    Classic build

    Hello,
    I live between the Rybovich and Merritt boat yards here in Florida. The best thing to do would be to buy an older vessle and refit it to your standards. Unless you want to build a new mold and start a new company.

    Valuable advice for Domenico

    I admire the bold ones:)
    I mean, hey, without the gutsy types, we wouldn't have all the great boat companies of today... and all those who are here no longer.

    Domenico, an old saying here in the US is this:

    Want a million bucks? Start out in the boat business with two million bucks!

    HA!
