The bilge/transom is already rigged pretty good. Other than hanging the trim pumps for the Offshore clamps and tidying up some wiring it's ready to go!

Looks great.Its amazing how things snowball on you,I started out this winter to lighten our Velocity up a bit.Well months later and ive tore the whole bat apart removed the splashell bigger,knee braces,transom and complete rerig.Thats only 22ft I cant imagine how much fun your gonna have.It is nice to get it to a blank slate and build it just how you want it.

Day 2 of work on the 28. Managed to swap my 2.4 from my 20" mid over to the Offshore clamp and 25" mid along with my lightweight cowl. I still have to marry 2nd Offshore clamp to the other 25" mid and mount the powerhead. Ran into one minor snag...I need to install longer lower mounting studs to reach through the High Performance adapter...and I need a 2nd High Performance adapter for the 2nd mid!!

Found out some really exciting news about my boat directly from Checkmate today. The boat was laid up light as a race boat with AME 4000 resin, the transom was beefed up for tripples, the boat was
pre-rigged for tripples and the bottom was blue printed!!!! The boat was originally sold to Dorchester Marine out of Charleston SC..

Yeah Baby!! Now we're talking!! Mike Combs is going to fax me the build sheet on the boat! Kip and Mike are the greatest!!

That is cool. The owner of Dorchester Marine, Benny Robinson, ordered my boat. I would like to find out if he's still around. He may know more about my boat...

I'll ask some local guys here in Summerville and see if he's still around. He closed the store a few years back, it's a car lot now.

That's really cool, totally great news. I know your trying to get it in the water at a reasonable cost. I always thought that boat should have a pair of 300's on it, but now I really think it should have tripples again. (I have an easy time spending other people money for them) It would be a bit of a pain to get it all set up since the rigging is for three is gone, but you really would have a one of a kind boat if you did it.

I know you must be thinking about it?
