A friend of mine is building a sweet custom carolina boat that will be for sale when finished. All cold molded and lots of carolina flair I think its around 25'.

I don't have a lot of knowledge of others but I agree with marlineer that Calyber boats are probably one of most impressive boats I have ever seen. A local THT member has a 25' CC and I saw a yellow 25' Express when in Avalon NJ. The are nothing short of unbelievable

What sort of hull are you looking for? Plain or fancy?

mav,
give jim murphy a call at http://www.calyberboatworks.com/ . i might be a little biased, but i believe they build an awesome boat. nobody stands behind their boats like these guys. if you want to check one out, mine is in lighthouse point, fl for awhile. then up to the chesapeake.

Foster Boats in Hatteras has a few 80's Ricky Scarborough hulls they've redone and popped a mold off of. They look impressive, haven't ridden on one tho. About 110K with a f250 Yammi.

The mold was popped off a cold molded hull, they're going to start laying them up like the BD 28's. I think they have one cold molded hull left. Selling it through Macgregor Yacht sales (look in the back of marlin Mag for the number.)

Try John Lancaster of Diamond City boats in Beaufort, N.C. He does everything, but the tower himself and has a couple of guys that used to work at Jarrett Bay with him. Their attention to detail inside and out is tremendous. He just finished a 64, but has a 25 or 26 in the shop now almost ready for glass. He could probably e mail you some pictures. His number is 252 646 6680.

2005 seacraft,
well, that depends on what i was doing when you saw me.
however, it would probably be me. awlgrip calls the color "seafoam" green.

It doesn't have quite the flare of cold molded or fiberglass boats, but there's a DIY stitch and glue carolina style boat over at bateau.com. Many styles from 23-25' - small cabin, express, different deck/transom configurations, etc.

Talked to a guy who built the 25 Bateau boat, he said it wasnt a good design and the flair was nothing like the photos above really dissappointed with it.

I don't think there's that much flare just because you can't do the compound curves required without putting slits in the wood. Too many slits and the bow droops. So there is some flare, more than other bateau designs, but not much. Certainly don't build it with the expectation that it's going to have crazy flare. It's more just the carolina style.

On that issue, why couldn't the deck (gunnels) be extended a few inches past the sides at the bow? That would effectively create some flare and not look bad.

I guess with the stitch and glue method it limits alot of the things you can do versus a true cold molded boat.
