    I want to talk to a builder about building an Elco 26' to the original design. I remember reading somewhere that there's a builder in the Great Lakes area who has the design and can build either traditional plank on frame or cold-molded. I might have read that here a while ago, but I can't find him now. Anyone know who he is?

    I was told that it's more cost effective to build two boats at the same time – shared setup costs, etc. Is this true? If so, how do I find another person who wants to have the same boat built?

    Edgewater:

    We are a custom builder in Ohio and are now bidding a new build to the Elco 26 design. I'd be happy to discuss your project if you'll contact me at the address below. And if you discover how to find like-minded clients, I'd love to know!

    And thanks to Tad for thinking of us!

    Edgewater,

    I might be able to help out with another quote- maybe even another Elco 26 client.
