It does have that Fountain Poker Run look on the side / rear photo. Looking forward to additional photo's, and hearing how she runs.

Good Luck

P.S. Here are some pictures of an Aluminum boat taken this year at the Lake Cumberland poker run.
I want a beach towel like that!

Here is a fishing boat out in Montauk NY. My guess would be that it isn't stainless....

Electrolysis and strength of welds were my issues, if those are seemingly resolved.

Then Good Luck on thinking outside the box.

Your right!!! THANKS all of you for the support.I know I took on a real project and hope that the boat preforms well.Time will tell.If this thing doe's become a marketable product we can maybe produce 6 a year,there is only two guys doing all the work , it takes a real craftsman to work with aluminum with what we are trying to do and I am not worried about some one copying it ,Just can't duplicate fiberglass with metal and you would have to have one of these to even try and copy it,its a real trick as aluminum moves as you weld it and gets wavy ,its the welder and his knowledge of welding that allowes this to be done correctly. Thanks ROCKIT MAN

How do I live in a glass house? are you saying that myself or Outerlimits splashed something? I don't build boats, I am a contractor who has a passion for performance boats.

Outerlimits is as original as they get, so I don't think you are saying that they live in a glass house.

I respect the concept of the project, and admire the craftsmanship. I just recognized the bottom and step configuration and it raised some questions.

If it is truly unique then all the power to him.
