    Yes, this is the 1984 "gotta go" fuel jet that Fred Brey ran for a while. You can see the little gotta go cartoon still on the front of boat before it was reworked.

    LOVE what you did to the top. With the right paint job it will be bitchen. Keep it up.

    tom, this boat is being used as a "plug", from which a new mold will be created. the deck has been extensively modified from the "before" pics. the deck and bottom were first seperated at the seam. once the mold is created off the deck, it will be flipped and the same amount of detail work will be done to the bottom, then the bottom mold created. the old hull is no longer functional.

    scott and tom are doing it in scott's shop. at this point, it's primarily scott, being the guy creating the plug and then the mold. it will be their mold. it will be a little different from the other ones...
