I haven't posted in awhile and I'm not well known around here, but I have something that yall might like to check out. I worked for this company StanCraft Boat Co. awhile back, they build custom high performance mahogany runabouts up here in idaho, and they just finished an order for a wake boat. It looks pretty sweet, but throws a less than stellar wake...

i,m interested in the paintwork how does it hold UV protection?
2part paint?

the hull sides/deck are all varnished, not painted. Something like 10+ coats of an Epifanes product, and you have to flat block the whole thing between each coat, and then its buffed like fiberglass. But its pretty amazing how well it holds up- it looks new for 6-7 years, then they're usually refinished...

Very niche market for it. Could go from 40k or the one random guy who falls in love with it and it sells for 200k. Beautiful boat though.

Did they take it out on Coeur d'Alene yesterday and wakeboard? Hopefully I'll have a chance to see it in person sometime. Usually have a few Stancrafts up at the wood boat show Labor Day weekend at Priest. Do you know which Ilmor was used? You guys make some incredible wood boats.

Cool, I would actually love to have a closed bow ski boat made from mahagony.

Man, I'll bet that is a $100k plus boat all day long with the amount of hours building it...

aha,...yes i know varnished,...isn,t that just not painted on?JK.
Done a lot of Riva,s and Boesch and super Van Craft,..but i didn,t know this one was polished....pretty time consuming.Nice work.
A combi of 2K and 1K Varnisch can hold up to +/- 10 years,but the mahagony fades,from UV light.

my bet is that it went for upwards of $150k...
I'm dying to know which motor went in- they do mostly MV10s on their boats, but it could have easily been a Mercury or Volvo big block with a v drive.
