You have never layed up boats before and are going to figure it out on just two? I didn't think it was that easy.

What is the update on these? I was following this to see how the first ones ran this summer? When are they expected to be on the water?

Hi Andy,
Yes, after Dave establishes a layup schedule that works well I will lay them up from there, these are very simple hulls with no stringers or odd bracing or bulkheads to deal with.
The update as of now is that I need to complete the 2 concert tours that I am running concurrently and that runs until mid OCT, after that we will continue work on the project. One thing I have decided is that all hulls will be layed up in the fasll/winter as doing layups in 115 degree heat is insanely difficult and uncomfortable so the goal is for Dave to escape the frozen tundra of Ohio and come work in the perfect winter weather in the PHX valley. I know it seems as if this is moving a little slow but when the production schedule got pushed back in March it kind of forced a delay that I didn't anticipate. The boats will be great when they are done but as I have stated from the beginning they will be done right so if it takes extra time to make sure that happens so be it.

Kind Regards,
Kenny

Just tell Dave you have strippers and beer and he will be there in hours. He don't care about heat and slave labor as long as there are stippers and beer!!!

It's been years since I did glass work, however the biggest variable always was temp. I would recommend a climate controlled work area to do the layups. It will make it much easier to get consistent results.

Anybody can lay up but it takes a real man to grind.

I wish someone would start building the 13' Funcats again. Larry still has the molds in FL. Would love to see them come out a foot wider though and maybe a foot longer.
