24 foot boat, 65 knots with a Mariner 175...!  Really a classy looking boat.

Do any of the Alaskan guys know this guy? Gerald.

best,

I think he's down in Sitka or Ketchikan and I've never met him. He does some awesome work and I've read a couple of his other projects on the hull truth. I'll have to keep my eyes pealed for one of these this summer.


Here's a build of one of his boats https://www.thehulltruth.com/boating-forum/267910-another-build-thread.html
