    Busy year! Starting my 3rd 25 Liberator

    This year has been crazy with building and selling boats! I've put together, painted, and rigged three 25's, three 21's, and one 22 Liberator so far. That's pretty good for me since I do everything by myself. I am now officially a senior citizen as of last week (65) so I don't move as fast. I got it off the trailer and on the cradle today. Bare hull with tanks is 1847 lbs. Boat is all composite except for the running surface which is balsa cored. Also has the center pod which eliminates any hop or porpoise. This 25 will get all the cool stuff that my green 25 got earlier this year. Fully capped front and rear with my custom back end added. I'll have my Russian fiberglass guy help me with the glass work. I'll cut and fit everything and he will glass it in. He is faster and knows more about laying glass up for strength. This boat is not pre-sold, so colors and motor choices are still open. Here's a few pics.

    Randy. I think you may sleep less then President Trump. I am not in that boat market on my Burger King pay checks. But twin 4.6 v-8 mercury's. Some Red, Orange and Yellow over mostly white hull would be great. You sell it early next year. Buyer grows into bigger boat needs in 3 years. Second buyer gets it and loves it. After 5 years he goes thru a lifestyle change and has to sell it. Perfect time for me see it come available in 2026 when i get my Burger King retirement buyout package. I buy it and boat off into my wonder years.

    Something like this would be nice. I think this basic theme would be great in 2026 when it gets into my garage.

    There are very few guys out there that work as consistent as Randy does. Especially for someone who doesn't need to work at all-he's still a machine.

    I've been cutting out panels for the rear of the boat. Floor panel for storage, bulkheads, knees, etc. 3rd pic shows a base plate inside a hatch to screw the bilge pump to. Last pic is a side bulkhead brace. All parts are composite

    Back to working on the 25 again. Got alot of the rear compartment set up and ready to glass in. Also got the front all capped and starting the body work. after glassing the front, I wrapped it with foam which I sliced to creat a more curved radius. After filling it, you can see my glass guy covering it again with another layer of glass.
