The late Eddie Morenz was the owner of Great American Concepts. All of Lavey's Vhull technology is based on his designs. (I think they actually bought the molds from him) Kevin Cooper who is sales manager for LaveyCraft and campaigns the Lavey SVL boat was partners with Morenz

I thought I remember reading (could be wrong) somewhere that they came out with a 38 model utilizing the Nu-Era design. 2 were made.Jeff

Last time I talked to them (In Nov) they were hoping to introduce the Lavey model at the LA Boat Show. You are right about a few already out there

I dont know about all that but I can say that Eddie and I were pretty tight until his demise. Kevin was around alot but Eddie was always pretty much a lone soldier.

I thought that Kevin told me that they were partners but I could have misunderstood
