Could be...I'm surprised no one said anything about my "senseless jab" towards Japanese motorcycles. ;)

The difference is that people arent frequenting this board to buy "japanese motorcycles".  Your "senseless jab" had no bearing on what people are on this board for.

Based on the wood cabinet and wooden lip around the shell, I'd have to say it's an '07 or '08 Arctic  :o
LOL  :D  
I'm sure I saw one like that on the back lot.  It's coffee time so I'll take the camera and go have a look...  

Back.  Can't find camera cable so can't upload photos.  

One on our log has cabinet looks similar.  Model is "Ocean Mirage".  Has a Hercules pump.  Production date 1992, so it's before there even was an Arctic Spas.

Like you would know a rebranded, reconfigured machine...You made a Japanese bike look and sound like a Harley! (remember, I had to take in the fumes from that monster for many miles as it threw mud on my BMW) ;) 8-)


This does not look like a Harley to me and the only reason you were sucking fumes is that your BMW is too slow (only becuase of the load put on the bike by the rider) to get around my 110HP monster ;D




See you in Montana in May

Your beard looked like mine BEFORE the wait.

I'm having trouble with photobucket - it refuses to show the edited version and there are items in the photo that I don't want to show.

But since you can't wait, here's the interior:

At least I know for sure you have more gray hair on your head than I do.... ;)

I wouldn't worry about items you don't want to show...no one can say anything about how a spa that old was made as long as you changed it. 8-)

So that's an old Arctic? Never seen one....

Well, in your picture in SpaRetailer you have a hat to cut down the glare.   :D   You can check my hairdo here: http://www.suite101.com/profile.cfm/graywriter.  Not much grey...

The old spa is sitting on top of an R&D project, and it's that one I wanted to crop out.  The 1992 Ocean Mirage is not our product, but the cabinet resembles the one that started the thread.

Nobody your age should have that much dark hair on their head!

The spa in the photo was built by Blue Falls; that model sold across Western Canada for years. It resembles the square-corner wooden cabinet shown in the photo that opened the thread but may not have anything else in common.

This unit was built two years before the present owners bought Blue Falls and designed the Arctic Spa, but it does show the perimeter insulation and uninsulated shell used in the Arctics of today.  

So kudos to Stuart for recognizing this as a fore-runner to the Arctic Spa.
