Had only one owner when we bought it 4 years ago, so most of the original upkeep goes to him, but I have done alot of cosmetic work, but just to keep it looking good, not to change the original. No carpet (don't like it after two years) seats have been redone, but with original color and design. Will need to redo floor in 5 or more years, getting spongy. But runs like a champ, (do in part to the fine folks at Boatered) and handles beautifully. Nothing like a deep V bow. Cuts thru the water like butter. Lots of new parts, but mainly because I upgraded. My dream boat in so many ways. Put a high end stereo in the glove box to hide, and 4 speakers, two in the front under the dash facing to the stern with the bow runner cavern as bass boomers (INCREDIBLE!) and two under the back to back seats also toward the stern! Added a classic hand crank spotlight as well. Not in this picture. Always covered and always on the trailer when not in the water for the day.

Neat boat!

Take a lesson from your dog. No matter what life brings you kick some grass over that sh*t and move on.
