Low Overhead!

Talk about no overhead! The guy sells a couple new boats and he's already in the black. I wonder how this will affect the purchase price of new and used boats?

I have been looking at the 34 for years now and would never be able to afford a new boat, and if I could why buy new when I could get a 80's model for a fraction of the cost. I prefer a tiller steered deep draft cutter anyway.

I'd love to see A no frills bare bones winches on the mast no electronics version of the 34 for a discounted price. I think the new boats were well overpriced.
Maybe this would be a good time to upgrade the mold a little. I myself prefer the current canoe stern 34, but it would be nice to see a little lighter version with a more modern sten, and a little more sail area. Get the DLWL to 280-300 by extending the waterline a little.

I can't wait to see some more news and would like to go see the new plant and operation. GoodLuck PSC. Brandon
