This is an SoCalJetBoats.com Exclusive Build of Sam Carlos's 19' Cheyenne by Ralls Performance Marine in Santee, CA. Sam will be posting pictures and updates on this entire build. The hull is being finished up and it will be on display this weekend (Feb 21-23, 2014) in Parker, AZ at the Arizona Drag Boat Association races in front of the Bluewater Resort and Casino.

E-Ticket Boats, who laid up the hull in Lake Havasu, AZ, was kind enough to let me come down and shoot this boat before they put it on display this weekend. Pardon the dust as they were still finishing it up when I arrived.



What Sam has planned for this boat:

- 580ci BBC by Jimmie Van Dyke
- Pump by Jack @ MPD
- Bottom blueprinted by Bennett

First off no question is dumb because were all learning each and every day...

They use different supporst/bulk heads and then glass them together. They glass the top to the bottom from the inside all the way around with fiberglass. The outter seam around the entire boat is left for me to either put a rub rail on or cap it.. What do you guys think im gonna do? OF COURSE im capping it!!  O0 So it will be all smooth the whole way around. Ill post up pics when that time is here, it will be my first official cap job im doing  :o .. What better way to learn then on a brand new boat hahahaha  >:D
