I have seen 3 different builders in our neighborhood in the last 9 months or so, 1) Edgewater 2) Mohave County 3) Sand Castle. Has anybody on this site used any of these 3 builders before? Is...

Old engine is DUN, so I'm looking for recommendations for engine builders that build a good Big ci small blocks that would run well in a jet.

    I'm sure everyone here knows I want to trade my chopper project for a flat bottom v drive boat. Now, I already have an old hull that was my dads. I would not be opposed to trading my chopper for a resto on that boat. It would need to be a sound boat and turnkey for this trade to happen. I'm not...

    I'm not trying to start or spread any rumors, but is anybody building any new boats. In my business I drive past a few builders, shockwave-lavey craft-caliber one-ultra.

    Will it ever end? Just think 1st it was Olympic and now Meridian Yachts on the big boy side, both Closing their doors. Now I hear Cope & McPhetres-Seattle/Woodenville and PowerBoats NW are both going under. Key Bank has stopped its Marine/RV Lending. I'm sure there will be/are more. Who is next...

    A guy I know just picked up what he belives is a Watercraft hydro. I'd like to sort out who were the builders of the other boats besides Kurtis and Sanger. Like who originally built and rigged them, what hapened to the molds, are they still around today, etc. Names like Watercraft, C&H...

    Do you expect to see go belly up within the next 24 months? The used market is flooded right now with some pretty amazing deals on used boats. I'm seeing boats that this time last year would fetch 85K+ going for mid 40's. Personally I'm thinking about upgrading in a very big way in the near...
