Those are the molds Wellcraft was using to build their 43's. I am surprized that Eliminater didnt notch the transom?? If they used composit core and vacume bag, it will be pretty quick with staggered.

I looked at those molds to build a boat this time last year when the molds were still at Finco Fabrication who built some boats from those molds, including the boat that set the diesel powered record from San Francisco to Los Angeles. I did not buy because its a very small 43 footer, I would estimate 6 inches less headroom than a Fountain 42. Like climbing in the trunk of a car. As I understand it, Finco did build some boats for the Military that had extended hull freeboard, and that was straightforward.

By all reports, its a great riding hull even in the Pacific Ocean.

But it sure is a small 43 footer.

I thought Larry Smith was still rigging the boats under his own name? Has that changed?
Larry teamed up with a West Coast hack rigger want to be out of Orange County that was premoting himself as the builder of the SCARAB (Kona) boat line including "Full Warranties" and custom rigging. This was the guy that wrote a warrenty on my boat and wont pull through leaving me with the bill when he said he didnt have any money or bond to cover it (No bond for a boat dealer in CA, Hmmmm....ILLEGAL!!!). I pitty the people who purchased more expensive boats from him.

I have talked with Larry in the past and found him to be a stand up guy. I am very happy to see that he has these molds with Eliminator (A company that can stand behind there product).
