Very nice boats. The fit and finish is very good and the company has been around a long time. The only drawback is its a 17 degree hull. It may not ride as nice as some other boats with deeper Vs

Hey "Mr. Economist" These companies make BILLION$ and can certainly afford to pay workers more!

I'm anything but a racist. Why can't they hire a few AMERICANS here and there. Oh, that's right, they might have to pay them a living wage. Sorry about that.

On the other hand, the boat is one of the smallest available on the market with a full enclosed transom and bracket-mounted engine. Safe and secure for kids in the stern of the boat; plenty of cockpit space; and the full platform makes a nice jump-off point for water sports.

Although the company has been in business for many years, the present owners are new to boat manufacturing and they recently relocated to a new (to them) plant facility on the opposite end of Florida. Hopefully, many of their skilled workforce made the move with them. I will be interested to hear how you like your sea trial.

i had a 2000 205 for a couple of years - it was a great boat for nearshore fly fishing but a little light for long runs in chop - could have been the 17 degree hull too. seemed pretty well made for the price (hatch screws tended to come loose) and ran well with a honda 130 strk at only 1800lbs hull weight (very efficient boat). as mentioned above, the ownership did change in last few years and i think the new guys had plans to build bigger boats but have since scratched them as there are only a few sizes available now on the web site (they seem to have discontinued some of the smaller ones too?). i bet you can get a great deal on a used hull since not many folks seem to have heard of them (i sold mine for 50% of it's purchase price with 3 yrs and 170hrs on it... not great resale)
