We build these bad boys in southern california. My glass shop is in Hemet CA and they have done all my boats for years. We bring the hulls down to San Diego and rig them at INMAR MARINE GROUP.
All suzuki four stroke power right now. Hydraulic steering, all the goodies to get your rolling.

The bottom tool is a cathedral hull similar to the Greenough-Anderson boats. My tooler Chuck Guy has more info. He gave me the bottom mold finished, we produced a deck. It is not a splash, my hull will not fit into the Greenough bottom mold.
Fully linered, self bailing, 30 gallon belly tank, huge bow locker casting platform.
100% vinylester lamination, no shitty polyester resins.
We are doing PVC Foam core in the decks now.
Console can fit a 15" plotter. Inside full door access you can put a porta potty in.

It is a simple surf skiff. Price point and fishy.

I have one in florida, and another for sale in seattle wa with dealers.

$22,000.00 on a McClain Single Axle Trailer ready to roll- fred hall show boat

Call me anytime for a ride. Boat is down at the shop in Otay Mesa.

We are building the 177 Surf Skiff, I have a 23 CC in tooling, a 31CC i got from larry smith and we purchaed the 35 Seahunter tools also to build. We are busy.

The 23 is a Contender 23 open "style" bottom we are using, deck will be a standard center console layout.
2 livewells- 1 in the transom, and 1 in the floor.
Console will be the same as skiff design
Power: single 250/300 or twin 150s.
Pricing: comparable to Seafox / KeyWest/ Bluewater pricing

Bottom is waxed and ready to pull mold from, we are finishing up the transom motor box area this week.

When we run the plug, i will load some pictures

    Nice looking boat, Mike! Congrats! Looks like a fish killer.

    Looking forward to seeing pics with scales & blood all over that shiny interior. You got friends lined up for a ride yet?
