Glad to see Dave staying onboard. Looks like it will be business as usual for a great West coast builder.

Tough times in an industry that is challenging in the best of years. I'm pulling for any go-fast boat builder who can weather this storm.

This is great news! Especially the M40 Wide Body added to the line up. Maybe we will start to see DCB in Florida!!

Congrats DCB and Dave!

Thanks for the update Matt.

My pleasure, as always, Cavanti.

The M-40 will be massive. Can't wait to see that one.

Dave builds amazing boats his attention to detail is really unmatched in the industry. I know it's not his niche but i would love to see him build a big cat for the ocean, something with a full tunnel and with the salt in mind. Let's face it Dave's boats are to pretty to use in the ocean!

I would think the 40' cat he's building now would work in the ocean...

in my experience any cat with a center pod really can't handle offshore conditions, they are best suited for calmer waters.

You are right Cat. The 40 will perfect for Florida Poker Runs. Not much Ocean running except Keys or Bahamas maybe. It will be top notch I am sure. I love Skater and Nortech also but DCB interiors and details are second to none.
