    Venture mold being destroyed at Willis Custom yachts, they just bought out American Custom yachts and are destroying molds and jigs for cold molded Sport fishers, sad, but the price of progress, seems some one would want the jigs!

    SAD!!!
    ​​​​​​More destruction to follow.

                I'm going down to Salisbury Tuesday to turnover the two elevators we just completed in this baby. They added 2 more floors to it after the launch.

                    Duckfish,
                    It looks like this now, only slightly shorter. The one below launched a couple years ago.
