Well, I am very happy to announce a new addition to the fiberglass hull lineup at ML Boatworks. I acquired the Vision 20 and 40 outboard tunnel molds from Shawn and they arrived today! Been cleaning them up, only to find a mint surface under the paste wax layers. I am working on prepping them for semi permanent mold release now, and should be ready to start tackling the waiting list soon! I am really happy to finally be offering race tunnels again, and the fact they have won numerous races at the international level is even better! More soon!

Yeah, these boats are too good of a design to not be offered. I'm just glad Shawn let me be the one to move forward with them!

Good Luck on the new adventure Mike, I may have to order one. I don't know where you find the time to do all that stuff?

Brad, Glass work comes in waves honestly. I don't get stacked up all the time. I currently do have 8 Visions on order, so there will be a burst at the beginning, but then it levels off. Wood kits are still my top selling items, at least until I get the gas mono design finished, and ready for a plug/ mold, and some of my sport hydros done for molds. There has been a ton of interest in those hulls being glass over the years. Just need to do it!

Well, I cannot say I am not very very happy with the first 20 and 40 bottom layups. Both done with carbon reinforcement. Stain Harness H4 carbon to be exact. This has made for a very very strong, and light bottom. I am also now using Duratec Hi Gloss gel coat additive, and I cannot say enough about the results. A more durable gel coat, that will polish up like a mirror. The pics below are before any kind of Polishing!  I cannot wait to start on the top decks for these two hulls. Here are some pics:
