    I see nothing but benefit with that!
    Sandbars,rockbars, logs etc...am i overlooking any problems?
    Whats the cost of a 19' mod v that you guys run in the north?
    Judging by the cost of glass hulls in the south, you could probably have these manufacturers beat with a better product. If it actually worked!
    Im sure this issue has been beaten into the ground before.

    Belive me I'd love to see it. The problem is the cost seems too high for most guys to take the plunge. a bare tunnel hull without paint is $13500 and as someone who surfs ebay etc all the time I know full well you can buy a complete boat for that down there easily.
    Now for the guy who truely wants rip your face off performance its probably worth it but we havent seen too many willing to step up yet.

    Ironically one of the coolest projects we did this year is days from completion and will likely get shipped south right away for the owner to enjoy a little warm play time with his new toy. This thing isn't as fast as a tunnel and has some weight to it but is one nice boat....

    p.s. thats a 780 HP LS7 supercharged motor

    Some of the manufacturers down here have quoted more than that for a boat like/similar to mine, so i know that there are people that would step up, as long as it was a good looking boat! lol
    What has this guy got invested into this boat you are about to ship?
    Thanks

    I dont even want to quote a price on that thing as it will surely scare everyone away haha

    Lets just say its substancial

    The boat owner is from here but he wants to take a mini vacation down south to enjoy some late season boating. (Its already below freezing occasionally at nite here)
    As far as Im concerned boating season isnt done yet, Im going camping this weekend up river lol

    Cheers
