    I second that. Beautiful too. Good luck.

    She is basically the Lake & Bay Boca hull with a improved top cap ...

    IBW purchased the mold and made some needed improvements ...

    This is hull #1 and was originally built as a yacht tender - so no power poles or trolling motor....

    Master Repair is doing the work now.... Starting to come together nicely ..

    LOA = 20'6"
    Beam = 8
    Weight = 1100 hull + motor, etc ...
    Draft = +/- 12" ... Will do some tests soon

    Performance = I only spent 30 min on the boat during a sea trial so didn't dial her in --- but ... With the Verado 200 4cyl and a 4 blade she ran 42 mph @ 4200rpm and the builder claims they got 57 mph wot .....

    Others say it should hit 60 ... I will work with Ken @ propgods once I get her down home ... would like to see a 45mph cruise and +60 wot if possible ...

    Fit and finish is really nice ... What you would expect from the former Hell's Bay guys ....

    and of course Mike @ Master Repair is doing an amazing job on the fishing accessories ..
