Nice work. Anybody that frequents Hardee's and drinks Mt. Dew can't be all bad. B)

MR. "boatcrazy," Charlie that is, is truly a first class kind of guy. He went and had a set of the decals made for me, shipped them in a very secure and well packaged envelope, then told me how much to send him. He is a stand-up and hand shake kind of guy. I actually love dealing this way, old school way of doing business, that is the way I was brought up.
This reminds me in dealing in the past with Jennings, Mike and Gil.

I could go on and on, but you get the point. Charlie, BIG THANKS to you. If there is anything I can ever help you with up here in Michigan, just let me know. And also beyond Charlie, if there is anything I can help any of you with up here in the cold tundra, drop me a line.

This site is the best. Great people, all passionate about aluminum boats.

By the way Charlie, the check is truly in the mail this morning.
Thanks my friend,
StevieB

Charlie,
Thanks for offering these up for sale! I just sent you a private message. By the way, what is the closest paint color to the original gator Yellow Frame and Red Wheels?

Thanks,
StevieB
