Default RPM 26 Redline By Lavey Craft

This build has been started for a little while now and I figured some of you on this forum might enjoy seeing it come to life.

If you did not know and/or you missed the article by Speed On The Water, Lavey Craft is now building the RPM 26 Redline and wants to do their best to keep Steve Tripp's vision alive! https://speedonthewater.com/in-the-n...rpm-catamarans

The first 26 Redline that Lavey Craft is building is out of the mold and in production. Power package for this boat is going to be a Mercury 700sci mated to a Mercury #6 drive.
Before layup up on the first boat, Lavey dedicated some time to modifying the existing cockpit. The goal was to clean up the RPMs interior by reducing the number of upolstry pieces in the gunwhale and create a single molded fiberglass piece. This modification also opened up some good space in the cockpit which is always a plus! I will do my best to keep this updated as the progress continues. Enjoy!

Here is the cockpit liner insert that Lavey Craft made for the RPM. The boat pictured here is the all carbon boat that Joe Malich had and is having Lavey finish for him. All future RPMs will get this cockpit piece. You will notice on the driver side the different levels and angles, the closest platform with the less angle is for the throttle/shifter and the outside platform will be the switch panel and cup holder or anything else you'd want to put there. The throttle location is wide enough to fit twin controls for outboard configuration.
