    She's perfect. Little premature, but she'll evolve nicely.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    Looking good Matt. I see Luke is keeping busy on your boat, cutting down the bow makes it look sleeker. The front edges of the 3" channel under the windshield they cut down and and put in the triangle pieces in the front as well.

    Yeah Todd, it's pretty exciting. She'll never see salt water, so we went with the lower bow. The stock bow would make a perfect dual purpose boat for both the rivers and big blue, but for this boat, the salt water duties isn't going to be in her job description.

    Glen, Grant and Vence have been flat out awesome to deal with...I've been bombarding them with questions, additions, deletions, possible customizations, etc...and they have bent over backwards to accomodate them. I'm looking forward to getting down there next month and seeing the progress in person.

    Thanks, yes it's pretty exciting for sure...

    Weight should come in right around 2800# with the motor I'm told.
