I'm glad you did what you wanted.

Now, let's see some pics with the cover off and the boat on the water.

Whatever rocks your boat (pun intended) :biggrin:

Just don't scrape a dock. That would be the pits. But if you do, we want pics. :whistle:

Not my cup of tea, but glad you got what you wanted. If you were on the water near me, I would look at the boat and make assumptions about you, but you would win me over if I saw you acting responsibly on the water. Then I would see past the wrap and see another person who loves boating, and 'Bus in particular.

Congrats.

It looks better than I thought it would, is there any way you could leave the cover on :Tease3: , the black ties in better than the white imo. I assume you are putting your platform back on? It looks like a lot of the work back there will be covered up bicbw.

Is that a Toyota highlander you are towing with?

Your wrap really makes me want to pursue my wrap idea....

I like it, and I don't like it. To me any graphics design should compliment or accentuate the lines and design of the item it is on (car/boat/t-shirt). That design could be on a billboard, or a bumper sticker, or anything. At the same time, it's original, and that's pretty important to me, and actually in concept it's pretty slick. Again on the other hand, it also screams "pull me over". I would bet that the patrol boat will go out of their way to check you.

But now that you've gone down that road, are you thinking of any custom upholstery? Gotta do something to tie in the interior with the exterior, then it's a true custom machine. Even just replacing the center areas of a few key cushions, or adding some beading with the same colors, etc.

Looks like you got the results you were looking for--definitely one of a kind! Always look better once completed. Not my thing, but that's fine.

Congratulations on not only having it complete, but having the guts to do it in the first place. Can't wait to see pictures on the water. Kudos to you, sir.

:cheers:

As far as the Kluger, this is America and you'll get told you need a one-ton dually pickup to tow that boat. Our tow ratings on the same vehicles are significantly less (like half) than elsewhere in the world due to our sue-happy society. That's got to be pushing the limits of that vehicle's capability, though. Make sure the tanks are empty before heading out.

No, no, wasn't commenting on your use of the vehicle (though as jk13 points out, it'd be out of the norm in the us to use the highlander as a tow vehicle). Personally, one of my favorite things about vacationing out of country is seeing the cars and trucks that we don't have here in the US -- same goes for how others use the vehicles we DO have. Good on ya!

It looks better on the boat. I probably would have rocked something more edgy like this when I first graduated from school... Now that clients or possibly people I manage come out on my boat, we definitely have to keep it corporate.

BTW- watch your rub rails they get messed up very easy. I think I may just remove the vinyl from the rails on our boat.

Just the normal bimini modded to fit under the tower so that you get more coverage from the sun!! although you dont get as much head room its better for blocking sun and rain!

You think it looks weird? ha...

My thoughts exactly. As I said before it's not my thing but to each his own. I think it looks so much better on the boat than the pictures. And I'm with NDawg on the cover staying on. Too much contrast with the white. Enjoy your ride it looks bitchin !!!!

It looks way better on the boat and on the water than it did in the original pic. I have to ask though, does the blue writing say Wake?

That lowered bimini is the nicest looking I've seen on that tower as well. I wouldn't mind the ducking for that look if I could afford a newer boat. And of course the extra shade.
