Why not just buy one of the badass boats that are built in the United States?

Because this one looks better, performs amazing, and it is still planned, painted, and rigged here.

We daily drive a BMW and a Lexus and you couldn't pay me to make that a ford, GM, or Dodge these days in our household.

I don't care for only American made, It is nice to do it where I can but I would not settle for something I like less simply because this boats mold was from overseas if it was what I liked best. Congrats to all who had their hand in it form over seas to right here in the USA. Badass boat all around.

I guess this more or less sums up my thoughts on foreign crap. I buy American whenever it is an option!

And there is zero wrong with that. Just as there is nothing worng with someone not sharing the same passion as you in that sense.

It is what makes us human, different opinions.

I worked supplying OEM auto makers for 13 years, long ago stopped worrying about what "made in America" meant when it comes to autos.

It is such a world wide supply and engineering chain most would be stunned. I have seen the same vehicle badged in China as Buick, Korea as a Deawoo, Europe a Opel and in the US a Suzuki.

Either way a nice looking boat, the OB cat market has a ton of choices, would be hard to pick.
