    Default Greg High ?????

    Anybody know Greg High, where he is or what he`s doing now? I was told that he lives in Arkansas. I`ve got a boat that he built and the guy who ordered it had it made with the Ugliest color combination i`ve ever seen. Notice that Ugly has a capital U? Its a lime sherbert green and maroon color with a little lavender mixed in. Looks like something a queer would have. I`m changing the color b4 it goes to the lake. I`m thinking i might get him to re-gel-coat it another color. That is if i can afford it. If not i`ll paint it with some red primer out of a spray can. Would appreciate it if someone could tell me where he lives or hopefully a phone number. Thanks..........

    Someone will correct me if I'm wrong. But Richard if you ask if someone knows where the guy is that built the Sunkisst and Mantra boats over around Memphis you might get more info.

    yes, its a gull wing mantra copy built by Greg High. looks like a TX-19 but narrower. what did mantra call those hulls? the hull is mediun lay up at the most. i might could get by with walking on the deck if careful. has a droop snoot and place dirverter. might not have bought it for the price had i not looked in it and feasted my eyes on the jetaway. its a 468, j/e pistons, eagle crank/rods, dart pro 1 heads, comp .722 roller, msd ignition and two 850`s on a ugly weiand intake. get ready Grady Sloan cause when i get it presentable i`m comming to Rkansas and you`re gittin challenged. hopefully i won`t have to stick my tail between my legs.............
