Beautiful looking boat! Can we get some specs on it?

Who is the owner? Can we have him come on board to ask some questions?

Well done sir!

I have a question for you, what and where is the sheer line? I really like this, sounds extremely nautical.

The sheer line, is at the top of the sides of a vessel :-)
(She's about 72" wide at the chine, which is where the sides meet the bottom)

Hi Rich,
Sorry mate, none for sale in the USA yet. (however if you happen to be in Brazil, I can hook you up)
If there is enough interest, we are looking at building a limited number of units here in Louisiana.

Darn, your name brings back memories. I was in the service with a gentleman named Joe Delgado, I think he was from PA though.
