160 views so far and nobody knows lol
Here is what I know he (Rusty) cashed a check for over ten grand down payment for a 21 tunnel HULL and has not produced a boat yet!
I have dealt with west coast builders and mfg for over 30 years sometimes slow but always good stuff ..................not this time!

I don't have any first hand knowledge but my friend has done business with him and I remember it always taking FOREVER.......I've stopped in with my friend to check on his projects and seen work getting done but I wouldn't say its the smoothest operation I have walked through.

How long have you been waiting so far?

Good luck with your build.

As stated above, there are several threads on RiverDave'sPlace about the issues there. There is one thread with the buyer paying lots of $$$'s and hasn't been able to take delivery for a year or more.
