I lurk here quite a bit garnering knowledge and info from all you guys and gals and wanted to pass on my excitement... I got married this year and the small boat was no longer meeting the needs of a larger family soooo.... after much time and consideration we ordered a brand new YOUNG Gulfshore 20 flats boat. I'm excited as this is my first new boat. The folks at YOUNG Boats have been awesome to work with, I actually visited their facility when "Bugslinger" was having them refit his Mitzi skiff they are skilled craftsmen, fit and finish is awesome.
They started the boat on Monday 11/05, hopefully they will be sending me build pics along the way.

That might be the coolest layout I've seen on a boat. About to tear my actioncraft apart to repaint/ reconfigure and might look to do something like that. Really cool boat. Congrats!

should I post the build thread here in "Big Boat Bragging Spot" since its not a "micro" or is there another forum on here that might fit it better? I've been lurking here for a few years without posting much and dont want to step on any toes.

Wow, that's my dreamboat!
The Young Gulfshore 20 is the the coolest thing out
there in my opinion.
Young is well know for their customer service.
I'll be watching for the build pics! Congrats!

Congrats I too have one on order! Take delivery next month!!!
saw your boat Friday when I visited to inspect mine...like your color my buddy had an older maverick 21 that was sea foam green..similar to yours...always liked that color. My wife wanted the FLAG blue....I went with her wishes seeing how she let me buy the boat.

glad you posted your build pics, I just have not had time to do it. Good luck with the new boat.

Sweet the flag blue will look great! What motor did you end up going with? Next time I'm up there I will see if I can take some pictures of your boat and put them up for you if you would like?

Line-X keel guard done by Sarasota Line-X. Awesome crew and customer service. Brian even waited late for me to get into town Friday night so I could put the boat inside his shop and not have to park it in a hotel parking lot. They started the keel guard Saturday morning about 9am and had it done by 3pm. Great customer service.
