We took delivery last week and got the new ride on the lift.

Here are a few pictures at delivery.

My Mom and Dad came up for the big day! My dad wasted no time jumping on to head to the lift. I have to say this was an emotional day for my family since the only other boat we’ve owned was the ole mako that they bought when I was 12 and then sunk on me last year after our last project.

Originally we set the lift up for the boat to be pulled in but after pulling the boat in we realized we’d have to back her in. The lift guys and EC took care of everything.....of course with my Dad's supervision, lol!

Awesome! looks very beautiful and fast.

Attach some sort of fixed bumper on the dock to protect motor cowling if the winds or helper/crew is asleep at docking

Looks absolutely amazing! Congratulations on a great boat! Enjoy it in good health!

Takes a lot of commitment to do a build thread like this. Appreciate the effort. I learned a ton from it.

Do you have to cut power and pull yourself in the cradle or do you just lower the lift way down? It would be nice if they could just shift the supports on top of the pilings to move the whole assembly out to give your bow clearance. Or maybe cut out some dock? Your boat turned out awesome, good luck with her.

A few more pics from delivery and a pic of the boat via the drone.



Nice shot in the river with the drone.

The forward coaming and fishbox are attached via magnets so I can remove them when fishing and bring them along when cruising and sandbar days! No snaps anywhere.

My favorite picture of them all. Everyone that’s most important to me in one pic. My Dad who is my best friend and Mom who is my rock and my wife Allie. She gave me the honor of marrying her on Nov 30th of last year. She’s a combination of my best friend, my rock and true partner. She was with me every step of the way on the build.

She’s a keeper. Out there on her day off cleaning the boat!
