It will be painted.should have some good pics soon as I have to move it into the paint booth.It's way too big in the shop for good pics so will take some when its outside.
I will in in So Cal with the boat this summer.I will be doing demo's for my son in law all over the west coast at all the poker runs in Calif,Havasu,texas and back to LOTO. Guess that will make me a Factory Rep !!!! Have a Helicopter and video guy making a demo cd to send out at the Desert Storm PokerRun at Havasu April28-29 . We want to be able to offer an allturnative boat to whats out there and make it custom for each buyer and at $75-100,000 less than what's out there in a comparable boat.these boats should last a person a life time and if they want a change in the boat it is easy to change the deck or cockpit.I am hoping this first boat will run over 100mph
with mild power , be dependable and as unbreakable as possible
and run the big water anywhere anytime . I know its a lot to ask but thats the goal. Thanks Wayne

I'm still trying to get my mind around the idea of tunable steps. That idea alone seems like some sort of holy grail and puts this thing in a class by itself. Very inspirational- can't wait for the next set of photos.
Best of luck!

Just wait until you see some of the ideas for cats that are in the minds of some brilliant people right now. If only the boating industry had the R&D money like that auto industry.

Great project, i cant wait to see the final product. Congrats on doing something different. I've always wondered why aluminum isnt used more often in these boats.

That would be a great marketing idea for the shows - no one would just walk by!
