    Bones has been working on developing it's first boat for some time now. I won't bore you with all the details, you can go to www.bonesboats.com for all the info on us, design and everything else.

    Just wanted to take you guys through step by step and show you how we made it happen. It starts with all the parts created by a computer driven cutter.

    Then parts out sent out to be "bent" accordingly.

    Then we get the jiggin' going!!!

    This next one is by far my favorite. It really says it all about our structural integrity.

    Next, we'll be going into the AL plate being added. As you can see there is alot of precision and attention to detail that goes into a Bones. Thanks a lot for visiting!!! More to come soon!

    Before we roll her I'd like you to see some detail shots. Pay very close attention to how tight every piece fits together. Maybe the most critical portion of any build.

    Other aluminum boat builders should be terrified...........That looks to take quality to a whole other level. Love to see what the 22' pricing is. And one finished. Beautiful looking product.

    as a person who has been involved in the fabricating industry for the last 25 yrs full time, and an owner of my own company. I can say that I like your boat. your shop, and the quality of work that you are doing on this project,
    first thing I look at is your shop. it is clean and well organized, the base material is clean and all tolerances on fitting the parts are excellent.
    the welds are clean and finished correctly, start right, finish right.
    this looks like a quality job, and anyone should be fully satisfied having you as their supplier of an aluminum boat.

    good luck and keep up the good work
