Sharkey and everyone else.
Looked at the pics, a few questions.

1. Is building a boat with the hull split right down the middle and then glassed a commom practice? It would seem like a heck of a week point.

2. What are those holes in the front??? vents? I've buried the noses of a few boats that if those things continue with any form of restricted piping everything would of been blown to bits behind those intakes. If it is only aesthetics it would seem like a weak point in big seas when the bow hits..

Just observations don't crucify me I'm trying to understand here!

Mike,
The text says "Features - Ram Air Ventilated Triple Stepped Hull" Where does the air get rammed from.
Check the nose on those pics.

Fever Mike you and I go back a ways...I didn't say that Reggie invented the step or did he every say that he invented the step......Reggie however did bring offshore boats to a new level with all of his marketing and campaigning skills this is a fact not heresay. Does he have the best step? Who knows. He and the Fiore's have certainly been the only V-bottoms to rip big numbers off. Just wanted to clarify my earlier post as it was somewhat vague. How's the drum business these days? Hope all is well. Talk to you soon.
