    :big_smile: Just got back from the SeaArk dealer in NC. Ordered me a 2472 v-pro, loaded with goodies: 150hp e-tech, 9.8 kicker, forward windshield, 40 gal livewell, 6in jackplate, 30 gal belly tank, spray-in interior and shadow grass exterior, etc. :big_smile::big_smile::big_smile:. Now I just have to wait the 2-3 months for it to come in:sad2:. Will post pic ASAP.

    Any suggestions on boat names??

    I was thinkin' "Thanks Honey" :smile2:

    The rear deck is 48 from the transom. It has dual alaskan consoles with windshields that will be set all the way forward against the back of the front deck. Should give me about 8 1/2-9 foot of open floor space from the back of the captains chairs to the front of the rear deck.

    Sounds like a sweet rig, can't wait to see it.
    A wait like that would drive me crazy.

    Congrats on the new boat. Sounds like you are going to have a dream cat boat when it comes in. The wait would kill me. Be sure to post pics when you can.:big_smile: What dealer in NC did you use?

    I used A.K. Mccallum in Fayetteville. I sent the build sheet for this boat to 3 other Seaark dealers, one never responded, one said I couldn't do it, and one wanted way too much. The place in NC is the only one who actually listened to me. I spent plenty of time on the phone with "Steve" from Seaark, asking question. This guy is great. Sent me engineer drawings of the boat and consoles, answered all my questions, and agreed to ship the boat with all the wiring left long for the custom console install. Its nice to actually see some good customer service anymore.

    You'll never be on your death bed counting your money, but you might be wishing you had bought yourself that new boat and went fishing.

    Good move!!! :wink:
