A huge thanks to the Mike's at Prime for fabricating beautiful machined parts and for all their expertise in rigging!!
An equally huge thanks to Billy B who took our "Miller Beer Can Concept" and sprayed some amazing color!!!!
Most of all thanks to my Dad for wanting to do this project, my wife for putting up with the countless hours that were spent building it and to my mom who thought we all were nuts!!!

My FIL and I talked to the owner of this boat last year at Jack Smith when the Flat bottom Regatta was going on. Great people and the pics dont do this boat justice. Absolutely beautiful!

Cool boat, but why is the navigator facing forward? How is going to see the skier throwing ups? :)

Nice boat! I really like the choice of aluminum heads on the engine.

Nice to see a installation of the motor plates on top of the stringers like the circle guys do it is better have the weight straight down on the stringer than from the inside. Great install.
