World & National Champions
I've owned, looked at and driven a lot of boats. I haven't driven them all as a doubt many people have. I happend to love MTI.
Every make boat has their issues. I'm surprised how many people have a such strong negative opinions. I wonder how many have first hand knowledge.
I have seen many "Top name" boats stress crack everywhere. Some before they ever made it off the trailer.
I have seen certain make boats delaminate where huge sections of the hull would need to be replaced. Sometimes while running and sometimes from just sitting.
I have seen boats porpoise so bad fro 80 to 100 mph there had do be a tunnel tab added that would make the boat dangerous as heck.
I have seen boats that have a reputation of hooking or spinning out, throwing the passengers overboard.
Still people will defend the make boat they love and criticize others with little or no personal experience in the ones they critisize. All boats have issues, some are much more serious then others.
When I got to Havasu I was very surprised to find out that out that of all the different boats that took part in the Havasu run Johnny Tomilson was running the DCB's.
There was some bad equipment there!! When I heard JT was running the "lake boats" I see advertised in the magazines I had to take a closer look. JT is very particular as to what he runs in.
I'm no boat expert by any means. I spent quite a bit of time talking with Dave (which i never met before) and looking at the way his boats are built. After spending time and talking with Dave, talking with JT and looking at the boats inside and out I came to the conclusion: "these are not the little Lake boats i thought they were"! I think the DCB's are right there with the best of them.
Johnny Tomilson took people for rides all weekend. He said he could not believe the ride. He said he was very impressed. He also said it was one of his best weekends in boating.
Before anyone bashes DCB's I strongly suggest taking a look at them first hand. I never saw one in person before and I was amazed and Impressed.
If JT says it you can take it to the bank. Teague included. He used to own DCB 29 and 32 cats before he got his Skater40SS.
Isn't Schiada a West Coast builder? I heard they make a awesome offshore boat, just not real popular.
The boat, colors and Trailer are remarkable..!!
Simply Amazing to look at!! WOW...
Gino, where is your new secret weapon? 4x 1350 maybe?
This board could use some upbeat stories!!! Somebody build something already damn it! I dont want to hear about any health issues. Been through that for 3 yrs now. Lets dig in and create some serious chit!! Hope all goes well for DCB beautiful machines.
I cant wait to come through the other side and get back in the game.... I really miss it.Its been 2 yrs now without a ride unfortunately its taking a little bit of time while we wait for CHANGE and redistribution of wealth ha ha!
