If it's a 'glass hull you want, don't forget to talk to Jimmy White up at Lochloosa. They're impressive. :wink:

When it comes to a fiberglass hull, the wide nose Gilileo is the best in my opinion! :thumbleft:

Buddy is also a man of his word. After we shook on the deal, my new 13.5 was ready on the day we agreed to. He built it last July for $2400.00 This is my second Gillieo Love the way it handles. :old_glory:
