Anything is possible. Just would be an option...
id wait to decode on that till you actually see/touch the boat as it’s not actually that large and if you wanted it flush, it would be an option and if the time/price is worth it to you, we would do it for you?
Hope this helps?

Thanks! I'm looking forward to seeing more and more pictures of these as they come together from different angles; I'm sure you're right about waiting and seeing.

Your remark about if its worth it to you, we'll do it - that's one of the things I've always loved about East Cape as a casual observer. You guys seem to have quality and custom down and I love seeing you guys push limits and think outside the box in all the variations of your different skiff models over the years from scooter decks to that crazy yellow tiller vantage. I'll go binge watch those walk around videos on youtube and vimeo every once in a while (I guess y'all have kind of moved that to instagram for the new ones?)

I've always lusted after a VHP but just can't justify having a third boat out back right now and don't have room for another lift (although I do have room under the house for a boat on a trailer )

Anyways, keep on keeping on EC crew! I'm excited to see this boat come together!

Ok gang...
This is the Awl-Grip laid on top of the many coats of gel and sanding.
When I say smooth, I mean SMOOTH and finished! Areas I or you will never see are bonded, sealed, and protected!
The “wet look” of awl grip is nice and will be easy to clean for years. This is the type of fit, finish and quality I wanted in a new boat.

Off subject but it blows my mind that they allow the laminators to smoke while working like that.

The laminators are at a different facility/company, iirc.

Everything is done at their facility by East Cape that way they can control the quality and make sure everything is built to their strict standards.

I may have been confusing the Cayo 26 thread with this one.

So they sand gel and paint inside the hulll...ok. Seems like a money maker to me. What exactly is the big advantage?

For me it was going to all these "high end" builders and seeing exposed glass everywhere. Under gunnels, under hatches, inside consoles and pretty much anywhere that was not in direct eye site. I couldnt bring myself to spend the kind of money some of these boats get with so many unfinished areas. But fit and finish goes so much further. It's top of the line hardware, it's top of the line materials, state of the art technology on hull design, it's over building the strings, hull, liner and cap and then being truly custom. Nothing shakes, rattles or vibrates. It's solid and dry which is something not found in many of the high end bay boats.
East Cape and bad behavior like this.

Also the front seat lid itself kicks out a few inches to allow deeper seating. I like this as it still frees up space without crowding the cockpit.



vectorworks does a fantastic job making molds!

Hold up...not to derail this wonderful thread, but did Vectorworks do the tooling (or however you'd say it) for this hull? Was I confusing the Cayo thread with this one?

the console is definately being tooled at vectorworks. Btw the Barker cat and Cayo cat are both being tooled at vectorworks right now.

Looking back in the thread it looks like vectorworks made all of their molds. Good molds, vacuum infusion and top quality lamination schedules and gelcoat is what makes these boats look like they are made of glass! Flawless finish for sure.

We are a typical one-stop shop for a builder as we make our own designs,plugs,molds,prototype, and lastly end product and the assembly and rigging too! We’ve only used VectorWorks on this bay project as we had many pieces to make and felt using a outside company for this was the quickest way to market. They did 90% of the tooling, and the design/engineers we used somebody else...

Sure. Us! LOL
Its easy to see our smaller models played a part as we have the same style lines crossing over to our BAY. After building two prototypes we then could see what changes we needed and where, then applied them to our final product. Doing this makes things perfect as we feel you can’t just make a computer model and roll with it as real world always beats scaled models etc.
Once we dialed it in we then put it into CAD and used our architect. Then sent file to VW for tooling.
5yrs working on this 😉
