Talk to him a few weeks ago. He is working on a few skins for me.

I haven't personally seen his work, but I've heard good things. I have a friend who contacted him on BriEOD's suggestion. He called and spoke with Jim. At that time, a couple weeks ago, he was booked out until May I believe.

Jim made some skins for me a couple of years ago. Yes, it did take some time and I did have to add some foam padding to the motor box to make that skin fit, but the work was great and I would use him again.

Just got my skins from Jim. They look amazing, I'll post some pics if i can figure out how to get them back on.

I'll pass this on as fact and nothing more than what was told to me first-hand. Hopefully this may encourage or discourage one's decision of planning.

I talked to Donnie B last month about redoing an old boat. We got to the skins and he conveyed to me that he once used Jim F to do his skin work as part of his entire package for reconditioning a boat. Donnie's contention is that he has divorced that arrangement and has advised folks that Jim took a little more time than was coducive to the refurbishment package. Be advised that Jim is slow, regardless of why or how slow. And I am sure everyone considers another point of view to be relative. Judge for yourself.

I'm just telling it like I have heard it from said details. No other intent. I't's each to their own biz...

To answer the first poster's inquiry, I understand that he does good work.

Can you tell us how slow? It's all perspective. Are you talking 6 months or 6 weeks?

I will not speak for anyone esle, but I sent mine around the beginning of November and just got them back. That being said, I told him that I was in no hurry and that I did not need them until about the second week in April.

I spoke with him about a week ago he mentioned that summertime, this one in particular, is a pretty slow for him. I am thinking about sending the rest of my skins for him to work on over the summer.

Nicely done. I spent over $2200 having mine done but they look as good as stock.
