I thought it would be interesting, as well as useful to those looking at new boats to collect some information in a thread about the custom build process. So that this thread will last and not get edited or deleted, please just stick to the facts, and don't bash, promote or argue about various brands.
What I would like to hear about from others is the following information about their custom boat build, I will use mine as an example:
Manufacture: Seawolf Marine
Order date: September 2007
Promised time to delivery: 18 months
Actual delivery time: within 3 weeks of projected time.
Comments: I could have probabily gotten the boat on schedule if I would have pushed them, but I was not going to bring the boat to Alaska until spring, so it was not an issue.
