    My brother just picked this work of art up, not a DE, but at least it's built in ME, fast and dry, 54 knots WO. Killing the bass now.

    That's acceptable.

    The fit and finish on those Southports make the grade for me. Just hope nobody goes posting their 'Gayliner' on here.

    I hope there wasn't any water in the exhaust.............or boat yard season could be longer than planned. :eek: I have to say that the stern of your boat looks completely different than mine. They certainly made some changes back there for the better. That's such a nice looking boat.

    Agreed Keeboater, that's the one thing I'm not thrilled about with this type of haul out (crane w/spreader bars) because the straps are level the boat comes out bow down. Fortunately, I've got a surge tube so it's never been an issue. Nonetheless, I'll be inspecting the turbo hot side before starting the engine to winterize.

    You can see the down angled skeg that Five Islands grafted onto the Bruno hull. It's not the most streamlined modification, so some day I may grind off the bottom paint and try to fair it better. Riskybusiness ran a 25x28 on his. Mine's got a 23x22 which comes to within 2" of the hull.

    That boat is a Holland. It is docked in downtown Mystic.

    My wife and I looked at a boat they were brokering a while back and received a tour of the facility. We are not expecting that and loved it. Very impressive. We saw this vessel and a couple others in various stages of construction. These boats are HUGE. There’s is some serious ocean and boat knowledge at that boat building facility.
    Linda and Steve were great. If your on DEBF Thank you for the tour.

    It’s a great spot. I took a tour with my wife a few years ago. Also didn’t expect the opportunity. Fast forward 3 years and I have a new Wesmac 46. Steve, Linda and all the crew are top notch!

    My brother-in-law had a Wesmac 46 built and we stayed with Steve and Linda at their house during the week for sea trials, which also happened to be their wedding week. Couldn't be nicer, more accommodating or knowledgeable boat builders and captains! And Ben was the man, keeping us well informed of all features of the boat during the build and launch. I just wish that I had the money to get my own!
