Lolol Savage back at it I'm not surprised. Ben Sheaffer builds one of the finest boats on the water, Truly a lifetime build. Very few can make that claim and Cayo isn't one of them yet.

To help bring the thread back on track, I spoke to JB over the weekend for a progress update and to hunt down some more pics. The console, leaning post and hardtop mock-up got finished and are ready for pipework. Still a few weeks out for the tower and final rigging to be complete. Drone shots of the deck layout are upcoming, he sent me a decent angle from his office but can’t attach it until I post more.

I asked about realistic timing expectations and was told September, we’re #7 on the list for perspective. If all goes well with the sea trial and walk through, she’ll be a SWFL boat fishing the outer flats, wrecks and hittin Keewaydin with the fam.

After further review of the post on insta, it seems the installation is being conducted on hull #2? Console has no electronics and I don't see a lounger in front of the console.

Your right. I see it now in the 2nd picture. Thank you for clearing that up.

So hull number 7 will be ready by September?

That’s JB’s estimate. Says it’s going to take a few months to get the assembly line rolling but is still targeting 15 this year and 2-3 month starting next year.

2-3 per month starting next year, that will be a sight to behold. Are these considered custom boats? I hope he does it, but I am very sceptical about that amount of production. Does anyone know how many the guys at Calcutta are turning out? I am guessing Calcutta, who has been building boats forever, is at maybe one every 5 weeks, if that.

How much space do they have over at Cayo? If they are turning out 2-3 per month they are going to need to be able to have an assembly line of what? Like 16 boats in various stages of production? That is a lot of space. It will be interesting to see how this all ramps up.

Semi custom.

That's an aggressive production target.

If they put out that many a month, better keep an eye out for quality control. Love the boat but the worse thing they can do is slip on quality.

Had an opportunity to climb aboard last week when they were at the ramp nextdoor to my house. Chatted with Capt. Harrington and ( I cant recall his name dangit, in my defense I was in awe of Cayo though) while it was on the trailer. Any previous speculation about the "cockpit" space seems silly after being aboard. The two of us (I'm 5'8 220... he likely 6'2 200+) could easily pass shoulder to shoulder walking behind the leaning post without touching. "Roomy" is an understatement in my opinion... tons of room/storage/livewell(s). All around thoroughly impressed. I think the lucky folks in line will be very pleased. Hope to see it at my marina more often. Ha
