my 24 ft Liberator was the most funnest boat I have ever owned. I have had many boats that were nicer, but that boat did it for me. I hate to admit it, but I was partying alot back then and me and the boys freekin destroyed that boat. Wow, what a blast that was. I just wish I knew then what I know now. If I knew anything about trim and tilt and how to use my tabs, that boat would have been so much faster. Live and learn. I was just a dumb kid at the time

LOVED that boat.

Our 43 Nortech was a blast, one heck of a boat....but Ive been building catamarans in a CC configuration. I enjoy fishing, but need to get the speed up in the 70-90mph range for poker runs. The 22 is one solid platform...and she is quick, over 60mph. We are now building a 27 with a CF hardtop first in the industry, full electronics and with a new bottom that we are all accustomed to in achieving speed..LOL...once finished a 31-32 as well as 34-37 wider beamed platform with trip and quad outboards will hopefully be in the Miami show next year. All serious machines..CF, Kevlar, S glass, some pre-peg construction, all resin infused, then vac. bagged, then off to the oven....each piece is then weighed, and then documented and spec sheet is sent to the customer.

Compmillenia is doing serious work in lightweight materials for yachts. How did you hook up with them? Can't wait to see the new cat CCs, should be very fast...

My favorite was my 1977 20 cig with a 454 trs. It ran in the low 70s. It was great. Should have never sold it

Jims been in the business almost 40 years. Extremely knowledgable person when it comes to composit materials. Very nice guy. This boat will be for demo days, rides, and we are working on a 31-32 and then I want to build a 35 with a 11' beam with trips, which has not been done yet. Hopefully Miami next year. Jeff
