Is Scarab it's own brand now?

Did Wellcraft sell it off?

The story is/was/might be that Larry Smith owned the "rights" Genmar and he could not get an agreement going so off he went to California with his molds.

Fox Bullcrap!! Those antiques which date from the old 35 Cigarette genes have a lot of things that nowadays is unacceptable I am not going to go into the Geometry problems..However I am the only person alive who has Built a new Apache hull..(not confused with slopassed molding)

I will put it this way it would not be my first choice..

Forget racing LOL..One needs a hull that can be "Weight Managed" not overweight! Notice I am avoiding the Hull efficiency completely...

Best Regards

Those old antiques have rough water pedigree racing heritage. If you feel Thad's boat is superior then it must be proven. Talking down the finest rough water boats will prove lackluster and seem motivated by envy.
