    I am surprised you don't have an open transom. Are you hard mounting that C18 or soft mounting it? I have seen more and more of the commercial guys shifting over to soft mounts nowadays.

    Its my oldest sons boat. I took some photos the other day , not much for new construction that's been on here lately. No open sterns here, everything is set over the side . Hard mounted to 3/4 inch aluminum angle.Mounts would have raised the engine another 3 inches or more, just not enough room in a skeg boat for them. He's got a nice set of Cat mounts if any one is interested. His younger brother built the same boat last year, hard mounted,heavy engine beds, super smooth. I don't know what he will do for rod holders, may be all thats left to do.

    Damn good looking boat. I love that he got the big straight 6 engine in there. What's the theory behind the two sets of lifting rails instead of one?

    His brother has the same boat, and we were trying to cut down on some of the spray. If you run the rail all the way forward, its above the water, and the spray goes right out below it, and makes it a wet ride on deck. I looked at lot of pictures of his brothers boat going, and thought we would try this. The rail is more like you would see on a speed boat.Its put on with plexus, so it could be ground off if he doesn't like it. Also traps wont be catching on them. May be the new rage, who knows. These 2 boats are more heavy than most of the 42's that have been launched, 8 barrels of resin in the build, 500plus fuel. and heavy engine and gear.

    Have you heard about any issues with the cylinder liners that Cat may be having?

    Looks good Doug, I like it. Did he go with a ZF or Twin Disc?
