Yes, I am familiar with the builder and the "Highliner." Its been a few years since this project started, but it seems like little to no info on these boats... Thought it was random to find a craiglist add posted in Hawaii of half finished boat. The Highliner website features no photos just computer drawings. Rad hull though...

Re: California Dive Boats -- the legend of Radon (pictures)

Brand new Wilson/Anderson 36, recently launched after a long and complex build. This is the 'last' Wilson of this size, the mold was broken up a few years ago. Too many details to list, but Congratulations to Ed, John and their crew for the completion of another out of the box custom workboat build.

Re: California Dive Boats -- the legend of Radon (pictures)

Photos of a recently completed custom Greenough 17. by Anderson Custom Boats out of Goleta. This skiff will ship out after sea trials to Hanalei Bay, Kauai, and is set up for commercial fishing over there. The two fuel tanks are built up IN the seats, she has a huge in-deck fish hold, and the boat is set up for trolling multiple rods at the same time. Another quality, imaginative build, purpose built for the customer's needs-

Re: California Dive Boats -- the legend of Radon (pictures)

The cost will be determined entirely on what you have them build you. These are fully custom boats, and while everybody seems to want something a little bit different, I'd have to guess that most boats are going out in the $30-40K range...

Re: California Dive Boats -- the legend of Radon (pictures)

BUMP. Thought I'd post some photos of one trick 21' panga, originally a center console of Mexican manufacture, converted to a pilothouse, F/V Jolly Rancher, up north on a Mission in the fog...
