2012 Shop Tours ~Miami Boat Show~ Poker Run and SandBar Photos
2012 MIAMI BOAT SHOW road trip starts with a factory tour of Doug Wright's High Tech Composites LLC / CNC Design Automation, Inc. facility located in Sebastian, Fl.

As with many boat builders, they also have other resources other than just building boats. They share a 40,000 square foot building with another company which is run by Taras Rud of UDC "Ukrainian Defense Consulting" that supplies airplane parts to the government.

Doug does all of their tooling for the parts which appear to be all made from carbon fiber.

This was a very interesting shop to visit. First thing that I spotted was a CNC machine. Not only did they have one but they actually have two of them.
I hope you enjoy this first part of the Miami Boat Show Road Trip.

Something you won't find at the Boat Show.

The new 38 HYPERSONIC.

Frisini Motosports is slammed with orders right now that they could not justify losing time away from the shop at this point and are concentrating on finishing current orders.

It was an exceptionally busy week and it continued into the weekend.

I will have Florida Powerboating coverage, a detailed shoot of the Miami Marine Stadium, Scenic shots of Florida and much more to come.

I am spent all my time shooting and zero time processing images. I wanted to collect as much content while I was there so I hope you all understand. I appreciate your patience...

I was hired for the day to go out with 3 families with the new Statement 36 and the Bermuda Challenge boats.

It was a great family fun day with the Statement Marine boats... :)

The new 368 Statement CC has an incredible ride....

A quick preview of Miami Marine Stadium.
After taking the risk of entering this place once, I don't feel the need to ever go back...

1st time to shoot a few brand new DCB's .
Being as they typically attend the LA Boat Show I never get the opportunity to shoot these boats.

Therefore I took full advantage of them being in Miami...

Also, DCB was the 1st to have Video taken with my new camera dolly that I fabricated just before the show... Once all caught up, I will be putting together the video clips taken of the DCBs...

Their tooling is spectacular to get a shine like that with no imperfections... :rock
