    As Rustyrotor mentioned Dolphinboats will back up, and running early 2018! To everyone who has been trying to reach us, we apologize for the inconvenience. We are working diligently in getting the web-site, phone numbers, and emails up, and running smoothly. Hopefully by the end of this week this will all be up. Please be patient with us just little longer so we can provide the best service possible. You can also follow our progress on instagram at dolphinboatsofficial.
    Thank you!

    I've done it many times. All smallish craft can be wet given conditions but no other 16-foot skiff I know of fares better. The deadrise and bow flares do a surprisingly good job of cutting chop and sending water out and away.

    Rusty, great to hear that it's just a temporary closing.

    Dolphin1, can you please provide a link to the new web site/contact info? The old site seems to be cached? Tried re-loading with no change.

    Good start on the website.

    EPA plastic fuel tanks will be a deal breaker for many. Highly recommend changing to aluminum.

    Will you guys be partnering with Evinrude?

    Why would the fuel tanks be an issue? Our main focus is Yamaha, but we can put anything the customer requests. We can also just sell you the rigged hull, and the customer can have there engine dealer rig it with there engine of choice.

    Gasoline fumes will eventually pass through plastic and stink up everything in that storage area.
