ... like this one, only imagine Cheetos in there instead of ear plugs.
