only thing left is to put the rails in and do a little finish work. Both hatches are done, Jason paid the 50.00 to up grade the rails from wood to carbon fiber, then bought the phantom hatch that also fits the Apache hull, so he can completely change the looks of his boat fast. Or detail the open cockpit like a master piece and keep it safe by running the boat with the closed cock pit canopy. the rails are only rough cut But I will be putting them in soon. then i will take boat to new painter and let him see what he is getting into.

We already have another Apache to do. will be spraying its deck and hatch tomorrow. This boat will be ready to go right after you say you are ready, the rails are cut out for it and i will be picking up rail tape tomorrow. i thought I had a roll But I did not. we are also finishing this C-54 that is the boat to beat in one of the most active classes in racing..Super boats that allow twin Gas engines, or in this boats case Inline twin. I will also take your boat to painter tomorrow to let him see what he is up against, I will tell him Candy type blue, (house of colors) with some striping or american flag front with eagle on the back sides, just to get his input and Idea of a price tag. When you actually choose what you want i will take him pictures to go by, right this minute we are still in a test the waters mode. These C-54 are 275.00, 50.00 more for double lay up when the inline is used, 50.00 more for carbon fiber rails, Not needed but look better then std wooden rails and are stronger, and 50.00 more for colored gel coat, So to have the boat to beat in super boat in the color you want made with carbon fiber and carbon fiber rails it's 425.00 on a 54' hull. pretty hard package to beat. As far as service goes....Jason how has our service been?

Your service had been outstanding! You have been more than professional and describe the build piece by piece as you were very professional I wouldn't go anywhere else. The boat looks amazing can't wait for finished product without you I would've been lost with this build. I can't wait to
start my next hull. Maybe a c-54

I can not see your pics, but i do have the ones you sent me by e-mial, And yes we are spraying the deck and hull for the next Apache we are building. yours is done other then rails. We will also be joining the C-54 tomorrow, then Wednesday we will spray the hull of the next Apache in the day and do the ring mold that night, Also spray the Orange C-54, And get started on a hydro that is on stand bye. Doing more boats at once is best as many steps on each one has drying time. But after just getting re started we are back in gear and making and selling boats,

So we did just fine in the storm, the deck and hatch for the next Apache is sprayed, And will be laid up tonight. Lisa is joining the Blue C-54 right now, We already ran the bead around the out side to hold it together. Now the deck and hull will be glassed together on the inside for a very strong bond.

C-54 just needs some detail work and rails put in. The Apache hatch is getting done now, and we sprayed the hydro as well.

When Lisa says hand made she means it, even more on the details of things. It would be nice to see the boat section in RCU come to life like this 70" Apache is doing, the Hull is done with the deck ring already in place and the deck,transom and rails will be fitted soon. jason I did just send a E-mail on the box. once I get that and your boat back. I will put Rails in yours as well and they will both be done. I hope to ship this one in a box/boat case as well.

Hey Jason I did find a local painter that would work. He is in Melbourne so I could drive the boat to him then pick it up and send it to you..Artistic Signs Inc. His name is Dale. He has been painting for a long time. Good Vibe from him. take a look at his site and if you want make contact with him and let me know what you think. He paints motorcycles and says he has painted some boats. But I would love to really bring him into the model boating world.
