Oh my, that is awesome. Really don't have the words to tell you how awesome that is.

Pretty much the exact boat I would dream of having. BRAV-EFFING-O.

Thanks y'all! The boat and motor run great together. Insane and I mean insane amounts of responsiveness on the throttle! I got it up to 32.1 with me and another guy in it today! I'm kinda excited about the future of this rig! I guy I took out with me today has never been in one before and he's trying like heck to buy mine! Not for sale!

Just noticed this identical thread on mudmotortalk.... Seems a little odd, not bashing the boat, it looks great but I know some guys that pay good money to these sites to peddle their goods. Just a heads up if you're trying to get business

Probably just showing his boat off on 2 sites. Nothing wrong with that when you do this nice of a job. I haven't seen the first thing being peddled.

Holy hell, by the time you cranked that rig out I would still be deciding on where to cut my rake from the hull!! Skills.

How does it run shallow? We run a very similar rig (gator trax) with a Black Death and weight is the issue.. Awesome build! Your in the wrong business!

Awesome build, thanks for sharing. Looks like it would be fun, and a lot of bragging right in doing it all yourself.

Well sir you couldn't be further from the truth! If you didn't notice the very last thing I wrote in the post before yours is NOT FOR SALE!! There are lots of people on forums that want to do things like this in a DIY project and this is a little encouragement to all if those people. You are also incorrect I have this exact post on 3 forums. I typed it up on 1 forum and copied and posted it to the others. 3 different communities of people. I am proud of this boat as anyone would be. Thank you fellas for standing up for me. If anyone is thinking on doing a DIY boat build I'd be more then happy to help with what very small amount of knowledge I have!

It runs great shallow. Much shallower then my excel. The quick slick in sure helps when the boat starts bumping earth. I don't have any speeds yet in shallow water.

good to hear goose, like I said both times, great boat and great fit and finish. Didn't mean to come off rude, I've seen a few guys get burned though. I just had a mudboat built for me and would love to do it again but do it myself, there's always something you want to change after you get it off the trailer and in the water. I'm really wanting catwalks now that I've had my boat out for a few hunts. Keep up the good work and I hope to see another project from you when you get tired of this boat.
