i spoke with the individual selling it. he indicated that this is the plug that they built (I thought they cnc'd one..) to be a running boat.
The guy (Martin) was very friendly but not positive on many of the smaller details. This company that is selling the project is tied to Thad's investor (What that means...?) They are apparently selling several items unspecified at this time. The hull has two small steps and no notch (By the pics).
If it's still around at boat show time, I'm gonna take a peak at it.

Over the phone, they'll take 50k. Post cured, foam cored epoxy hull.

If it ever gets finished, I'm wondering what an appropriate name would be... maybe Custer's Last Stand?

Does anyone know how much it would cost (approximately) to finish the hull and deck? Wild Guess? Who would be qualified to do a project like this?
