Dave,

I knew we could agree.That's pretty much the same as I understand it. Will started Phantom in 1978 and Mark came in around 95-96 when the first Canopy A-Class boats where built.

I found the following in thread from back in 2000:

WILL SMITH?

His character is untouchable. And honesty, even Diogenes would be proud.

When I was in Europe visiting a client last month, the subject was approached regarding having a US builder manufacture one of their smaller boats for cost effectiveness. I recommend Phantom, no brain direction involved. The technology, quality, fit and finish is almost unsurpassed in the US. I was immediately shot down for my recommendation. Why, you ask? Yeah, I still ask myself the same question. Obviously, Will has himself a niche market - that being those that never have to worry about a rigging "issue," warranty "issue," electrical problem, or God forbid, a hull failure.

Will Smith did something no one else in the marine industry never accomplished. I'll never forget this. He was standing with my now ex-husband at the World Championship awards banquet in 96. He was telling us how he wanted to change offshore racing and install canopies on the A-class boats.....

Thank you William.

He took an idea an revolutionized offshore in two years - and made a profit! Will Smith is a pioneer. Hopefully 100 years from now he will be given credit for his efforts.

I'd buy his boat, in a heartbeat.

Jennifer


This is the period when Mark and Will where working together under one roof. Between them, there have many improvements....each taking something from the past and making the next generation better. Which came first, the chicken or the egg or who builds the better mouse trap is not what really matters.

I recently saw a '63 and '03 Corvette sitting side-by-side, you could definitely see the resemblance, but no way could you say they where the same.

Change is good, especially when it doesn't lose sight if its heritage.

We should all applaud and support both of these guys, and remember...we wouldn't be where we are today without them.

Here's to a better tomorrow,


KenD

I doubt that either the Phantom or the Extreme will go down in history known for their spacious cabin - but both are great boats built by class individuals. Here is a view of the Phantom cockpit and crawl space to the cabin-

OK Ken, We can sit down and have a beer now. I'll be in Savannah and i'll buy the first round.

Phantom1 - The cabin on the Extreme is not real big but it does have space to stretch out in. The sitting position is ok if you are not 6'6" or so but it's not bad. It's not by any means room for a plasma TV and bar but to get out of the weather or keep things dry, it works. How much space do you have in a Porsche ??? Dave

Wonder when this will get moved?
