It's quite straight forward to work with given the right tools.

The hull was filled with foam billets before they were welded sealed. It would take a lot to drag it down.

I am thinking of making a couple more if anyone is interested. Can do anything from 16 to 24 feet.

Looks like we are going into production again.

We are building 3 more 24 footers and 1 more 18 footer. Let me know if anyone else is interested. Boats are all full custom to customer spec.

Not sure if they were backing out or stripping out (though either would be pretty likely, I'd think.) I do remember that some of the problems were in locations that were pretty much inaccessible, and required factory attention to remedy.

The boat was built by a fairly major US manufacturer (or at least a US distributor) who I can't recall right now (Tracker, perhaps?), but I have not heard or seen anything about it in oh, 6 years or so.
