Boat bling

Well a year ago when we bought Airswift I didn't know what a cowl vent or dorade box was but thanks to the good folks on TF I learned. I asked at that time because I thought the manufacturer had cheaped out with the pvc plastic, flexible cowl vents and wanted to upgrade. Well a whole bunch of other projects took precedent but I came back to it and found some on the internet and just installed them. I like boat bling (shiny stuff). How about you?? Any bling you want to show off? Here's the old and the new.

Put a bowl of spaghetti in the middle and you'll cause quite the stir when people mistake your boat for The Flying Spaghetti Monster in all His Noodley grandness trying to disguise Himself as a boat

Nice! But I'd like a larger drainage hole in case those cowls get a big "gulp."

I hear ya, but in these waters we don't get too many big gulps but they do have a thumb screw inside and can be turned backwards if it gets really sloppy otherwise they just feed us some air.

I like an understated bow and not a lot of "bling." (Anyone who knows me or has been on my boat knew this was coming.)

Walt, you embarrass most all of us with your boat's shiny stainless steel and spotless exterior (and no doubt the interior is on the same level.)

This is as close as I can come to bling for now. An oldie but hopefully a goodie. Now, where is that Brasso?

I saw no greasy spots on the Coot

Re-inspection(and Italian food) in Pittsburgh is definitely in order

Looking good there, guys! Bling is good.

This is the best I could do.

Scroll up past Mark's woodwork to Bligh's post with all the gorgeous girls, and check out the Avatar and Bligh's son.

That father son talk may be sooner than you think.
