You sure about the year and hull number? Hull 7 should be a '98.
Thanks -you are right. It is a no floor but Hull is 612 - based thankfully on info from this forum on how to read HIN#s. My wife researched prior and wrote the copy and thought hull #7 referred to the "No floor" design not an actual hull #. She's made the correction in the title.

Chris Morejohn left before 2003, so how would he know that's the lightest whipray ever made?

View attachment 28610 View attachment 28611 Hull #7 is a 1998. It was Ted Juracsik’s boat, which sold to Snookdaddy, then sold on this forum in February 2018. It’s now in Galveston.

Bought it from John Kipp, original owner and he was great buddies with Chris Morejohn. But now that I think back, and my wife's misconception over the meaning of Hull #7, I'm thinking it could have been a part of that so I have had her remove that reference.

Didn't Kipp have 2 whips? I had a '98 blue one I thought was Kipp's too. Chris provided a different provenance for mine but the old paperwork showed Kipp and some of his clients also recognized it.

Hull #7 was mine until Stevie bought it earlier this year. I bought the boat from Ted juracsik, who bought the boat new in 1998..

According to Chris Morejohn, Hull #7 (Stevie's Whip) is the, or one of the lightest produced during his tenure at HB..

Do you have any pictures of the skiff while at rest in the water in it’s current condition? Please post them if possible. Thank you.

Howdy Larry, long time no see... and hope your sale goes well...

I used to see him every day at the Flamingo boat ramp as each of us were setting out or returning with anglers aboard. In those years he was running an 18' waterman... and is first rate - all the way.
