    I think you could be on the water with electronics, and engine installed for that

    not trying reopen old wounds, I know Davidson closed up shop. But was it do to poor workmanship "thin hull glass".

    I never found out why. you can PM me to not start anything on this tread

    The boat looks great. just too high for my pockets.

    The owner of Davidson was taking money for boats and not finishing them or doing poor workmanship. He has three ongoing law suits against him for issues with his boats.
    I met Clayton and his shop foreman Jason, both were shady characters.
    It's really sad, cause the boats could of been amazing like when Harold built them.

    Thanks to shedding light in this for me.

    I'm sure alot of of people wish that, but it's my understanding that I think all the previous molds from Harold and the Davis line of boats were destroyed by the new owner :(, which never quite made sense to me.

    Total shame to destroy molds of a proven winner of a line of top notch trailer boats........ possibly the best ever made! That's the part that pissed me off about the whole deal.

    Looks like this Bahia 25 is now dialed in and ready to go.

    If the Davidson Guy destroyed the Davis Molds - that has to be the most foolish decision I have heard in a very long time.

    If the new owner has a plug, then the molds are not needed. Maybe the old molds were not worth keeping. Kinda like throwing away your new girl's ex's clothes...

    guess it depends if any modifications where done to the original Davis molds for the new plugs; I could see from photos there were changes made to the top structures but I don't know if any mods were done to the hull.

    Molds do not live forever. Judging by the info in this post, if the previous owners did hsoddy work, then they probably didn't maintain their molds, Hence you need to pull a plug and an make a new mold.

    I would take a quality layup on a mid-tier hull over shoddy glass any day.

    The only changes that were made was the deck, they just rounded the the cabin. The hull is exactly the same as the Davis. As far as the glasswork goes, the lay up quality was geat there just wasn't enough glass in the bottom- the rest was built as heavy or heavier than what Davis was doing.
