Like all Jarrett Bay cold-molded builds, soon after Gary Davis, a third-generation boatbuilder and the company's visionary designer, had completed her hull drawings, Blank Check started taking form on the floor of her construction building by being lofted out to full size. This technique gives the team a chance to have a look at the lines of the boat. Once Ramsey, Davis and the rest of the design team approve, the wood jig stations are constructed, along with the mold. They place Douglas fir stringers in that mold, along with the stem, and three layers of Okoume planking for the bottom and sides. These layers are carefully cut, fitted, placed and then glued in alternating directions, resulting in a very strong final product. "The outcome is certainly lighter than traditional fiberglass construction and allows for increased speeds and efficiency," Ramsey says.
