I also noticed that it was side by side vs staggered.

The one I'm doing(the orange and silver one) also has a cabin. I don't have any pics on this computer. Will post some later.

Because it was built with Baja? Maybe the naysayers just like sitdowns and staggard boats.

I climbed in the first pleasure boat at Skater. It wasn't yet painted. It had a roomy cabin and cockpit. Everybody is different. I prefer a stand up pleasure boat with room to move around.

I raced the bravo boat with Welling in '04. Great boat and a very nice ride.

It was during 04 season. I don't know when it was completed. When I saw it there was no power or rigging in it.

My understanding was someone at Baja hired Peter to design and build a boat. By the time the mold was complete the guy was gone and Baja had no remaining interest in it. Then Peter Built a race boat to see how his design worked.

Why is the Red one still at LCM. I know LCM has issues but I would think someone would have bought this boat. New 2005? What gives?
