Ballsy at best, but I'm sure some said the same about the transition from SUP to skiffs and they have done well there. It is no doubt a beautiful hull and I'm sure performance oriented, I hope they don't forget where they came from. There is a saying that goes with busineess that sorta fits here. I think it goes.....you can ride the wave of change or find yourself under it. I applaud them for choosing to take it to the next level, no doubt there is a lot riding on it for them.
I hope they do well. I guess their skiff days are short given how few companies build center console offshore boats and skiffs. Course East Cape, Hells Bay and Beavertail rolling into bay boats has a similar feel.
