One in the mold. I thought the factory was pretty cluttered and unclean but I guess that's part of the job when working with fiberglass. They had 4 different buildings for the manufacturing portion! They employ 104 people. They are moving to a new facility in a few months which will be an all-inclusive shop from what I've been told. Right now they "farm out" most of the interior and painting work. When they move all will be in-house. Should be a great move for them!

This is their factory "poker run" boat. The name of the boat is Strip Poker. This boat is absolutely the nicest Cig I've ever seen. The picture does not do this boat justice. I believe the paint has 10+ coats of clear. The original painting had the model nude, but they wanted to make sure they didn't offend so they put some minimal "clothing" on her.....oh yeah, the paint job....$77,000! WOW!
