Have thought about this and cannot help but comment the amount of money that it took to get this boat company back up and running and now bring a boat to a boat show and was not quite finished so what. From the comments I seen from several people they were impressed. I’m sure things will be different next year your doing an awesome job Neal Wallace!!,

I was in Miami for the boat show in Feb '05 when NorTech had the first 39 vee there on display. That boat too was not completely finished, especially in the cabin area. You could see, however, what the boat was going to be once they got the finishing touches wrapped up so I didn't feel it was a mistake to bring a not quite yet finished boat to the show.

How do those front bolsters look in person? Those stand out to me in the photos. Bases look a little flimsy.

I actually have been involved with a few boats at boatshows installing somethings before and during the show.

Also been to boatshows that interior was being installed during the show and so forth - including Miami Boatshow.

haha, good one. i dont think that Saber laid it up is any big secret. it isnt now anyways.

i'd rather have this new one, Saber lay up is bullet proof. top notch lay up at a production boat price.
