Frank - there is no hope in dope! Chief is R.I.P as far as building boats. Bobby (THE KING!) may be doing restorations and such but Chief is no longer building boats.

Looks like the Nordic 27 Lightning.
Yep, I knew they were still around. They started actually doing something other than white gel since moving West I think.

I believe the similarity to a Conquest is "stunning"

Yeah Magnum is still ballin out of control. They are just so super custom that only a few get built a year. http://www.magnummarine.com/news/news_fr.html


When I talked to Craig Barrie in Jacksonville he said they are still doing Dragon's for overseas customers.

What about Cougar?

Warlock? Cary?

Dave you are correct, they are not building boats.

If someone had a strong enough interest to have one of those boats (whether it be chief or not) you could have one built.

Magnum built my fathers Fino back in the 70's.... It's amazing how over the years the companies have built boats for other brands etc!
