Arrow Line-X XS650 Scarab Dive Boat

This boat is named Thai-Fry and will be used for day commercial fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. Kyle the owner of the Clam House restaurant has built many boats over the years. This boat has a penguin access in between the two 250 yamahas for diving and hauling fish on board.

Wow, The options seem endless. Now I'm wanting to pick up and older boat, just so I can do a line-x restoration and not worry about beating her up.

I believe this stuff has opened a whole new market, solving the prob of paint as the only, far inferior, option in a restoration.

Questions galore about this..... Was this a Scarab iii 34? Very slick. Any links to the original builder of this or additional photos?? I would LOVE to see the build of that rear transom.

What was the quantity of Line-x used, and average thickness/coats?

Rob, you’ll have even more competition on the boat that’s getting ready to roll into Brian’s shop in the next week and a half to two weeks.....

Looks familiar to the ultimate commercial spear boat that has inspired several copies so far. 44 Tempest

Dan's 44 is definitely the king of all the dive boats, and he gets all the credit for the design at me and others have copied.

Oh yea? Can't wait to see that. Brian did the cockpit deck and all the metal for my new build, came out amazing.
