Because the Barker is also a tunnel hull it pushes ALOT of white water into the prop and prop slip numbers are a little high IMO it is possible that 50 more horse power on a different hull could get a lot more MPH .

Well you know you've got a good thing when random THT folks start throwing shade on your product. Beautiful boat congrats.

When I think about it this boat is adding to Calcutta like Freeman did to world cat

It doesn't. It has a small pad, which makes it faster.

Its always hard to portray sarcasm in text. I knew the barker was a v hull and I’m familiar with a pad because that’s when the fun starts on my sterling lol

The boat looks great and everyone is excited to see these Cayo builds start rolling.

What is the hold up on all the molds for the top, hatch lids, etc? Has Cayo decided to change anything on the hull after the test runs? If there are no needed changes why aren’t they building hulls yet? If they need to tweak the plug/mold it surely will delay production some more. The original demo completion was first stated to be late summer then October and now maybe in time for the MIBS.

300K+ in deposits that hopefully are in some kind of third party escrow account.

Lids molds have been there a while and are all made but wont go on til final rigged. Tower top got there last Wednesday. No tweeking to the hull. Hull 2 is complete as well as some of the parts. They have hired a company to cnc cut all the glass and core so they can lay up faster for hull 3 and in the future.

they made a quick and dirty bottom of the tower fiberglass so that the metal work can start fabrication.

thanks for asking!

If you put a deposit down your deposit should be 100% refundable up until the day she gets started. If it isn't thats just not good business.

Good information on their plan to ramp up production. Thank you for sharing.

While, I love this build and look forward to the finished product, I don't think we need to have a pity party for the Steve and boys at Calcutta yet. I have a feeling that they will be just fine. Besides, haven't we been down this hype road with Barker, and a 50+ boat waiting list, etc...Can't we wait until we have a completed boat with some hours on it before we anoint a new king.
I agree as to Steve at Calcutta...they have other things they are working on and have always done a great job by the customer and given us a well made fiberglass boat that does many things well. Calcutta has always served a purpose for the guy that doesn't want to spend 230k plus for a state of the art 26' boat and needs to go 10+ mph faster with the same power.

As to all they hype...I'll personally like to wait and comment until the boat is finished and out a while. Yes, The Speed appear good, boat to me is sexiest 26' boat coming to market... very impressive, and congrats to them...but speed wise...I don't call it magic...really not any better than the state of the art 27 Compmillennia I built years ago with 150's. That boat was almost 28' long and was a offshore boat, not a hybrid that was able to go in skinny water. That boat with wrong props and testing only 3 times did just under 60mph with 2 guys, light on fuel when it was finished. The top, ice, 4 guys dropped it down to low 50's...... There are 2 schools of thought....and like mentioned earlier in this thread.. Light, strong, Blueprinted, stepped, = Fast. Good Luck in Miami.
