    Billlllll, what are you thinking, new or used? If you are going back up it must be something that is going to be launched for sea trial. Call me, Steve.

    That is the kind of boat That I would have to sit and take 15 minutes or or to make a check list when I commission it. Lots of systems to go thru.

    Beautiful boat, can't imagine the man hours, start to finish that went into building her. I was aboard Backstabber in Wesmac's yard last August, very impressive.

    I think Steve purchased that land so he didn't have to keep asking the town permission to temporally store the boats there while they did the final touches.

    Amazing boat, I really wish they fish the ever living piss out of it. The owner should be very proud as well as all the guys at wesmac.

    Amazing. I wonder if that stern thruster will stand a chance at moving that huge keel.

    Anyone see any pics of the interior? They only have drawings on the Wesmac site.

    That overhead extension on the cabin looks great! It looks so good....you don't even notice it till you really pick the boat apart.

    He was docked over here a few days ago, so I can take a few guesses on his location

    Hell, just turn the radar on and look for the biggest biat.,
