Default No Howard Custom Boats?

Why isn't there a topic for Howard Custom Boats down below with all of the other performance manufacturers?

Simple...demand. This is more of an east coast and mid-west centric forum, while west coast boats are certainly discussed and owned by members, the lower production west coast boats don't get that much press here.

That's why I asked the question. With the new popularity of the Bullet series by Howard (25' and 28'), there have been more Howards sold the last 5 years than DCB, Hallet, Warlock, and possibly Advantage. Is Warlock even in business anymore??

it's like Indy said......

Being on the east coast, I don't recall EVER seeing a Howard, DCB, Hallet, or Advantage on the water. i have seen a few Warlocks.

I'm guessing you don't see many Superboats, Activators, or Kryptonites out West.

And being this is an offshore boating site, theres not a lot of discussion over 25' boats.. screamandfly.com is a perfect venue for learning about howards.

There is a Warlock for sale right up the road from me. As a matter of fact, I think it is in the Classifieds here. Looks great from the outside at least.

all that being said i would think if you could generate the interest they would add that to the list. I'm sure its as valid as Warlock, Hallett etc. Welcome to the forum btw.


Heck years ago when i first started on this board i had a 24' Omega daycriuser, it was a splash of one of the Hawiians i believe . . . . . I've since seen the light and moved into bigger water . . . . enjoy the place lots of good info here no matter what ya run.

Not Howard, but here are a few vid's taken from my boat including a little warlock, these were taken at peanut island(palm beach), Two georges(Boynton), and the Atlantic in between.
