Coastalfiberglass, you've done an amazing job and I want to thank you for using my Epoxy Primer and Universal Clear. I presume you buy from Cal @ Mill Industries?

Is this Barry? If so yes I do. Cal is a great guy and your product has held up great! Trailered the boat all the way to Michigan and back with not even one rock chip! Pretty amazing.

Also just wanted to give the update the boat has found a new home! She went to Maryland to her new owner. They were great people and got a amazing boat! It was great to sell it to someone who really appreciated all the hard work that went into this rebuild. Here is a shot of it pulling away. Enjoy the boat!

Its his son Andy.

Cal does and incredible job for us and I wish we could clone him.

Sorry to hear you sold the boat. Would you care if I shoplifted a couple of pictures off this thread and put them on our website?

Seems like a lot to ask out of a Nissan Titan, but i guess that is for another thread. Boat looks great.

We knew someone would say something about that! The trailer has brakes all the way around. The boat will live on a boat lift so it will not be towed.

Well that was quite a story from start to finish -- glad to see the boat is going to a good home. Beautiful work. Can't wait to see your next boat! BTW, we saw some of your other work at Busch Gardens last week, and it looked great.

Default I am the new owner

She needs a bath from 5 hours of bug splat in night driving. The borrowed Titan did okay but drank 3 tanks of fuel to get her up here in Maryland. I'll be out this weekend learning how to use her. The electronics and twin engines are new to me. I will be leaving the Coastal logos on the back so that the credit is given to where it belongs.

Its very hard to explain what a great guy Craig is with highest level of integrity and morals that you could ask for. I strongly recommend that when you need glass work and paint that you check him out.

Anyone looking for a 24' Pro-Line, she's for sale on this site....

Have to agree, he's an A+ guy who does excellent work.

Very similar to the Optis but it gets there very fast. Gets 2mpg roughly crusing in the 40's light load. We could run low 60's with 4 blade Suzuki 26p. Also tried a set of 3 blade which ran upper 60s but would blow out. So we went back to the 4 blades. Runs great but could probably be fine tuned a bit more if wanted. Handles great and tracks straight as a arrow.

Wow, I'm sure you are a bit sad to see it leave after all that you put into it. Thanks for taking us along for the ride and all the explanations of why you were doing things a certain way, I sure learned a lot, thanks again!

All that work and then you sell it?

Does that mean you're ready to do some work on mine?

Sure ship it on down! I will have another boat here very shortly. A boat I have been looking at for awhile has come up for sale around here, so that provoked the sale! Boat went to great people, she will be well cared for!
