tell ya what i looked it over pretty good and it was pretty stout. Still like i said pretty much just for inland lakes.
My biggest reservation is loosing laminate continuity and the inherent rigidity of the boat (think of it as a tube). it was beefed up pretty well though.

They needed that on certain Apaches to load/unload bales !
Could you imagine running down the bay or ocean and looking over at your wife or co-pilot and saying" Did you shut the door"... No I thought you did" Oh.. Chit.. You left the door open!! as all the bilge pumps are running..
Not getting a good visual on that plus.. You gotta be really small to get in and out..
I know my 260lb Azz isn't getting out of that trap door!!!
Real easy to throw out the anchor.
I remember when the original owner was selling it. He bought another boat while waiting for this one to get finished. He swore the door was not an issue in big seas.
I think it took a lot of effort for him to sell it to the current owner. I think he wanted over 200K for it when it was new.
Looks like it has a few cool features, like the teak floors.
