Just put a deposit on this girl. Owned many boats in the past, this is my first Grady. Always wanted one.

Here are some pics. F6CE2A81-19B2-487A-921D-2DED484CA4F7.jpeg1E6015B7-93F7-4BA9-8758-00981A94B9B4.jpeg9E271148-7017-4E11-8649-6FDF78A15954.jpeg

She looks great!! Guess you've had the year to get her dialed in.

Not quite, have a few more plans for winter layup like rod holders, washdown pump, plumb live wells, gelcoat repair, etc.

Just changed my VST filter, that was fun.

I can understand that. I've been the last 2 years since I bought mine, upgrading and changing out things that need attention along the way while still using it. After the second fuel tank replacement, I hope I'm on the downhill side of things. I'm sure I'll have small things here or there to do to further fine tune it to my liking, but hopefully the major stuff is done.

Nice rig. There is always something to do to them. Just stay ahead of it all and you'll be fine.
