Thank you Kamie! That's much better!
I'll try to add some more Pics when the electronics are all installed.
The waterline is turning brown from all of the cedar water we have here. Not alot of slimy growth since its on the trailer most of the time.....but a bottom paint similar to what Sal applied would be a nice touch. I used VC-17 this season on the sailboat....what's preferred on the whaler?

She looks great! Congratulations fellow Nantucket owner. I think you will find yourself daydreaming during the week of when you will take her out next.
Mine is bottompainted, as in the saltwater near me the growth gets rapid come midsummer. On your lake I would imagine you wouldn't need it? Are you slipping it? I was thinking that if all you get is a browness around the waterline you could get away spraying a bleach-like solution on it periodically?

Congratulations Steve! Great looking package you have there. You will be very please with the boat-motor combination.
Good luck and safe whalering,

Thanks for all of the replys.
The boat has been great......not really any complaints at all.....although all of the bright "Whaler Red" canvas & striping did take some getting used too. The dealer made that choice on the striping & sun top when he ordered the boat (as a spec) for the show in January. I ordered the cover for the console & leaning post, expecting the gray canvas Whaler describes in their brochure, & was surprised when more "red stuff" showed up. I'm used to it now, although I really do like the rich look of the dark blue. I took off the sun top due to the rattling of the metal framework when cruising at speed, & having to work around it as you move around the boat. Its been a trouble free boat, .....& I'm still working on the torque steer that I get when up on plane, until I trim the motor up a bit, & may also put a coat of bottom paint on.
