We wanted to create an open concept boat with all the options and our blind. The boat was to look similar to other like boats. However, we made them much more robust with higher sides and thicker material. You can run this boat in the great lakes or the ocean. This boat has been performing flawlessly on the great lakes! We started with the 19′ boat and will expand this line in due time! Call and design the perfect boat for your needs. We named the boat “Hackey” for a great man! May Ky Krause Rest in Peace!
