As I recall, Solution Boats was started by a fireman who started out building boats in his backyard.

That Fireman was my Uncle Robert Santhoff. I think he started that business in the late 70's and ran with it through the 80's. Yes he was a fireman. The boats I remember were decent and fun to ride in. I just ran across this and what a blast to see one still out there.

I came across one for sale here in Lake Forest when I was shopping for mine last year, looked really nice, was a 19' and didn't end up pursuing it as I wanted something bigger.
