Hmmm, as far as I know, Mystic powerboats or Callan marine have not had any problems procuring Kevlar, carbon fiber, or any other lamination materials? Probobly different suppliers. Interesting Mystic/Callan factoid # 17,

The C50 molds, (Both deck and hull) are made of Carbon FIber!$$$$

Callan or Mystic don't do anything half a$$!

I wish i knew the story with Platinum. I would love to go forward with building one. I even know what I am doing for paint. I know Doug Wright told me about 6 months ago that material was getting hard to get and he was smart enough to stock up while it was available.

If anyone has a Platinum update please let me know. If anyone from Platinum reads this please be kind enough to let me know what's up. Thank you

Ginger,sorry to say,no it is not done....However,for all practical purposes it will be better than new.
All glass work,new paint,new interior,new patentable trailer,new #6 gimbals are mounted,drives are in the box's,new motors are dressed,it just has to be finished.
What would you charge me to come down and put it together ?We have a nice shop.
We do have the Skater running,however.
