Definitely a lot of engineering and great fabrication....but this is arguably a better HD powered boat IMHO.

Should have used a Busa engine, then it would be 174HP instead of 74.

Years ago there was a company turning out kits for aluminum go fast boats. I believe the biggest was 30'. Has anybody ever built one? Or even know what I am talking about?

i remember a company had a thread here on an all alum offshore boat, they finished it and then it kind faded away... no idea what happened to the boat, the build looked awesome, maybe it was too light to really work well offshore...rm

I believe that was a Budwieser recycling/marketing project. Every 24 pack came with a separate page of the plans
