Center console style fishing boats built in Punta Gorda, FL. Supposed to be a good ride in rough water, heard a rumor that they are out of business.

Thread was removed as part of the settlement.

Short story:
Steve's dad had put a 100k deposit on a boat with this scumbag.
His dad passes shortly thereafter.
Scumbag won't return the deposit.

Steve starts a thread asking for help on the west side.

I was living in Punta Gorda at the time and had a camera and time on my hands.

The story had a happy ending for Steve.

The Salt Shaker guys used to build Towers and other structures before going into the boat building business. I know they had the 29 strike molds for a while and built one 40' SF. I was never a fan of the forward deck design of one of their boats... high brow with an obnoxious raised deck. Very unattractive.
