Found one in stock with 0 waiting time. Happy I went with a gator tail hull . My only complaint with boat is the floor how its revived in , I wish it was slug welded . But I understand it takes more time to do that and it easier/quicker to revived it but I will get it slug welded on my own

Why do the rivets bother you? I like it for easy access to under the floor if you need it.

I hate them because it's cheap and easy. Why spend time making the boat excellent then skimp on the floor. Plus, they usually loosen up and rattle over time. I put rivetnuts in my cross members then countersunk the floor to accept a 1/4-20 x 3/4 flat head socket cap screw. That way it's flush and retains the ability to be removed.

Why would i need to get under my floor?? I don't have storage there. And sometime or another they will come loose and that will drive me nuts to hear a rattling noise . Nothing bad against gt I just rather have it slug welded . Only time I would need to get under floor is if I have a whole in boat and at the point it's notning to re drill slugs out and take floor up

Negative fuel hose is in one half pipe along the side and nab wires in the other side half pipe .. I even if so what problems what that be ? If fuel hose is messed up wouldn't you need a new one? If wire is messed up just buy new wire it's not much to replace 17 ft of wire or fuel hose

Shouldn't get dents if you riding in stumpy places should have 3/16". Bottom instead of 1/8 . It all goes back to where and what you use your boat for

He has 3/16 bottom, and more bracing than just about any boat you will ever see...
