Now that you have refreshed my memory, I do recall the building and seeing some new boats being worked on there as the bridge coming from north gave a good view of it. But for the life of me, I still can't recall ever seeing or paying attention to the name. But I do remember Fleetwings made in Cocoa. They were much smaller boats.

That's a pretty boat.
Interesting. The beam looks rather narrow. I will look at them some more on YW but Mules comments on the cracks is a little scary as I tend to enjoy rougher waters than most. Thanks for posting the link.

This was on two boats. Do not exclude the pack. Just look on deck and if possible look up from the underside. I just heard from the broker that this was not unsusal.
