gravois builds a solid boat jeff , no bullsh*t. but he is expensive , but your getting quality welds and construction. he does a nice job of finishing them off too. if i were in the market and had the loot to buy i would go with gravois for aluminum. now , if you want a solid glass fish vessel , tell him to check out newton boats over in slidell ,there back in production. he builds alot of dive boats for south florida and some serious fishing vessels. you want boat's to fish ! than those would be top 2 picks in either build form , no fluff , fancy bells and whistles , just solid no fail construction to get you out and back- very safe . there the kind of company's you really don't hear about with advertising ,they do a little bit , but they are word of mouth for the most part. like i said , they are $$$$$$$. but , you r getting what you pay for and are built to customer specs...

Whatever you decide make sure they are using the correct alloy for saltwater and be sure to use plenty of anodes if its left in the water.
The boats I've seen are 1/4 inch bottoms with 3/16 topsides and they are absolutely indestructable. Tie it to a wooden dock with no fenders and dont worry about it. Rinse it off after each use and use an acid based brightener once a year. No waxing, very little maintenance, and will last long enough to pass on to your grandkids and their kids.

Gravois boats show up every now and then in the Boats Bikes and RV trader but hold their value well even on 20+ year old hulls.

I wish I'd have ponied up the bucks for a Charles Leonard hull out of Belle River,LA. He was building 21 ft inshore fish boats or bay boats out of 3/16 marine alloy aluminum. 72 mph with a 225, real good handling,handled a chop well, and the price was right.
All the aluminum builders in LA are good but some do extras under the deck for extra strength.

I just remembered a 40' Aluminum Cat that Bottom Line Yachts in St Augustine was selling. 11' Beam had triple 300 Mercs. He selling the hull only. Kinda different, has a pilot house and a huge cockpit for fishing. Not a Center console but a cool boat. Don't know much about .

It is still on Yachtworld.com. Click on boat search enter custom as manufacturer and put in 40 to 40 feet It should be the third boat right around 54, 000 for the hull. It is 2003. If you get it tell him he owes me a commision sion
