I've loved it since you posted the pics from the boat show.. Great set up Brian

bendow 09-20-2010 11:50 AM

are those RGB LED's or just red? I saw a guy who had RGB led's wired into his amp somehow and the LED's were flashing all different colors to the beat of the music...pretty cool. Killer boat BTW

factorykitted 09-20-2010 11:56 AM

I decided againt RGB as the boat it as RED as can be. If the boat were a more nuetral color i would done the RGB route. Im sure everyone would agree that green,blue or purple etc against a red boat wouldnt look right.

Grant wouldn't :)

You know I love this boat! For the high res shoot run some LED's up the champagne bucket and drop a couple bottles of Nuevo in there. It looks killer.

I knew that was coming. If the boat was black, white or charcoal - sure. But for me it just didnt make sense.

you_da_man 09-20-2010 4:48 PM

I've hit up that website over a year ago and it still not up to speed with any products.

mendo247 09-20-2010 6:30 PM

looks great! love the red leds

882001 09-20-2010 6:33 PM

that website is awful, i heard a x45 in austin he did, it looked good is all i can say

ilikebeaverandboats 09-20-2010 7:00 PM

I dig it. looks pretty sweet! what made you go with the white transom LEDs vs red ones??

gti2lo 09-20-2010 7:14 PM

Impressive LED work!

Yeah the website isn't anything too impressive....its really there for his contact info. The install speaks for itself.

bendow 09-21-2010 7:41 AM

can you tell me more about the fogger? Just curious how that got managed. Don't they take up a lot of power? Do you have vents running through the boat for the fog?

I saw a boat at devils cove lake travis that had a fogger. I was like "holy $4!t that boats on fire!!!" It took a second to realize it was a fogger.

UNvisible 09-21-2010 8:40 AM

if you saw a boat on devils cove with a fogger it was probably brian's. The fog machine uses a 1000w power inverter, and a single vent (2.5" ? feed)

Most likely my boat. 1000W power invertor and massive fog machine. Right now I am running one single vent - works well. My last Wake Setter ran 5 vents - all 4 gunnels and under the dash. The single vent dumps a **** ton more than the 5 vent set up. I will likely add one more vent up front near the heater over the winter.

Push button switch to the left of the bottom voltage meter controls the machine.

murphy_smith 09-21-2010 1:43 PM

Does the fogging substance leave any residue on the boat?

factorykitted 09-21-2010 1:47 PM

nope

mattgettel 09-21-2010 1:52 PM

damn that is clean. never get rid of that boat!

ilikebeaverandboats 09-21-2010 4:10 PM

this might be a stupid question, but is that like a wine cooler sticking up in the middle?

david_e_m 09-21-2010 4:44 PM

As good as the pictures look I'll bet it doesn't compare to seeing it up close in person. And, there is so much work behind the scenes in that type of system that you don't get to see.

It's a champagne bucket. The Bu's come with a table there, he just converted it into a more practical implement :)

david_e_m 09-22-2010 11:56 AM

How many guesses are we allowed?

3 strikes and you owe me a woofer

Sorry, I don't want to play anymore.

factorykitted 09-22-2010 7:28 PM

I heard in n out is opening up a shop in Dallas...seriously

david_e_m 09-22-2010 7:30 PM

Brian,
Its a matter of risk versus reward.
So how many all nighters?

David

nautique830 09-22-2010 9:17 PM

Brian that looks awesome man! curious what voltage meters are those?

skyski1 09-22-2010 11:25 PM

I measure tasks in beers. So Brian, how many beers?

factorykitted 09-23-2010 4:38 AM

Stinger gauges.

sick! We have them in AZ but not where I am for school....all summer it was lake and then in n out. their burgers are so good.


that build was probably what, 12 kegs on the beer difficulty scale!?

Matt 09-23-2010 11:48 AM

You guys are raising the bar... I'm gonna have to start over from scratch to compete with that... Great job I'm impressed

summerobsession 09-24-2010 8:01 AM

I was going to say that this was a perfect install.
I mean seriously you have light show, lasers, awesome sound, fog, champagne bucket (my favorite addition by the way) etc. etc. What could possibly be missing?

Then I noticed there was no provision for a brass pole. FAIL!!!!!
Put one up front in the playpen and you will own the worlds most perfect boat!

factorykitted 09-24-2010 8:16 AM

sorry but brass pole = fail IMO

thx for the compliments!

summerobsession 09-24-2010 8:21 AM

I'm just bustin on ya, but you have to admit you have everything a quality strip joint would have...minus the pole.

The fog machine on a boat is sweet! Way to think outside the box!

AaronATX 09-24-2010 10:07 AM

WOW!!! i gotta go to devils cove more often!!!! if i see your boat on the lake, i might swim after you trying to get on the boat. consider this a preemptive apology if that ever happens.

jonyb 09-26-2010 9:56 AM

Nice work!

Really? This is the only boat ive seen where a brass pole would be fitting.

factorykitted 09-27-2010 7:47 AM

not my style, i actually use this boat to ride several times a week. my favorite thing about the boat is that is so over the top yet during the day time it nearly looks unmodified

radikal 09-27-2010 8:39 PM

Honestly its the sweatest boat i saw, mine is pretty the same, except the mod and its a VLX, looolll after thinking only the color are the same !!! hahaha

No honestly its pretty nice, but my only question is with all those mods do you even have a place of storage to put at least a towel in there ??

Ahhh and just to let you know its NUVO not NUEVO but anyway this thing is pretty disgusting, really too sweet tasting for me IMO, yep good quality with French spakling champagne and French Vodka i think but still not a good taste, it could be a Jet Set drink for the stars in the moment i think its more like a publicity than other thing.

I will def go with a Crystal or a Krug Champagne over a Nuvo in that bucket, with that boat you need to step up with quality drinks !!! :)

I have LED's in my cooler and on a night cruise a guest brought a bottle of Nuvo...it looked killer all lit up.

Oh and its Cristal not Crystal which would light up nicely but Krug would not nor would Dom due to their dark bottles.

radikal 09-28-2010 8:19 PM

Your right Hate my bad on that one i didnt take the time to check twice on my bottles chillin in my cellar.

Your also right on the Dark bottle, for the Krug i was more talking about the taste than something else because this Champagne is a charm. :)

NIce and in my opinion they're the ones spelling it wrong. You're right about Nuvo, its by no means a champagne. I'm a Dom man 1993 specifically, unfortunately I'm not recession proof and had to settle for 2000 the last few times I've had it. Being perfectly honest though I do like the taste of Nuvo.
