Any explanation for the delay? The prior story was "early 2017," which then morphed into "Spring 2017." Just curious if anyone knows.

I suspect the guys are quite busy just keeping up with production of their current models.

Would think it would also be due to wanting to make the best first impression possible. You know how critical us boat people are!

I'm excited to see the finished product for sure. Rushing to market usually doesn't work out well.

Yeah well, I can't talk Henry into making an Open/Tournament style from it. Ughhhh, forward seating sucks.

Got to go with what sells.

Lots of men have to get the wife's approval on boat purchases since they now cost a small fortune.

Luckily mine didn't care, she just wanted a boat I would keep more than 12 months.

How's the new boat search coming? Sea trialed anything cool yet?

I'm not in any hurry. I do want to see the 26 when it comes out but, for now the 222sf is going to be fine for this year. I'm seriously thinking of heading to Miami for the show in the winter to see as much as I can. I have a pretty specific list of attributes I want in the next boat though. We'll see but, right now the leading one is the Southport 29TE but, things can change. I also like the lines of the CH 31T but the storage is limited and I've heard really mixed reviews. Regulator 31 would be at the top of the list if they didn't have the forward seating and still offered a tourney style boat. I liked the Contender 30 & 32ST layout the most however, with 24.5 degrees of deadrise, they tend to roll a bit more for bottom fishing. I'll find the right boat when it is time.

I was hoping this wouldn't be delayed so long. I've got a twitchy trigger finger. Currently looking at the Judge 265 since it can be powered with a single. Let's see how long I can hold out.

Maybe some sort of sneak preview would cause me to wait? :D

I saw it but, I'm not telling. Got some serious Carolina boat influence, a little Buddy Davis and Southport mix.

Now, if we could get them to axe the forward seating.

By the way, a few questions, which will determine if I wait for it or not:

1. Is it a pure, offshore style hull (like the 222), or more in line with the Bay Sport (hybrid style)?
2. Can it powered by a single 300?
3. Will it have a step-down head?
