Fill that bottom section in with a perfectly flat plug so you get a 12" wide pad

Call me crazy but i'd love to see the 13' footer with a jet pump and hot jetski motor for power!! Probably not enough room for a 2-stroker jetski engine but it's a cool thought, hell i'd even consider selling my jetski to buy one!

Going for dealers, changing their business model a bit. They sold to independent "distributors", no boat business experience was necessary. It was marketed as a side business or a retirement business.
Me, I'm going to hit the dealers, and hit the rental companies.

Check out, www.speedboatadventures.com tell me if that don't look like fun.

Those would be pretty sweet to rent up here in Grand Haven. You could easily spend the day exploring the Grand River, Spring Lake and even Lake Michigan on a calm day.
Looking forward to see how this grows!

The Persuader 130 hull mold is buffed, painted and ready for a wax schedule.

While my helper is having fun painting this mold, you can't see me. I'm on the other side of SCT's boat wet sanding the side. My back was hurting so it was a nice sit down job for me.
