    Dealer called yesterday and my boat is in!!! Went today to look at it, but not for the inspection/walkthrough. I just had to see it. It was just recently unwrapped and still very dusty. The motor had been put on and it was in the warehouse and dark, so pictures aren't good. But couldn't wait to post some!

    Here's what my boat has:

    SPX Fastback - 25SSRFBXPDN
    250 HP Yamaha
    Power Steering
    Extended Aft Deck
    ESP with Center fuel tank
    In floor storage
    Seagrass Slate
    4 Step SS Lader
    Recliner Upgrade R Series
    Ski Pylon
    Dual Battery
    Kicker Upgrade with s speaker
    Kicker Sub and Amp Upgrade
    Black with No Accent
    Blackout Package
    Interior Driftwood and Sandstone accent

    That’s a kick butt boat for sure. What a beauty!!! Excited for you and the summer you are about to have on it.

    Awesome ! I see a great boating season ahead of you. My dealer knew of a local business that made registration numbers in the Bennington style. I had him put them on the boat before I took delivery, they look great.

    Sweet ride!!! How big is the lounger privacy curtain when opened? That’s the first one I recall seeing on here with that option.

    Thanks! I'm going to order the raised dome letters once I get the registration numbers.

    I didn't order that option. I have the center toon storage and larger/center gas tank. But I'm not sure what those two floor entry doors are at the back of the boat. The person showing me the boat wasn't the salesperson or shop manager (they weren't there at the time).

    The smaller one will just be the connections for your fuel tank, the larger one will probably have your bilge pump access and other connections.

    Thanks! Kind of thought that one was the bilge pump housing. Wasn't sure about the other one.

    Thanks everyone! I actually pick it up next Tuesday at my choice. First day I can take off to do it and get in on the water. For now, I am going to be renting a slip on the Ohio River at Harrod's Landing, but eventually it will be on Nolin Lake in Kentucky close to Leitchfield. We have a lot there and plan to build a retirement cabin shortly. I didn't want to wait until then to be able to boat regularly, so we decided to be river rats for a little while. Never had a boat on the river, so a little "apprehensive" but sure it will be fine. Thanks again for the feedback and I'll post better pictures once it is cleaned up and headed to the water. Steve
