Congrats on the flip! It looks huge!! Is this the longest Jumbo ever?

It might be, the boat measures 26' 11.75", wife and I just measured it.  I think Dave said his measured 26'10".
If I take my rub rail to the bow it will add another 1" or so, just breaking the 27' mark.  On the west coast the bar restrictions are typically 20/22/24/26.  common on an ebb chop to have a 22 or 26 foot restriction and the ocean is still fish able, so now I can go look for my self and make my own decision.

Heck, if I make the PH taller it will look like the Trump tower. I'm 6'4" and need some head room so I don't brain myself every time I go through the door Huh?

I'm 6'3" and mentioned this issue to Renn ..and he said "What?  Are you too special duck?"

Me:  Narrow cut-out for the main, then put kicker on a bracket on one side.  Trying to fit main and kicker into one big cut-out is silly...

I would build the gunnels at least 8" wide at the back fishing deck.  If you build it by the book, it is awkward to lean against them because of the side flare. 

That makes me glad I went to 12".  I've been in boats where the sides flared out and I never could get comfortable.  I still might need some coaming pads to really get comfortable, but I'm going to see if it bothers me like it is first.

I completely agree, its the most amazingly supportive forum I have ever seen on the net.
The most overriding important outcome for most forum members is to see others succeed, its very unusual to see, particularly amongst males.
I have beem beavering away on my boat for years and I have to say that with out the help and support of the guys here, I would have given up some little while back.

Cheers

Jon

Now if the dealer would hurry up and get the motor mounted . . . the anticipation is killing me. 

At least the salesman did seem familiar with the general hull shape, he new it would rise smoothly to plane instead of pointing up first, but I don't think he quite gets how light it is.

Great looking boat there!
You'll fly with the 115. I have an old suzuki 115 on my 24' wheelhouse Jumbo and hit 31 knots with full tank of fuel and 4 guys aboard.

If I could go back, I'd have listened to Nolan and B&B and built faster and been fishing 2 or 3 years ago.
