Default Persuader Boats Buys Wahoo Powerboats.

This is kind of a big deal for me, and it took a lot of work to make it happen. I've been putting this together for most of the summer, but I finally signed the papers yesterday.
But here it is,
Coop and Persuader Boats has purchased Wahoo Powerboats.

Wahoo, has been building the boat that used to be called St. Marten, Paradise, Fantasy, Etc. Now I, or rather, my crew, will be building these famous little 13 footers. Along with an 11ft model as well as a 15 footer.

You can get a look at the boats by going to www.wahoopowerboats.com

While everyone is off barbecuing or boating or whatever this weekend, I have three projects at the shop that need a lot of love. SCT's boat, my 170 mold, and the molds for 13.
I've taken my pain meds, my handful of Advil, called my helpers, gonna grab a McBreakfast and head to the shop.

The molds for 15 are due sometime next week, and the 11 should come right after that.
And, I need to start working on a new website later tonight.

It is the child successor to the Classic Playmate GT. It is a couple generations down from the original, but I think they came up with a really good look for the boat.

Here is a picture of the 13, and the 15 together.

This bottom can be traced all the way back to the MX-13.
