    Default 18ft gullwing design.. comments/opinons

    I want to eventually build a 18ft gullwing brand new... Have looked all over through the boards seen stuff I liked and didnt really like... This design I drew up is off my grandpa's/dads 1978 rogers used at a boat show back in the day... The boat has been completely re done and painted so that design is no longer.. I sketched/colored it using a pic of zacks all white gullwing.. tell me what you guys think.. Im open to all opinons and comments.. I really like the old skool red/black/orange/yellow..

    Looks cool. I think it would look better if you reverse the yellow and orange/red and make the bottom lines flow. Kind of looks like you have a fender on the boat. Just my .02

    Red and Yellow a personal choice, but the "fender" deal has to go by-by...just weird looking.

    Default Gullwing

    I would also swap the red /yellow/orange. I think that type of gell coat design has the old school style, always cool. I remember doing those drawings when i had my gullwing built. If you havent built one from a bare hull and want to haul ass stand by $$$$$$$.

    If I can interject...if black is going to be a color choice, definitely ask to clear gel first, then gel black, the black is pretty hard to keep, the clear holds a real nice shine for whatever reason, A buddy of mine builds Sail boats out of Florida, they absolutely will not build a boat of darker color without laying a clear gel down first, makes for easier repair work (Blends!), and holds up to the salt air and water, if anyone has seen an older boat on the water, you will notice where there is a clear used (Mainly color fade/shades on a deck), it holds a shine much better than the high solids.
    some will think im nutz for saying this, but those of you that have done any polishing or owned a black boat, will understand what I mean.

    I think the design on that 18' GW would look real nice!...all but the lower rear where the fenders would be, leave it black through there.

    Who is making the 18's other than Scotten? i thought he only built them complete anymore?
    the one at the entrance of the Regatta at Aha, looked like a nice piece!...anyone snatch that up? how much was Bill asking??

    Will Bill even build a black boat?
    Todd, is that why some black boats fade so much? I saw a wake boat that looked horrible. The owner says he can,t get the dull out.

    that's right and be a better product imo,but im biased

    Scott Seastrom does all the work himself from start to finish no matter the package you get,you don't have to deal with more than 1 person and his glass work and eye for detail is ****ing amazing


    so with that said yes you can get a 18 boat and get it built anyway you want it any color you want it.

    Ive been talkin to Scott Seastrum on the phone, he will build a hull for me 6500 on gel color.. all work is done by him.. and scotten wanted 8500 for one... seastrum will do a trailer for 3500 for the hull also.. and 300 for an extra gell colors each.. scotten wanted 9000 for that 18ft at aha.. it weighed 402lbs...im gunna have mine layed up at 400 lbs.. starweather was tellin me about a new material used to glass the boats.. its really strong and you can lay it up super light its a little bit more then the normal material but way worth it cause you can pretty much lay it up really light and it will be really strong..

    No, an old school Wicked Performance. Lamination by HTM back when Pat Beck owned the molds. If I was in the market for a 19' I would buy a Rouse. Beautiful workmanship and a good guy.
