So, thought to update you fine people:

1 - WMW says they are installing the electrical lines. They should be done by the end of the week and it will either ship then, or beginning of next week ;) That means, if it takes a week to get here, then we will get it installed, on "schedule" on July 27th.

2 - Found a Grady White club out of Texas... finally. I spoke to Grady today and the nice woman, Anne Marie, emailed, and copied me, the person running the Texas group right now. We have since passed a few emails back and forth and I am excited to see there is a group that already exists ;)

Will update with pictures when the top arrives heh.

So close. WMW called and they needed to know the color of the storage bag for the top.

I was going to go with Navy blue....obvious reasons heh.. but decided to go with off-white that matches the top. Evidently, they have a fabric guy that makes them to fit.

Close!

lol.. so true. Sent them a thank you gift for the hard work and details. They emailed again today and lights etc and such should be done end of this week, as planned.

Will be interesting to see what the shipping transit time looks like. Gotta plan to be home when it arrives so I can offload it with the tractor.

Been a s.. not "slow"... busy. but no "boat" news.

Ordered all new keys, those came in.

New GW floating keychain inc.. heh. I need 2, but feel guilty asking them for a 2nd one.. lol...the ones on ebay are like 15 bucks. May buy one there.

The top.. oh yea.. you do not care about keys.. right *wink*

The top ships Thursday.. yep.. two days!

They state it takes between 3-5 days to arrive, so we will be installed on the 27th.

Jerry from WMW Marine states, "All you have to do is add electricity"...well.. and a boat.. heh.. so, look for pictures and a video soon!

I sent Jerry and his crew a care package for taking care of me... BBQ from Texas... a lot of it.. heh

Heh, 600 just for the crate. Looks like all I have to do is cut the hole for the electrical wires into the boat and seal it . They did say I have to remove the hand rails. Wish I had done that when the boat had the other fiberglass work done. Now I will have to figure out how to seal those holes.
