Does the factory send pictures or are you guys there?  I can’t make it to TN but would love to get some pics of my new 23 MXZ when it’s built Starting on 12/6...

Talk to your dealer.  The factory will send you build pictures.

That battery management wiring looks like a disaster!  Surprised they can go from what we see here to an organized and well laid out finished product.

Really surprised to see that much of a rat's nest, don't know how they clean that up after the fact without re-doing it.  Maybe a well placed cover hides it all!

I think a lot of that goes to the other side by the helm.  It looks like a fuse panel in one of them.  I'm sure they all get stretched out and run cleanly.  They just have it all piled up so they can work around them.

 

**EDIT - Well, I take that back.  Looks like a distro block.

Well She's home! This by far has been the best one yet as far as fit and Finish from the factory! I found one very minor gel coat chip and that might have been form shipping! But other then that, I could not be more pleased with the build! Its now Off to Gatorstep for some custom triple Soft grip flooring and then a bath in Ceramic coat pro. I will share more of the interior when it's all done!

Very nice! Window tint is perfect. Also good call with Graphite badging looks sharp on black!

It seems new windshields are frameless? Is that upgrade or just standard design now in 2020?

They have been frameless for some years now. They changed the shape a bit for 2020.

They aren’t frameless, the window is glued to a frame just seen from inside and very thin around edge of glass.

Ok... They haven't been the "traditional" framed windshield for some time. The integrated frame gives the appearance that they are frameless.

so are those vents or drains they're running out the bow fittings?  Interesting place to put those but good use of that space I suppose.  Keeps the profile of the boat looking cleaner without it being festooned with through-hull fittings.

 Vents and drains. I didn’t even notice them at first. I agree, good job with using that space.

I like how they’re out of the way but I constantly look over the side to see if things are full or draining.
