    What he said!!! Except I think your specialty is customizing whatever is thrown your way!

    I said it before..... you are truly the Chip Foose of the boating world...... or the West Coast Customs of boats!!

    You need your own show..... seriously!

    More like a 2030 Whaler. Hell, a 2030 still might not have all those goodies!


    I was honestly just wondering yesterday what happened to you Barret. Good to see another post from you........ incredible work dude.... just incredible! :appl:

    Awesome! What an incredibly fortunate 12 year to be involved in helping out on his own boat with such talented people to show him how and what it takes to get it done. Fantastic build out! Thanks for showing your fantastic work.

    Once again you've shown us your talent. Obviously the best custom boat builder out West. I wouldn't have dared to choose that camo pattern SeaDeck, but you made it work. Thank you for showing us what can be done. You innovations are very inspiring.

    Once again Barrett, a work of art!
    I hope soon that your dad and you get back into the boat building business so you can make us a boat built on the west coast for the west coast boaters. Something like this...

    Boat looks incredible. Awesome work. How comfortable is it to drive? I only ask because it looks like the steering wheel is located almost below your knees.

    Thanks for all the compliments guys, it means a lot. The most fun part of the project for me was watching 12 year old Riley working on his boat. It was either work on the boat or summer camp, it was an easy decision for him. Watching him pick up things and start doing them really reminded me of myself when I was younger learning from my dad and the guys in our shop. It's one thing to do a project with someone, its another to develop a friendship that you care about. One thing for sure, I would hire Riley in a heartbeat if he ever wanted to come up and work in the desert. He's an awesome kid that's going to go far in life.

    Riley fell asleep with his respirator on, I couldn't help myself. Stuff like this always makes projects fun

    There's a lot of people that I need to thank that all made this project happen. First and foremost is Bruce, Riley's dad. I am so fortunate to have had the ability to really have some fun with this thing and to trick it out. Bruce and I have the same mentality, clean, functional and badass. His enthusiasm really kept this project moving and I learned a lot working with him. I couldn't have asked for a better person to build a boat for.

    My dad was a huge help to me during the project. There is no substitute for having someone with decades of experience and thousands of boats under his belt helping out. He was always there to remind me of how big of an idiot I was for doing all this to a 13 whaler. I couldn't have done this boat without him.

    The finish work is due in large part to Pancho. Pancho used to work in our tooling department when Cabo was around. He is an absolute perfectionist and one hell of a craftsman. He was a huge help sanding and spraying the hull and deck.

    Steve Devoll from SD Fab out of Little Rock did an awesome job building all the stainless parts. He is a wizard when it comes to solving issues and he really pulled through for us at the end when we were trying to figure out the shifter. His work is second to none.

    There are many many people that lent input into the project that I need to thank. We tried to embrace as many ideas as we could and the end result really reflects that. This boat really turned out bitchin thats for sure!

    Gil Sea Dek is backed by an adhesive. It's essentially peel and stick. You have to be perfect when you stick it on because once that adhesive is on, it doesn't come off. It took me two hours to peel off the temporary pads I put on the poling platform and the footwell. It's cushy stuff and really looks pretty good.

    For the custom pads we went with a two color combo. Sea Foam base with snow camo on top. I was skeptical at first but am really happy with the way it turned out. Its awesome stuff to stand on, you won't slip when you're fishing and it doesn't hold any heat.

    It's actually surprisingly comfortable to drive. When two people are on board we sit to the sides and just leave the center portion of the boat open, no issues at all. It's not too low and not too high. You could lean back and drive it if you had a back rest and it would be the perfect height for your feet. We tried to keep everything as low and unobtrusive as possible. We made the pod so I would only end up with 1/4" between the rear mount helm and the fuel tank; we cut it as close as we could.

    I was just on that boat last month in Ft. Lauderdale, nice rig! As for the boat building business, your wish might be granted very very soon. I can't let things out quite yet but the old man and I are working on a little something...

    Say whaaaaat!?!?!

    Now that's a tease and a half!

    I guess some congrats are in order..... cant wait to hear the rest of this!

    Somehow I don't think quality or customer service will ever be lacking with anything you or your dad will be a part of.

    Hurry up and spill the beans!!!

    Amazing project and great lesson for that boy. He helped make it come true not just handed to him.
    Great gift in many ways. Bay Bassing rig for sure.
