    Did I read somewhere on your site that these 22’s were available with 2 different hulls (deadrise aft/ draft)?

    thought the talk was on a 25 or 26 outboard hull different then the 26

    We do have plans for an outboard version of the 26 but for the time being we are focused on the development of the GM 22 product line.

    Speaking of product development... We have a few different GM branded stainless accessories in development at the moment, some are closer to production than others. 20180129_153618.png This is a prototype for a branded investment cast stainless steel scupper plate. There is no guarantee that these will actually make it onto the boats (engineering them function to as good as they look is critical), but I must admit, it came out better than I expected. I believe the saying goes "nothing ventured, nothing gained"!.

    If the 26 outboard was a reality
    Built as a walk around like that 22 that was built
    I'd be first in line check in hand

    Can anyone tell me the difference between the GM20 and 22 (other than the dimensions)? Is the 20 just a shrunk down 22?
    I emailed GM and I am waiting to hear, but I’d like any first hand knowledge. The 20 might fit our needs better than the 22 (trailerable, limited dock space).

    The 20 is a completely different design than the 22. The GM20 was designed by the owner of GM, Stacey Raymond. While Calvin Beal was contracted by Stacey to design the 22 for GM.

    The 20' is a bit more 'non traditional' than the 22 - it has more deadrise, allowing it to maintain a comfortable ride at slightly higher speeds, but also eating up a bit more HP than the 22. It also has molded spray/lifting rails instead of bolt on rails. With the bow flare and tumblehome at the stern, the 20 is really a sweet looking boat that doesn't get enough credit. One could even argue that it has some regional characteristics of the Carolina boats.

    Since it is not really much cheaper to build than the 22, I believe that is why there have only been a handful of them built.

    Well said! We get lots of calls on the 20 but with only a few grand diff in price between the 20 and 22, many opt for the 22.

    Well I certainly dont want to be responsible for negatively affecting your well being! Here you go...

    20180216_171921.jpg
    This piece is closer to production than the scupper plates... custom investment cast stainless steel cap for the top of the stem on the bow of our boats. This cap will receive the port and starboard rub rails where they intersect at the stem. This will provide a cleaner looking alternative to just bending the rail around the sharp bow entry found on our boats.

    Seems I have hundreds of pictures but cant find any of the 20 and 22 side by side. Reasonable request tho, I will make a mental note to make that happen when spring comes and we start launching boats.

    By the way my diesel fill cap on my 26 is starting to finally pit. I saw there’s a few different sizes available. I have the above deck stern tank. Do I need a 1 1/2” or 2” fill size? Keep up the good work. Proud to have the General Marine name on my Boat.
