We're starting a new 22' boat for a client and thought forum members might like to see the process. Below the "fighting lady yellow" gelcoat gets started. The build list is very extensive with some greats options including auto pilot . . . more photos to come as the project evolves.

We move along at a pretty good pace. Right now, we're about 5 to 6 weeks from start to finish. That also include sea trials on the completed boat, and in some cases bottom paint.

This photo shows our production team rolling out the resin in the cloth. Our boats are all hand laid; no chopper guns are used for any portion of the Mojitos. This takes a lot more time but results in a stronger and lighter boat.

You're always welcome to visit. We usually have a lot going on in the shop. In addition to the Mojito's we also have XO Marine boats for commercial and law enforcement applications; our motor yachts; and a new 43' sailboat . . . there's a lot to see. We usually also have a least one boat in the water if you want to come out and take a ride.

Note the size of the stringers that are starting to be laid into position.

Are those stringers the same size in the XO 18 we just bought this week, sight unseen?

The photos for the 18 are not loading on my computer for some reason.   Are those at a host site I could go look at?

You mean the Tandem Island Hobie?  We launched it twice, and I put the beloved inflatable away.

We love the TI.   What a fun boat.    Little sucker scoots with about fifteen knots of wind, too.

Gringo:

Yes those are the same size stringers that are in the 18' XO that's headed your way. In fact, we use the same stringer material size even in our 16'. The result is a very solid boat designed to take years of commercial punishment.

Sorry I haven't posted the latest shots. We've been busy and the boat has progressed a lot. Here's a shot of the hull before the electrical or water systems was installed. You can see the live well pans in place just aft of the fuel tank.

Here's a shot of the helm that's starting to evolve. This custom build has some great equipment, including standard hydraulic steering plus trolling motor, Garmin GPS and autopilot, four battery AGM bank, and water proof ipod docking station.
