Finally, I get to see what the shop looks like. While I am sure you are looking forward to a new more expansive shop, I love the humble beginnings hiding such a savage beast. There is an inherent appealing quality that comes from unassuming beginnings. In the 90’s and early 2000’s I had a family member tearing up the dirt late model scene, won lots of big races and a few series championships. When people would stop by the race shop for the first time to pick up a chassis or get other advice they would pass right by it. Why? Because it was an old Morton building some of which had a dirt floor, overall was very modest looking and not what people expected. Of course it would have helped if they made sure the sign was permanently affixed to the building but it was borrowed a few times and finally they didn’t bother to replace it.

The technology going into this build is impressive, the attention to detail is admirable and the time spent getting things right makes for a solid foundation. I am rooting for you and will be waiting for a picture of those elusive elves that fair boat parts.

I say the "B" in Berky also stands for BEAUTIFUL. In my dreams I retire and come to work for you and learn Jedi boat building I for one am in awe. Would love to ride one day and maybe one day be a proud owner.

Are we really close to having a new “top tier” of fishing cat? I think we are about to have the conversation Berky v Compmillennia...... daylight second?

Good morning Berky, the boat looks amazing and I love the sense of scale the photo with the kid at the wheel gives! wow its big! I am so stoked for you and cant wait to see your new shop, although your current one seems to deliver a hell of a product! Congrats and best of luck in the future.

Finishing up the carbon strut with window inset molds The front windshield will rotate or pivot open 180 degrees to rest against the console for summer time anchor ups . This cat will have many sweet features like suspension in the helm floor and the Llebroc Tradewind seats.

Wonderful work Berky, it’s been great to watch this come together so far.

Cant wait to see the other “surprise and delight” features you’ve incorporated into the boat.

You'd be amazed to know who that is at the wheel.
