Strick-That is an amazing boat. You really nailed down all the requirements with the addition of your well made floatation bracket for top notch performance.

The mold is made with MDF and cracked open once the part is laid up.

Strick's boat sure does ride nice!! It's more maneuverable than mine and better balanced. I think moving the tank forward with the batteries, console, seat, 30 gallon baitwell, made a big diference. His boat jumps on a plane and hits 42mph with 2 people and gear.

I think Keyscruz put one on an 18, with a 150 E-Tec! I told him to make sure he was attached to the kill switch lanyard before he nailed the throttle on that thing!

He did the bracket just right on that yellow boat! I like to think the reverse chine gives it a little extra bite around the corners and a little extra lift on the take off. Could be my imagination . . . but it's a beautiful riding 20.
