I wish I could say. Probably a month, maybe six weeks?

It’s a light gray hull with Chevy white deck and console.

I spoke to Rose this morning. She said approximately 6 to 8 weeks for completion....from the day they pop the mold.

I’m hoping one of those in the background is my Heron. Looking good Walt!

What power is that ETEC? And why did you go that route? I love the warranty, but just wanting to know if you have personal experience with it.

It’s a 90. While I don’t have any personal experience with it, I have 3 friends running 225’s and their experience has been good.

My reasons were cost, weight, warranty, and recommendations from Salt Marsh due to their demo model having one and getting great numbers.

Driving down Friday to bring her home.

If you don’t mind.....see if there’s a seafoam green Heron 16 on the line.

$300 deposit on Sept. 6th

Sprayed the mold on Feb 18th

....waiting on Rose to tell me it’s out of the mold. :)

I moved up the list due to a few folks backing out or giving up their turn for one reason or another. Hoping for a mid-April delivery date. I’m documenting the build here:

Man, I hope it speeds up. I have a long wait to go.
One way I passed the time....start researching and acquiring:

Pushpole, trolling motor, electronics, anchor, anchor pin, safety equipment, etc.

Walt....sorry to hijack your thread. Back on topic...we need more pichers of your Heron. :)

No apologies necessary. This is more exciting than childbirth... maybe the second one anyway.

Snapped a few while I was picking it up. Long drive back. I’m going to sleep a bit tomorrow.
Can’t use it for a while due to my wrist reconstruction surgery has me in a cast for up to six weeks.

Boat came out great, trailer worked beautifully for the 9 hour drive. Tight fit in the garage, but it’s in. Might have to shorten the tongue a few inches.
