I am sure he’ll chime in shortly.

Absolutely. We routinely open the house up to fellow OSO peeps. Have meet life long friends from all over the world that way.

Always a bedroom open, let me know when you're rollin out. Although, We're about 1.5 hours north of GT Performance (Upland). But we are right on the beach in Ventura County. Beautiful Channel Islands only 14 miles out from our harbor. Our Cigarette wont be finished until spring but my buddy down the street has a 40 Outlaw as well and is an engineer. He'd get a kick out of this boat.

By the way, amazing project. As a previous Baja owner, just simply hella cool project!

Also, if you'd like to test on a larger lake instead of ocean or small So. Cal lake, I'd suggest Lake Havasu. Son-in-law owns Barrett Custom Marine out there and would be a good point of contact for you as well.

Anyway, feel free to PM me if you think you'll be north of L.A. area or need anything.

Thank You. Cabinetry skills are one of my hidden talents.. NOT!!

Two different cabinet makers actually bailed on that job over past 6 months. Then I remembered working with a guy long time back who did some amazing wood work on a river house near me. But now works in a totally different industry. At the shop who makes up all the custom gaskets in this build. Was sure glad to discover he hasn't lost his skill, and likes side work.. Handles all came in Friday, so hope to final fit Tuesday and then call it a wrap...

I did similar w/one of my 24’ Sonics for storage under bee berth cushions but forgot the flange to hold the lids and had to add them later.
Was a huge PIA and not near as strong as yours.

BTW, I built the bench seat and sun lounge for that boat too.
Glass rapped plywood structure then built a mold for a foam corded, glass lid.
Came out great.

Nice build! Only issue I see is the name on the top of the power. They did a hp upgrade on my Cummins 350 years ago in their Irwindale shop. I picked up the finished install and 10 miles out the turbo shaft snapped, filled the CAC with oil & debris. They told me they were not responsible!! Cummins warranty would cover the repair, Cummins laughed. I had the opportunity to learn what a BS company they are....Oh and I also shelled out $2K to repair the damage their supposed "approved" kit install caused..approved by who? Ha HA

Luckily all those pieces with someone else's name on em are "non-moving" parts I guess.. lol.

When I was a kid, the first time I recall seeing that name was on a local twin turbo jet-boat engine. But was still conflicted about leaving it on there in the beginning. In the end, we both felt it earned the right to stay due to the legendary history in racing and marine R&D that comes with it. Is a damn nice intake design, and they've tossed me a few bones from related in-house projects whenever I've ask.

However, I don't believe we've sent the invoice for that billboard space yet..

Reservoir tanks are done and at powdwercoating. Steering system all plumbed and tested. We fired up each engine on a garden hose last week and fixed a few clamp leaks on seawater system. However the weather in OH isn't looking too conducive to boating anytime soon.

So Dave and I caught a flight down to FL on Thursday to check out some shop and helper options for on the water testing. Cali plans got scrapped, because somehow it costs 20% more and takes two weeks longer to reach Australia from LA than it does shipping from east coast of FL. Still can't understand that one...

I'm flying back to OH in the morning to wrap up a few remaining tasks. Then packing everything up and dragging her back down to Sarasota, where we plan to meet up again in a couple weeks for real world testing.
