^^^ I agree completly. I find it funny that so many people think JImmy White hulls are so superior. There are builder's out there that still hand lay boats. Price point is why you dont see alot of exotic materials other then chuck Hawk Step hulls. Beautifful boats.

Make sure the hull has been sitting on a flat concrete surface for a few days and then set your jacks while still on it. This will force the bottom as flat as possible.
