Damm that "low rider" came out SWEET !!
I agree. This has got to be one of my top two favorite fun decks. The other was my old one.

I am really starting to dislike this thread. The more I look at it the more I find myself thinking about irrational financial decisions. :D
I read this post yesterday.
I went in last night.
It’s cool being there when no one else is. It’s fairly quiet, for a boat shop.
The sound of cars on the freeway outside is about all you hear.
It used to kinda creep me out being there at night. Molds groan, boats curing in molds popping and creaking, the old ass building creaking and groaning.
But now, I find it peaceful:)

When I got there I came through the door and flipped on a light, it was an awesome sight. For whatever reason your post popped into my head:D

So after all these years, do you still sit in the driver’s seat of the boats and make motor sounds when you are there by yourself??

Any updates on this one.
Yes mike and Jose cut the deck 12” in the rear and 3” up front to make this a low profile build. As you can see the lines no longer match up. She’s in line to get bulkheads and the two halves bonded together. Then back to gelcoat. This will be a long project.
