A friend of mine got this boat at water front in Indy about 12 to 15 years ago he got it from the hull maker. He thinks they made 2 or 3 diferent sizes, this one was 43 inch what is it and are they still around

My guess is a Twincraft. If it is, they were originally made by John Finch then Steve Speas for a short time. The molds were then sold to a guy on the west coast (can't remember his name off-hand) who made them for a while before closing down during a divorce.

I did a search on this site and didn't come up with much as I was looking more for the current owner of the molds.

That would have been the late Steve Speas then. John Finch was also involved with it.

Mike., they're still good boats yet today. If I see one for sale I'll let you know. About the only other one I know of similar to it would be the Cal-Craft.
