How do the rear boxes drain? I'm waiting on Norm to quote me how much to build me it and take out my rear tanks. Trying to decide whether or not to build the liners, or just fare the hull and put in bulkheads towards the rear of the hold.

I don't need 250 gal anymore and would honestly prefer the storage. If it ever came to needing the fuel on a regular basis, I'd just build the center tank setup like you have.

i think the default is to just drip into the transom. I was planning on using one as a fish box, so had Norm plumb mine into the transom. Iím very happy with them as well. Nice to not have to lug dive gear or bleeding fish up to the bow.

I made a manifold . It can be pumped out while sitting in the water or open ball valve on the transom and flow out on its own on plane or out of the water .

What led you to decide on adding the aluminum backing plate? Is this due to your custom leaning post and cooler slide? Thanks

Thatís simply not true. They still represent a steep value over the quotes I just received for a Conch 27 and SeaVee 290(among others). Nowhere near 200k. Youíd really need to go crazy for you to get past 175k. Iíll be somewhere closer to 140k rigged with twin 200s.

I suggest you compare your options list to the boat featured in this thread. Iím willing to bet youíll be much closer to $200K thank $140K. Itís not apples to apples. I mean, you can build one for $60K, but it will just be a hull and youíll have to drag it down the road with a rope.

Yes, you can absolutely build one for $140K, but that boat wonít be in the same category as the boat in this thread.

Okay, fair point. Wasnít knocking this guyís rig but more defending the fact that WW doesnít charge near as much as the SeaVee and Conchís of the world. Thatís not a bad thing, btw.

Can we agree that the boat in this thread with identical options with SeaVee or Conch slapped on the side of the hull would be closer to 250k then? Comparatively speaking, a 140k boat in terms of options from WW was 200-225k with SeaVee and Conch as of 10/2020 when I priced mine out with the options I really need.

Totally agree with that. I still believe that WW may be the best value in the center console world.

yep, my only issue is the 22 month wait Iíve chosen to endure. Wish Norm would expand his space and hire a couple more guys to get an extra boat or two out each month, but then again...like so many have said...he is old school, ha.

All that you wish for drives the prices up. You canít have it all. Itís a solid long lasting boat. Iíve had my 2007 since 2009 and still looks great.
