    That looks like's it's going to be a sweet rig. How about a liitle more information about it so the rest of us can dream. 100 gal built in livewell sounds pretty cool, like the rails around the boat also.

    Jeff, who is doing the work for you or are you doing it yourself? Reason I ask My fishin buddy is wanting to have one built in the 26' range, I think he was talking about having it done down in Louisiana, but if this is in oklahoma might save him a few bucks...... Mac

    Is it going to be an airboat or a regular boat? What kind of motor? Great looking hull. Keep us posted on the progress.

    Looks like it should be a nice rig! Some of my cattin buddies are talking new boats, but everybody's looking at mod v's. Definitely would rather have the deep v. Maybe they need to pay close attention to this thread. Any plans to come back to LOZ or Truman? Would like to see myself in that boat cranking in some big Blues!

    I was wondering about a ball park figure of how much I might have tied up in one of those if I go to the local sheet metal shop with blue prints? I bet the aluminum price alone would be scary. Thanks for posting it, it looks very cool.

    Jeff ...Thats a good looking boat,I know what u mean about the cookie cutter boats,just won"t last.(lowe,ranger,etc)U get what u pay for,and for me the cost was worth it in every way.Still got about seven more years of payments,but the boat is a lifetime boat.Heck the hull has a lifetime warranty.(1/4inch):cool2: Keep ur nose to the wind ur powder dry and ur hull wet......PS.Have them build u a custom aluminum trailer to go with that boat.....

    I hope we are getting an airboat/regular boat maker in Oklahoma. Red River Mini's and Silver Dollar in Texas are currently the closest airboat makers. I don't know how to work on boats so if I buy one I would like to have the dealership close to take care of maintenance and repairs. That hull is similar to some of my friend's airboat hulls. Keep us posted we will be eagerly awaiting more pics and dealership information.
