Someone's getting a treat for Thanksgiving and its not a Turkey.

These 30" Zukes have a 5" taller leg so they are mounted 5"higher

This makes room for the tiller arm above the cockpit sole when the motor tilts up. The 25" Verado's did not need the clearance.

More pics please!!!! I wasn't a cat fan until I saw this build thread. IMO you build the best looking and arguably the best performing cat out. I'm sure I'm not the only one that would like to see more pics of your works of art. Good luck in the future and hopefully one day I will be calling to order one myself.

Just multiply the catamaran price by two, and add a zero for this boat we demolded Friday..

My lamination manager calculated the weight of the hull with all of the structure @ 15,000 lbs. He was wrong again. It scaled out at 14,994.

We moved it back into the shed suspended by a fork lift at the transom. I don't think you could do that with a 70' Hatteras or a Viking. Of course they won't run over 70 mph either. :-)

That's quite a shed.
Did you erect it just to build these hulls?
Is this hull #3?

Magnum 70
Hull number 012.
Lots of Kevlar infused with Vinyl ester resin. Normally the bigger boats we use epoxy resin but the exterior has a compatible gel coat finish.

My bad thinking it was a 40' cat. I just thought you were using a wide angle lens.

Jassman, have you started your 39? Are you going to do a build thread on it? I hope you do and it will only help get the name out there. That is if that is what Jim wants to do versus only building a couple of them a year. Hopefully we can get a side by side comparison between Comp & Freeman once you receive yours. Good luck in future and hope everyone has happy holidays.

Any updates on the yellow 39? Photos or running footage?
We need to start a gofundme to get Jim a drone or at least a gopro.

The old bull says, "No, let's walk down and do them all."
It's the best quote. My boss/ mentor used to tell me that one, though he didn't use the word "do" lol.

I just saw a yellow Lightspeed 1188 with 300s on Summerland Key. I should have taken some photos. Nice looking finish on it. I believe the owner had a World Cat before. The thing is wide, and has a nice high tunnel. Big deep step on it.

They need to get the boats to the most popular charter captain's in each region. Then all the customers get to fish it and buy one themselves. This is how all the big name boat companies became well known.

Sales does not seem to be an issue. The only 3 sea trials so far have resulted in 3 orders. My interest is not building the most, but strive to build the best and provide value for the money.
