Unfortunately I don't think you can even find one of those towers anymore.  Agree though.  Probably the best looking tower/boat combo ever.

I know.  Super unfortunate.  It is, IMO, the best looking boat / tower combo.

my ski fits neatly in the rear locker.

We get three skis in the locker of my RLX; longest is 67".  Throw the bumpers under the observer seat.

Nice! But yuck! 

What's the chrome doodad in front of the passenger side windscreen?

Yeah...you can see the extension cord hanging over the gunnel from the light I put in the motor box to keep from freezing.

i had to find 2-incandescent bulbs...not so easy to find in my house anymore.

The PO said he had 4 other ppl offer listing price with a non-refundable $5k deposit. I really don’t know why he decided to sell to me, but I’m happy he did!!

Just seeing your post. Congratulations on your sweet new ride !!

Looks so good! I love the way the TXi looks from the bow. So aggressive.

Definitely unique.  That Response logo just ahead of the windshield wasn't standard that year.  Nor was the black rub rail.  I dig it.

For some reason I think I remember 12’s coming with that though. That’s really digging in my memory though and I’m probably wrong :lol:

@braindamage I removed the big response decal on the sides of mine and really liked it naked better. Might be worth a thought!

Don't listen to @ahopkinsVTX  Normally, I prefer "understated" but I like the Response decal.

Third opinion: do what @mlange did with his 2012 and put the 2015-16 decals on.  That boat was a stunner!  :)

I will photoshop and see what looks best.  I kind of like the decal but one spot is coming loose

edit: naked pic.  Color isn't exact, but best I could do in 5 mins.

edit2: @Eagleboy99 Completely naked with no malibu decal

Which do you like better?

I like the outline letters actually.,  I'd be tempted to dump the MALIBU on the rear and move something up to the navy area if you have to have the brand.

I think I like it completely naked and put the registration numbers on the blue.

Agree about moving the registration to the blue.

If we're only removing and not adding/replacing, I'd go with @ahopkinsVTX recommendation. :thumbup:

I vote the response removed or left on. I think the Malibu needs to stay. BTW I took mine off to replace a decal as it was falling off and after I got it off I liked the look better. 

Also, the stripe below the rub rail wasn’t tall enough to get the registration numbers in it. I choose to order a set with colors that I could split the line. Was kinda tough to get the spacing perfect due to the curve of the hull.

I’d go without the Response, but with the Malibu.

Nice boat.
