Would someone running a CG Certified db 23' x 9'10" Tour please send me the vessel name & official number so that I can get the approved plans to verify dimensions?

In addition to the request above:
Would someone with a 2016 or older 9'10" x 23' Inspected (COI), that utilizes similar construction (5/16" bolts, etc...), PLEASE give up the official number/name? Or tell me who has one so that I can go get it...
It may be possible to apply the five year rule to some of these issues.
11 months into this re-inspection process now! :banghead:

Nope, just paint to break things up and cover up more crater cracked welds . . .
Based on ANOTHER Inspection yesterday in our continued quest for a resolution with USCG. Interesting this inspection was the one year anniversary that we started this mission on. How many years can this process take?

Is anyone going to step up and PLEASE give us a boat to sistership to?

. . . May be more elusive than a set of CG approved plans for this boat!

... after more than a year the Official "Work List" has arrived.
#1 remains the plans; #3 & 5 address multiple cracked welds. Many are crater cracks, so we get to clean all, inspect, repair all cracked ...
The bottom splice gets a 4" clean path for the entire 23' run. Gonna be a bitch to clear Super Slick w/o damaging the weld!

Strongly suggest you review the record for your SPV and notify the OCMI of any discrepancy!

Is "An affirmative defense to a civil lawsuit... a fact or set of facts other than those alleged by the plaintiff..." ?

Does anyone else want to hear how "Any loss, injury or damage suffered by Plaintiff was caused solely by the acts or omissions
of third-party parties, including but not limited to, the U.S. Coast Guard." on this build ?

Yah, that’s the kind of stuff that calls for a naval architect. He will just determine that the boat is unstable (duhh).

Your money would be best spent on a CG approved hull.
I still think I-10 is the Mason Dixon line.

Has this boat been out of service this whole time? And where are you located?

Slidin Gator, "Your money would be best spent on a CG approved hull" That's what I bought! It is (was) until this CG835 was issued for the approved plans.

Gary S, It's been officially out of service since 31MAR2017, it "worked" one day! We've been trying to resurrect it all this time. It's up in AR, working with Sector Lower MS

Considering this is a current production, certified 2021 SPV:

What is wrong with the interior framing assembly shown?

Anyone know if this remains the current approved drawing for the gusset assembly in the previous pics?
Anyone have any 3/8" bolts in the framing?
