Jim Smith Boatworks Update
By Dale Wills
I had the pleasure of speaking with boat builder John Vance at Jim Smith Boatworks last week and also the opportunity to check out his current projects under construction. Crews were busy on two projects and both were Walk Around designs. The largest is the 60′ Walk Around and it will be nearing completion in the next 6 months. Here are a few images I was able to capture and we will keep you updated on this unique project.
Here is a photo gallery of the building process
August 14, 2015 The latest Jim Smith Tournament Boat, 86′ Sapelo, made its way the water today.
Here are few images as the boat is being prepped for the sea trial. Once the tower is on we’ll get some running shots of her soon.
