Default 27 Gravois in rigging

This is the same boat I posted a while back but now in rigging. Hard to believe that is aluminum! I will post a set of final photos once she is complete. Hope to sea trial her next week.

check out the above thread for construction photos. Yes she is aluminum and will have twin 300 four strokes. Uploaded two photos but only one loaded. I will load the rear shot again.

J Dill, where do you plan on doing most of your fishing. Out of the point? Or elsewhere?

Not familiar with this boat but knowing how light aluminum hulls tend to be that looks like a rocket ship! Pretty boat for aluminum!

If you dont mind me asking, what is the ballpark price for this boat rigged with the twin 300 Yamahas? You can PM me if you would rather.

They ain't cheap but you are never going to buy another boat ever. Its a lifetime boat. I thought they were only doing military contracts right now?

I fish out of Dulac and have a long inland run to my favorite spots. We hope to get 65 at twobthirds power. Taking bets on top end. Final rigged weight I think is about 4500#.

Jimmy is building some rec boats and is still doing the government thing. I understand they are going to open a rec boat division or at least a separate shop. I don't have any other interior shots other than construction but will post as soon as I get. Hope I covered all questions!

Looks great, be interested to see how it sits in the water and if it ends up only drawing 12".
