    i saw a guy trailering one on the turnpike couple of days ago on the way to work. that is one sexy boat. looks like it could do some damage on the flats.

    Thanks. They are sweet aren't they? She'll have all the bells and whistles with the exception of a poling platform and casting platform.

    Nice Vantage, but not even close to a "Micro skiff" ;)

    The word "sweet" is an understatement! Man, you are killing me with these pictures. I'm gonna die of envy!  ;)

    That's real cool of them to ramp up production on your boat like that!
