    All an all, 500 hours on the boat and she’s running strong. Now to buy a new tandem trailer for it “someday”; probably next summer.
    Yes, you do have my '09! You posted it for sale a while ago. I replied to the thread, but didn't hear anything. Let me know if you decide to sell, please! Glad to see it being used and taken care of.

    And thanks for the compliments, guys.

    This was the first x-14 I wanted to buy, ha! John has good taste. The zero-off pucks do seem to be deteriorating, glad to know it happens to others as well! What type of carpet replacement t are you going with?

    Yup. Got about 800 hours and going strong. Not quite as shiny as she once was but one day we'll fix that.
    Skiid earlier this week 😁

    I got mine new, (and ran several questions past John E during the transaction! Thanks again). It has been great for us and still love every minute on it!

    That's what I figured you meant. Post it up there.

    That’s a bummer! Had we been a couple months earlier, he had my cover back when he was adding side skirts, and could have used it to make new template it. Sorry to hear!

    My vote would be for Erb as well. His problem is that he does not "pattern" a boat. I asked him to make two when he had Dave's boat last spring, he said it didn't work that way. He needs the boat to make the cover. He will be making a cover for me this December, hopefully re-skin of my bimini as well. We had Erb make a cover for a 21' i/o back in the 90's and did a nice job and it was $325. He would make covers and heat tubes for our dozers as well. He's been around but may not be the most "stylish".

    Agreed. I went back and forth with him a few times. Referred him to you and Kourtney but I guess he couldn't find it.

    At one point he thought he had it, but mentioned it was for a 2009, and I know he made one for a guy in WA that had a 2009 V-drive that sank. I mentioned that and he was back to saying he didn't have the right one.
