That's pretty cool. Never seen a boat come out of a mold.

Hey Jon, How much do those things go for? A buddy of mine is looking for a center console. Are they set up for outboards or I/O?

You can drive over to Formula near Ft. Wayne for a top notch factory tour. They are one of the most impressive boat factories I've toured, and build enough boats you'll see one in every stage of construction during your tour. That would be a nice day trip for you.



Troutly: TooOld had that 72 Glastron tri-hull looking sweet by the time he spashed it for the boating safety course!

They are not the cheapest boat ou there but they are unreal in performance. If he wants to go down to the company we can go any time. They only use a very little bit of wood (I think only the front bulkhead) so he will never have to do what I am doing now!!!! It is set up for outboard only. You use a bracket off the back. Will run about 45 with a 135. Not bad for a center console.

I was wondering this to. On monster garage the Ultra boat guy was saying that they started with a paint job and then laid the hull. I like paint jobs and all but lets see some emphasis on structure.
