Default Time killing question

Lavey Jr or anyone else on here, do you have any idea of roughly how much it would cost to get a closed bow 2750 converted to an open bow at the factory?

I'm assuming a mid cabin open bow, right?

Lavey has never built or converted a 2750 to a full walk through open bow, but I'm sure they can do it. That would just require quite a bit more work I think.

Nordic may do it. I've read they charge around $5K. Maybe a little more for the tradesman that's never done it before.

Why not take it to the manufacturer that built the boat?
Lavey Craft will do anything that any customer wants done to their boat, within safe measures. Lavey has converted a lot of their boats to open bows, along with many other brand of boats.

Yes, mid cabin open bow. That is what I want, but canít find any of them anymore.

Its a westcoast thing with those MCOB boats. They never took off in Texas and you can not give one away here. I would do a search in AZ and CA cause really thats the only 2 states has this MCOB more so in numbers. In 20 years I have only ever seen 5 MCOB s in Texas

Thats true, but donít forget thereís the twin outboard 2750 MCOB in the Louisiana area.

Ljr. Hope your doing well and congrats with your new little one. I bet your Dad is surely a proud grand dad.

Anyways I wanted to make clear I was not pointing at Lavey Craft nor singling them out with the MCOB s but what I really was saying ALL the boat builders -- WESTCOAST MCOB's as really none of them have made their way into Texas as a set up of choice.

And I have never understood that. All though I have seen more than that on Lake Travis. Cuddy cabin is wasted space in Texas. All it ends up being used for is storing life vest and water toys. Too damn hot for anyone to hang out down there.

By the way BUP, what is the status on your new ride? It has been 6 months since I saw Dave post something. Did you ever get the final numbers on your motor? I would sure like to see a Laveycraft in person. Hopefully before I drive somewhere to buy one. LOL
