Last weekend we took the opportunity to go on a tour of the Skiers Choice factory. Let me tell you, it was about 25 hours round-trip, and worth every minute! We were in the factory for about an hour, and it was really a great experiance. Didn't get to see our boat getting built, as the spray date is for tomorrow, but we learned a ton!

I have the pictures hosted on my server, and use php tags around each image url.

Excellent shots. Nice composition, well exposed and in focus.

Your images are better than some of the "pro" photographers that worked for me when I managed the photo lab at U.S. Subase/New London.

Wanna come down and cover the upcoming Tampa Jamboree?

Those pics were actually taken by my dad, who is a bit of a photo buff. He shoots with a Nikon D70, not sure what lens he had on. The hosted images are not very crisp, as I used MSPaint to resize, lol.

We'd love to come down for that, unfortunately I don't think our schedules will allow; as soon as our boat gets here I plan to be on it as much as possible!

WOW! It's going to be a while before I get to take that tour. Thanks so much for taking the time to put all these up.

Sweet pictures. Interesting to see that they install the radio and stuff before the boat is assembled. I would hate the job of climbing in the little cabins to install stuff. (that's what I've been doing myself for 2 weeks!)

Oh, and look at pixresizer. Nice free program for batch image resizing. It's fast and easy.

I've got more on my camera, just have to upload and such.

RE: the stereo install, its pretty cool how they do it. The whole boat is built in 2 halves, and one of the very last steps is combiming the 2.

Awesome pics. Did you happen to see a Pacific Blue and black XLV in production? Mine was completed this beginning of this week, so it was probably there.

Once again, great photos!
