I do like carbon fibre, had it between the stringers of the Kurtis. We must be getting close to coming out of the mold. Can't wait to see the Alky flat, the hardware alone was awesome just machine finished:D

The Giroux boys have moved the shop from Camarillo out to the Victorville area. It should be up and running soon and back into production. Phone number is unchanged if you need to get ahold of Pete or Sean.
Wow,that's going to be quite a change in climate.

On the plus side,they're close enough to entice me up the hill to throw down with some in the mold gel designs in the future if they're so inclined.;):thumbsup

Mike, I talked to Pete on Christmas day and he was out in the shop trying to get stuff organized so the first black FB could come back from the paint shop to be assembled (all the hardware is at the shop waiting for it). The second black FB is almost done at the paint shop and should be headed back to the shop to be assembled soon. Your hydro should be on deck soon!!!!

I do hope that between black boats, a gray boat finally comes out of the mold:hmm. I'm sure it's gonna be a little rough to make the trek but a picture or two would be nice, Thanks RB:D

Last I heard, the blue one went to Victorville in the move and just needed the deck put together. At one point, the owner was putting a blower motor together for it but I am not sure if he has moved on to other projects ??? but I did love the stringers in it!!!

I was there when sean was laying out that battery tray. Completely one off. It was amazing how much time and energy went into getting it just right. Check the slots for the rod to go through all the material and not bind!!! Way over my head!!!!

Almost everything you see inside this thing is made by hand on the mill in their shop.:yikes:yikes
More assembly work. My understanding is the boat has a "killa" motor waiting for it at home on the other coast!!!
Purple haze !!!!

Getting close
WOW!!!!!!! That is pretty! Finally get to see it out of the mold. Talked with Pete earlier this week said the deck was getting glued on this weekend (looks like it's already happenning) and we're just waiting on a few trailer parts. Now I've got to get my sh*t together and get the garage ready for her!!:D
