    Cool.

    First thing you've gotta do...cut a slot in the deck... about 1/4" x 4"...then every 2 weeks, slip your paycheck in there.

    Welcome to boat ownership. It'll be fun. I promise

    Looks like it could be one of our old 25 Hawaiians, or a copy of one. We tooled that boat up in house and it's bigger version the 28 with the built in swim step.
    That's also out of the mold that we used to build some patrol boats for, rigging with twin berks and BBC's and a 50 ca. gun turret on the deck.
    Big seller, we built one a day either the 25 or 28 for years along with all the other stuff. My friend still has these molds, if it's a Hawaiian.


    SKV also had a hull that looked similar to this.
