    Saw the first one at Cedar Key a few years ago and thought it very innovative, like much of what the Gougeons turn out. It is way ahead of the standard aluminum pontoon boats in performance as well as handling bigger water. Only drawback is that you have to build it to have one:mad:.

    "At
    this point, the Newick hulls can be special ordered from Dick Pereli of
    Still Water Design for those who would like to build their own boat.
    As this concept matures, we suspect that some semi-custom builders will
    respond to whatever demand develops.
    For more information about the Newick
    hulls, contact Dick Pereli at StillWater Design,
    781-608-3079, or visit
    stillwaterdesign.com."

    Might be worth trying the contact details to start with. The look like a good idea.
