|Photo at right submitted by a customer from Canada. “I hope you recognize it. It was stretched to 25’, same beam (It wouldn’t have come out of the garage if any wider). Changed the windshield (the center pane opens), added a head, etc. All mahogany marine plywood and solid. Epoxy encapsulated and fiberglass even on decks and gunwales. 1.7 L Mercruiser Cummins diesel, alpha drive. 32 miles/h @ 4,500 rpm with 21” prop. Gets on plane very easily. Christened July 1,2004. Built the boat in two parts, hull and cabin on the one hand and upper deck on the other in order to deal with the garage door.I hope you enjoy the pictures.” - A. D. Canada

|Photo at left was submitted by a customer from Ransomville, NY who constructed this model from a complete boat kit. The customer extended the cabin for additional room, and used the Epoxy Plus system throughout. As can be seen, he did an excellent job. The customer was well pleased with the performance, recording speeds in excess of 40 MPH with a 150 HP outboard.|
