It was optional and according to employees of Wellcraft, due to cure time in a heavy production schedule, ir.was only a 13% mix. Pretty much a marketing ploy

Slow progress but finally was able to get the boat inside a couple weeks ago. Just waiting for the marina to get it off the trailer and on stands and blocked up and level so I can start cutting away!

Well, after a long summer of screwing around with another boat project that I should have never bought in the first place, the Scarab will be heading back down to FL in a couple weeks. I shamefully haven't touched the boat since I put it in the storage facility, but I did stop by from time to time to say hi and stand at the helm and visualize what it will feel like when its all done . Anyhow, I'm moving to FL myself in about a week and a half and the boat will follow shortly after. If anyone has any leads on a good spot to put it indoors in SWFL let me know!

Well, after nearly 8 months of living in Florida I finally have a home for the Scarab to begin restoring her. I couldnít be more excited as Iíve been waiting almost a year and a half since I purchased the boat. A good friend of mine found this warehouse for us at an amazing price to lease for our projects and cars and such. As soon as Iím home from working in the Bahamas itís go time! The warehouse is in Ft Myers area if anyone was wondering. We might have some extra space on the one end if anyone is interested in storing a boat or trailer.

I might be interested in sharing the cost of your building if the logistics make sense. Iím in Sarasota. Do you have room for one or two 39ís?
