Just dont mess with the ratios of the epoxy. I know how mixing ratios tend to get stronger as drinking progresses. Increasing the epoxy ratio will result in head aches of another sort. Cheers

That's a pretty sweet looking boat!

Is that a production motor bracket or something he built Joel?

That is stunning! I intend to start building this same boat within the year, but without the jump cabin. I'd sure love to see more pics.

What would be a ballpark estimate on the cost of that beauty?

Is that boat to its left the CS23's big sister?

I'd love to see some more pics of that boat.

We need a couple high rez shots of that boat. Awesome build time dude! That's fast! I would love a nice photo essay of this boat and it's details.

Great job!
