    Custom Boat Bank Lenders?

    Can anyone give me a bank name that will work with customers on a non NADA listed boat? Boat is a 2012, brand new. Have only found ONE lender but they want the boat 100% finished and ready for an appraiser to verify HIN, trailer and motor VIN before a check is cut. Of course the broker doesn't want to build a custom boat to a customers specific specs unless it's nearly paid for...

    Here is about three days after it happened, the bruising had just started to show, it got worse:

    Thought I had just bruised them real bad. Bruised purple and yellow from my elbows to about halfway down my forearms. Worked three more weeks after the injury then got home and the wife made me go see a doctor. The Doc was not thrilled with me waiting 3 1/2 weeks. He did a quick exam and said everything looks ok, and if you broke your arms there is NO WAY you could have worked thru it. Then he got the X-rays. I'm back at about 90% strength. The first couple days was the worst. I had the strength of a 9 yr old girl and the worst part of my workday was putting on socks and taking them back off at night. Also very difficult to use Charmin during the first week.

    Been very busy. Got twin babies on the way, a boy and girl. Lots of offshore time on the anchor boat, broke both my arms 4 weeks ago and I have a new Stroker being built. A friend had his Ford truck and Stroker stolen last week on the east coast. Boat was found stripped clean and his truck is still missing. I will look into that system for my boat.

    GPS Tracking
    Getting a new boat soon and I'd like to install a GPS tracking system so I could find the boat if stolen. Anyone point me in the right direction?

    The Stroker I have being built is going to be all black, similar to this one:

    The 99' struggled to hit high nineties. The new one should hit triple digits pretty easy and top out at around 105-110mph.

    Too bad you can't stay longer. The monster snook bite has started and I get home July 6th in the evening.

    Congrats! For a minute or two I wasn't sure if it was a Whaler, but then I saw the tiny sticker on the side!

    Guy bought my 2005 21 Contender based only on the pictures. After the sale he paid me to tow it to him also. About 900 miles. When it pulled up in his driveway was the first time he'd seen it.
