I was told that production begins on my boat today. What does that mean? Was given these dates. 4/14 Production begins, 4/23 tentantive rack date, and 4/29 ship date. So what happens today and what does rack date mean?

Boats are built from the outside in, so judging by your avatar, they're going to spray black, red, and white gelcoat into a mold according to your design today. Let it cure, then apply a barrier coat, and finally fiberglass to the inside of the mold with your colors

Rack Date means it's finished, awaiting other boats being built on your load to finish

ship date means the stork is flying your new baby home

Edge nailed it. I didn't know either, so when I talked to the factory about my production book they gave me a run down.

Edge,

Thanks! Now i am getting excited. Amazing how time flies until you are waiting for something to arrive and then it creeps so SLOW!

tjklein,

What do you mean by production book and talking to the factory about it?

If you ever get a chance to go the a plant where boats are being built it is pretty cool to see the whole process.

I'd love to go. Especially this week but that can't happen, but maybe some day.
