New Boat

Postby Slack Tide » Wed Nov 06, 2013 5:27 pm

I've posted pics of my friend's work before....this one goes to another level......
Believe it or not, this is a cutdown, 16' Oday sailboat......
This will do the trick for the Great South Bay diver shoots for sure.....

I think it would make a sick (super fast) grass boat too if you cut the rear out of it like a South Bay....but don't mess with perfect......

Why is it white? Never seen a white duck boat.

And hence, therein lies the debate....
This is a LAYOUT boat.....the constant misuse of the term "layout boat" to be a boat that you "lay in"..has caused guys to throw terms around inaccurately...
Like here on Long Island...if you say that you have a "clam boat"...it better be a decked over, flat bottom, garvey with a wheel house...not just some POS with rakes on it.
This boat is a light gray...as are all LAYOUT boats....

This boat was made by a good friend for his buddy and will be used primarily out east (as I am told)....I'm looking forward to an invite this season

The most stealthy layouts on the island are light grey almost a blue-ish white almost invisible especially on a overcast day. Most layouts are too dark or guys paint an ugly camo pattern.
No island leaft for Islanders like me.

We do have our own vernacular, don't we! :lol3: :lol3: :lol3:

Almost done, got the deck and coaming done primed and painted. Floor's done and painted. Mahogany grass rails came out awesome. I built the cockpit cover sunday and added cleats for bank peg and tie up as I leave it in all season. Paint the cockpit cover and grass it up. Then get some blood on it. :grooving:
