I will clarify that earlier in this thread the pot was stirred a bit and things got a little more heated than they should have. When making my bone fish references they were directed at the boats built under Chris the previous owner. I have not seen a newly built bone fish so I can't comment on them. I was referring to the older boats.
The new owner has his work cut out, and it will be hard to rebuild the name. But as long as it's a quality product from here on out the word will spread. When I see one up close i'll give my no BS opinion on it like I try to do everything else.
Mr. Cook good luck with the venture.

Thanks Patton, with all of the changes in the marine industry the last few years. Alot of the old info may not be applicable to current boats in production. It is good to see your willing to keep an open mind and give new owners the chance to succeed on their own merits.

10/4 on the ever changing industry it has been good and bad. I spoke with Mr. Cook and I understand where he is coming from, well maybe not but I have a pretty good idea. He has some great molds and judging solely on the companies facebook page looks like they are building them right. I still haven't seen them in person but he has gone above and beyond to document the construction of the boats he is building. IMO every builder should be doing this. I have always liked the 18 and one with a half tower would be great for the Tampa area.

I hope they are as solid as they appear, nothin wrong with some coring.
