No doubt. While there was never a written completion date in the contract, the builder said our requested delivery of October 2017 was aggressive but he'd try to make it. November / December was a more likely delivery, again 2017. It's now end of September 2018 and we're still a ways off from seeing the boat complete which is obviously disappointing for a molded semi-custom 22' boat. On the upside, the boat and the builder's shop survived hurricane Florence, and after a long wait, the Suzuki DF200ap was hung recently.
