Nice, can you get them without paint just aluminum with SharkHide or Nyalic coating?

The hull is 5086 Aluminum 1/4 inch on the bottom and 3/16 in the sides. I don't know what finishes he can do but there are various finishes that go on the government boats. See his site at www.metalsharkboats.com. I don't have the deadrise but she holds 170 gallons in the floor. the console is 48 inches wide and the boat is 9'6" wide.

"Back"?
They never left.

The finest in the industry as to what they build and do.

If they design and build it, it'll be done right.

I have never got to get up close to one of these, but damn they look good.

I don't know if a 27' boat would still be considered a bay boat????

Does anyone know if they are going to any boat shows?

I dont know how we ever lost him.
Our loss, their gain.

OK, this is just a stunning boat. Im partial to aluminum, so maybe its my bias, but nonetheless.

deadrise looks to be around 22 from first pix.

thx for the bow shot; just want to compare it to a couple of pacific nw tin boats Im looking at

I saw more of your build on the bay boat thread, and Id be curious what the weight is given youre only drafting 1. id bet a fair amount of that skinny draft comes from your 96 beam, but my guess would be 4500#. if so, thats a great # for a 27cc.

I would assume you are not foaming in the hull, so Im curious as to noise level, particularly given your long runs you mention on the bay boat thread.

you wrote on the bay boat thread smooth water runs? thats not necessarily the gulf, but surely youre taking this boat offshore?

side height 30? 35?

did u consider hankos, btw?

last question (for now): what do I need to do to become your new best friend?

I'd like to join you some.

Chris:
Are you foaming the hull?
If no, why?

Is this a government contract or a production hull?

Suggested power and performance expectations?

And, BTW, our very best wishes to you guys from SAILFISH/SOUTHWIND.
