I enjoy building and love every project (this was my favorite to date) I love this boat and if I had and endless amount of room to store my projects I would keep them all. Unfortunately I do not and would like to make room for the next project. I do not need to sell this boat financially but would love the right person to give her a new home.  This boat gets a lot of positive attention.    She runs very smooth and handles like a sports car. Has a great sound without being to loud. I am able to deliver within a 100 mile radius from Brewster New York at no additional charge. Lastly I would consider interesting trades of certain sports cars example Porsche 911 or cayman. Thank you for looking. I  am happy to answer any questions or send additional pictures if needed.
