    Hey guys, Sorry for the delay on the updates. We spent quite a bit of time building our hatches for the deck. We also glassed, fared, and painted the underside deck. We also installed the rear deck supports and took care of all the small jobs in the boat that would be easier to get to now. The fuel tank was installed last week and now the whole interior in glued in. We are installing the deck back on the boat tomorrow and then more glassing and faring to come!

    Thanks guys,

    Everyone on this site has been very generous and complementary of our build. I know we could get in front of 1000's of people with a build thread on THT but I also know people that love the boat would also bash it just because they own a competitors brand or for some egotistical reason they carry on the site. Here at Florida Sportsman I know I don't have to worry about that, top notch cast for sure.

    As far as price, it really just depends on how extreme the customer wants to get. (ex. engine, teak, paint, hardware, electronics, trailer, etc.) This boat will have about 2000 man hours in it when complete. At the end of the day its a very nitchy boat and market and I dont want to put a number out on someones commissioned custom order but I would be interested to hear what some think it is worth. Here are the specs.

    Thanks again,

    I wouldnt have a clue what a boat built like this would cost. $30,000 +?? Looking at the skiff market, it seems like the sky is the limit as far as price.
    30,000-60,000
    That is a very unique boat. Actually, boat/art. Im not sure which one it is
