Post by akcat »

Here is the start of the boat. I can't post multiple pics so I guess I'll do it one by one.

Great shots. Pretty exciting having your boat develop into your dream.

Notice there are no shots of the sales, office, or executive staff.

That's a good looking boat. I've done the same thing you are doing taking pics throughout the build for one it is fun to show them and two if you ever decide you need to change something or add something you can look back at the pics and have a fairly good Idea of what you are dealing with under the deck. I don't know how long you had to wait for them to get you boat started but it's going to be a hard wait for it especially if you are going to look at it every week. I'm picking mine up tomorrow I hope and I made the down payment on Jan. 5th It's been a long 4 months to say the least but pickup day is going to make it all worth while. Keep the pics coming!

Wow Akcat I look forward to seeing her finished. I can imagine how much you are looking forward to seeing sea trial day.

Thanks for sharing.

how large is that boat gonna be?
Can't tell, now.

I'm assuming huge to hold those two engines that are squatting the Pickup.

She is coming together nicely. I look forward to seeing the progression and eventually some bloody decks!

Neat, another big aluminum boat headed for Alaska! Are you shipping it or driving it up? My trip starts in two weeks. Where are you going to keep it? Keep the pictures coming.

I'm shipping it, because this is our busy time year for work :mad: . We have a slip in Seward and it will be there from spring to fall and Whittier for hunting season. Just went out in the old boat we sold to show the guy how everything work and it was a sad day. It's hard to get rid of a boat you had so much fun with , but oh well new one will be done soon enough.

Quite a bit to it. Building one of these guys is more complicated than a person may think.
