One hell of a nice job with the design, fab work, and welding. Very clean lines. Looks great.

looks great, I am thinking about doing a 20' soft top, with a fish deck. Where did you get your sides?

Sorry guys for the lag in updates... I am waiting patiently (not real patiently!) for the shop to open up a spot in their busy schedule to finish up the engine install and stick steer fabrication... should be soon I hope. After that, it's home for paint and further rigging. Good things take time I keep telling myself!

Picked up the project from Riddle Marine this weekend.. Progress! Phil has been blessed with a lot of business this summer but it was worth the wait! Excellent job, thank you! Raptor engine and jet installed. Hydraulic reverse installed. Exhaust 2 into one muffler system installed. Essential electrical systems installed. Air rides installed. Center stick steer in.... a quick river run had her humming along at 4200 RPM WOT. Now that I have her home, It is paint time and floors next. Windows and gadgets to follow.

Things are moving along. I got the floor in this week. I got the high deck rails back from the Powder coater and back on the boat. The engine, jet, stick steer, hydraulic reverse, exhaust system, sand trap, air compressor, seats, and dash wired and working.
Now she is off to the paint booth today... I might actually get to go fishing before the world freezes over!

The 440 seems like a good choice. It has more power than a 6.0 LY6 which was very popular and is still a good choice. The LS3 is more expensive and less powerful. The 6.2 DI is a solid choice but more expensive. The Raptor 460 is 2K more than the 440 and the Supercharged LSA and Raptor are out of my budget. So the 440 Raptor made the cut for me. It pushed the boat to 4250 RPM WOT on its test run. Time will tell but hopefully, it was a good choice.
