Oh man...2007 (not 08 MUX), Titan 3, awesome colors, power wedge, SS fenders and great wheels...I'd say you hit it out of the park. One of my potential dream boats for the future.

Welcome and congrats!

Congratulations and welcome!  You are going to love the boat.  You will also love TMC.  So much knowledge here and a fun place to spend non-boating time.

Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone, I learned a lot lurking here before posting because ya know, you can't make your first post without a photo!  Hopefully with 4 1/2 decades of boating (and other) experience, I can give some back.

Calgary, Alberta, Canada.  I see we have a few members from North of the 49th so that's great.  Guess I should update my location...

Great day on the water today with wife, son, daughter, brother-in-law, niece and nephew.  Just ducked a serious thundertorm, loaded in a crosswind but made it home in one piece.  Always a good result.

And...score!  Picked up a near-pristine 1235 for less than half the price of new tonight, so tomorrow that's going on along with a new swim pad cuz the old one's kinda hacked up.  More pics tomorrow, plus a couple of toys we picked up at the same time as the boat.

They're not so pretty up close, fair bit of peeling but they'll do for now.  Maybe I'll have them powder-coated in the future.

Beautiful boat and welcome!  Not an Illusion tower though but a Titan 3 as previously mentioned.  Enjoy it and post some pics of the interior!

Right you are about the tower.  So as requested, from the water test on day of purchase.  At the helm is Brad from the boat shop, I'm on the right:

She also badly needed a new swim pad...before/during/after shots.  Don't have one of the fully -cleaned platform because after 2 hours of elbow grease, mineral spirits and acetone to get there, I was too tired and pissed off to take one!
