    If I wanted to solicit bids for only the fiberglass construction of a 65' to 75' expedition hull, deck, and superstructure are there any suggestions as to the best way to go about this. The completed fiberglass work would ultimately be used in the Northeast US where the overall project would be completed.

    There are many qualified fiberglass fabricators/boat builders in the northeast. You should first contact those around you to minimize your transportation costs. Where are you located?

    ya,,,theres hundreds of places that could do that in the northeast,,,as eagle says,,,,your best choice should be as close to where you want it in the water,,,of course if you go far enough north,,the moving cost is WAY cheaper then most places.

    Not being in the marine business I don't have the contacts as to who may have an interest in something like this. I was hoping someone might tell me of some medium where I could advertise or post such a project. If this could be completed anywhere in the Northeast it would be manageable. I appreciate anyone's thoughts.
