Yeah, I am on the fence with wrapping or not. You really think it will be that bad?

We are in Love Bug season down here and they will eat the paint off your car. Some times you get lucky and some times they are so thick you literally can't see out of your window after a few minutes. I would seriously consider it.

Definitely wrap it. It's cheap insurance against bugs, rocks and grime. Make sure the hull sides are wrapped too and you'll be able to limit the potential for scuffs, etc.

Congrats on the boat, I know two professional captians who have Jupiters as tenders and they LOVE them. So given the cost of the boat (and I know what they cost) go ahead and wrap it. Like George said cheap insurance and peace of mind and less work getting her cleaned up and in the water.

surprised you guys have not asked for a picture yet. I'll share anyway to take the guessing out.

This is the previous owner with his dog. Boat is one owner, fresh water used, never painted bottom and just mint for a 2000. I have been looking for 2 years now and have passed up on many boats that I liked until I found this one. Only semi-issue is I wanted the blue hull, but that is something I can always do in the future. Cannot wait to see it in person this weekend.

Nice,nice. That is one of the great things about a quality built boat boat like a Jupiter is it holds its value. You just repower and off you go. There are a ton of boats the same year that aren't worth putting new motors on and end up in the dump. My opinion on hull color is white is right.

Man, can't you at least get a better model in your boat?

There are only a handful of center consoles worth getting into and Jupiter is high on that list. Sweet ride and relatively rare on LIS, which is very nice.

you are fine with anyone who can handle weight....you are under 10' wide. Uship would work - but be sure some douche doesn't pack it up with a half dozen motorcycles

I have a good friend that has many contacts in this industry and has shipped VERY large boats all over the world. His dad is a Marine surveyor too. I can give him a call if you still need more info. PM me if so.
