Just a cool article I came across about a great custom builder.

Class act that builds a fine piece .
I hear Tom Hanks hung out on a Bayless up here while filming "Capt Phillips", and he liked it!
I have fished out of OI with his son as a mate and he was the definition of a good mate, looks like the apple doesn't fall far from the tree....

I talked to Mr Bayliss for quite a while when I was thinking about moving down to the Carolinas. I initially called about an employment opportunity he had listed but wound up bullshitting for a half hour or so about life down there... great guy!

I went on one of his boats called Hey Chama.
