    Hi all!

    I have a HIN of FHL06326J788, I have looked it up and even paid $20 to a 'boat-fax' site that didn't really tell me much.

    I've gotten this from the USCG site:

    TRITON BOATS LLC - OOB

    MIC: FHL Status: Inactive Company: TRITON BOATS LLC - OOB Company Official: HOPPER, RANDY Parent Company: FISHING HOLDINGS LLC Parent MIC:
    Address: PO BOX 179 City: FLIPPIN State: AR Zip: 72634-017 Country:
    Phone: 3874532222 Fax:
    In Business: 8/9/2010 Out of Business: 8/18/2010 Date Modified: 8/18/2010 Type: Outboards, Open Motorboats, Jon Boats

    Addtional Address: DELAWARE IS STATE OF INCORPORATION


    Hard to believe this company was only in business for 9 days????

    The "boat-fax" only references it as manufactured by "Fiberglass Specialties" out of Riveria Beach, FL and a status of 'plant closed'. If anyone has any information on this I would love to hear it, I've included a photo, and have seen the boat in person, but there is no name/make/model on it anywhere.

    Current owner states this is a "32ft. Custom Cary" ??? Although I have not been able to find anything on this either.

    Thanks for any help provided.

    It's not uncommon to see companies open and close in a very short time. Picture this scenario, you buy a boat mold, start up a company to build some boats, pop several out of the mold in a week or so, then fold up the company. Why? Well it's simple, so you don't have to honor a warranty or answer questions about the boats. All the trades see this type of less than scrupulous activity. A home builder might setup as the general contractor, to build all the homes in a new development, then close down after the last house is built, so he "doesn't exist" when warranty issues come up a few years later.

    Check for similarities and differences, the 1' length difference may be due to a different outboard mounting . . . ? ?

    Google: ‘‘ Fiberglass Specialties Riviera Beach, FL ’’ - Note: Riviera is misspelled in the above post#1 quote as: ‘‘Riveria’’ - maybe this gives less results ?

    Gives for me:
    - Fiberglass Specialties
    - Boat Repair in Riviera Beach, Florida
    - Address: 1748 Australian Ave, West Palm Beach, FL 33404, USA

    Does the old photo look a bit like the boat of interest, at least the rail style . . . ? ?

    That boat is way older than 2010, in ny opinion, likely last century or very close to it.

    Yes, the Hull #, indicates it's a 1988.

    The condition is what matters.
