If my Fury build didn’t just start at ECC, I’d be all over this. Great boat, great price!

What are you having built?
EVOx “light”. All I do is fly fish and I need real shallow but able to get across big water to get there and back.

Super clean, very well taken care of VHP. Save a bunch of money and the 10 month wait and get on the water now.

If you leave her tied off to Brian’s dock with the keys in it, I’ll take it for a test ride to see what it’s really all about. Also while you’re at it, can you leave the trailer sitting at Louis’ too?

Ok, but pay attention to the tides, the flat's tower barely clears the BV rail road bridge if the tide is up :cool:
No low bridges to deal with at Tiki. Boat is in lift behind house, beer fridge loaded with guide beer.

Took her in to have some small gel coat dings repaired. She's looking great and running as good as new.

Where did you take it? Local?
Waterline Works in Seabrook. Tom is excellent. Very high quality work, not the cheapest shop around but easily one of the best. Mostly works on racing sailboats so my skiff was an easy job for him. He’s worked on a few of my boats over the years.
