well, sold one, traded the other for a big black Bentley Mulsanne- just what I would have bought if he paid me cash. I'm putting a small ad in the duPont Registry for boats, so maybe that will bring in some more business.

Good for you!

Well done Dale, and a nice set of wheels to boot.......although with servicing and fuel bills you are going to run up,i hope you manage to get another commission real soon!
Congrats - very well done!

Superb! The hardest part is usually the start.
Congrats man, enjoy that Bentley
This new ship here is fitted according to the reported increase of knowledge among mankind. Namely, she is cumbered end to end with bells and trumpets and clocks and wires. It has been told to me she can call voices out of the air or the waters to con the ship while her crew sleep. But sleep though lightly. It has not yet been told to me that the sea has ceased to be the sea.--Rudyard Kipling
Congratulations on the sales. The new owners are getting quality runabouts; they should be very pleased also. Are you now starting a new build? If so, tell us about it. Will it be the same hull, or do you have new ideas?
V good. About time! They are well worth it.

Congratulations. They are indeed beautiful boats that you built. Is that all you intend to build is runabouts?
Amazing. Congratulations. The picture above is remarkable. I'd love to see more if you have them.

A good old WHOOPY to you!!
But just asking, if you had so much difficulty in selling roundabouts, maybe it's an idea to just go do some marketing and find out what type of boat would be a seller.
Just saying you would have the same fun buiding, yet you would take a lot less of 'gambling' to find a buyer.
You got what it takes to build a great boat, why not build, e.g. a custom boat. As far as I understand, you still own one, just go and show it to as many people as you can, and than tell them you can build excactly what they want.
And you will have a show piece to show them what you skills are.
Oh well I did throw my two cents in again, good luck
