over memorial weekend there was a "pirate ship" epic at naci. did anyone else see it? it was black with "wood flooring" and wood decals on the front. thought it was pretty cool looking.

I saw it! It was sweet! I talked to the guys who had it, they were telling me about the paint job on it. Very nicely done. They also told me that it is going to be on the cover of some magazine.

That floor has got to be hot as hell even if there is water on it, then it has to be very slippery

sick looking tho, not so on the functionality of it tho
Old    Anthony Alvarado (wakeskywalker)      Join Date: Jan 2003       06-02-2007, 9:03 PM Reply   
The flooring is not actual wood its a fiber floor from armstrong. It has a texture to it and isn't slippery at all nor does it attract heat. I did a lot of research before Put my idea into action. Thanks to all of you for your uplifting comments.

Hey Anthoney do you find the 10's & 12"s cancel each other out? I know in my boat the 10's cancel the 12 out, so next year I'm getting rid of the 10's! Right now cause I'm in northen climate i'm sticken with what Ive got so I can ride instead of messing with the stereo!

Smooth, are you sure you don't have the polarity on the 10's or 12's reversed? They shouldn't cancel each other out.
Old    smooth (smewth001)      Join Date: Oct 2004       06-03-2007, 1:11 AM Reply   
They should'nt be I've checked that out, but if I turn the gains turned down on the 10's the 12 pounds harder.

For the platform I would prefer the stock glass platform with wood inlay. That would stay with the black and woodgrain theme that looks cool.

To all that have posted comments thank you. I'm not done with all the mods, the swin step is also going to be wood grain like the floor. the tower has 20 6.5 coxals. The interior is going to redone to resemble the color theme of the boat. The subs rock I have the four tens in a sealed enclouser under the cock pit and the four 12's are in the bow. once again THANK YOU FOR THE UPLIFTING comments. Anthony

Anthony,
Great job!
After seeing several fiberglass boats with wood hull looks at the boat shows (usually cruisers), I was curious as to why no one had done it on a wake boat. Was the boat gelcoated in the mold with the wood grain? I bet after seeing your boat there is going to be a manufactor that goes after that same look.
Again... KUDO's

When you do ride? I've not yet seen your boat at BV, and would be down to check it out.

That is the sweetest boat I have ever seen. I am not a huge fan of the stub nose but the Skull and Cross bones on it is awesome. The burned in look of the letters ads a great touch.

I am curious if that is gel or a wrap of some kind?
Old    Dave Johnson (riverdave)      Join Date: May 2007       06-04-2007, 11:46 AM Reply   
Anthony, can you tell us more about the floor? What is it attached too? How is it secured? How well do you think it will hold up to water over the years etc?

As well, to echo some other questions, is the exterior of the boat, painted, vinyl, or was it actually gel'd in the mold?

The transom looks like real wood to me? Is that fiberglass that's been painted? What's with all the holes? I went to Epic's website and they mentioned installing speakers right there, is that to let the sound out? Or venting for the motor?

Definately a nice boat, and you should be proud for doing something different!

Def. SICK!!! Different and tasteful,

Personally I think it would be cool to see some mini cannon decals on the side too, or the fake doors so it looks like a pirate ship's side, lol. It would be pretty crazy to paint the tower to match as well!

Curious, is the bimini all black with a skull and cross bones, lol.

Love the graphics! I guess that is the one nice thing with all black boats... you can chage it up with some vinyl wraps.. and the black offers a great background!

I wanna see more pics! I wanna see some pics of the stereo!

How is the boat treating you? Some guys I know just bought an Epic and have less that a few hours on it... Going back to the shop for the 3rd time.. always a dead battery... and requires a new motor... Thats gotta suck!

Great looking boat! Is that a wrap.

What did you use for the floor?
Centurion used teak for the floor and engine cover in this package.

make the tower look like rigging of a pirate ship, and a teak plank.the tower speakers need to look like barrels of rum. where is the jolly roger flag?
