    thank you Ike

    We try really hard to build a top quality product, and are very proud of what we do. We are still working on our website, we have been in buisness for 15 years and just now getting a sight and utilizing the web for advertizment.

    Welcome to the Boat Design Forum! If you scroll down the main forum page you will find the Services and employment forum which would have been a better place for this thread, rather than here in the Design Forum.

    Nice boats.

    Excuse my ignorance, but what is the pole next to the motor. It looks like it could be a transponder and ariel for the fishfinder and GPS but it looks huge.

    With the website, when you clicl next on the photos, there are a lot of photos that are the same and it gets a bit boring.

    Don't forget there is also a balance between what you want your clients to see and what you don't want your competitors to see. I personally think some of the construction details could be ommited.

    hello poida

    The pole beside the motor on our bayboat is called a powerpole. It is a shallow water anchor for fishing in the back water and is hydrolic, say you were fishing along a shoreline using your trolling motor and you wanted to stop and stay put in the wind or current, you just hit the button on the remote and put it down. It goes down fast and quiet, and works up to 8 foot deep.
