Nice. I will be interested to follow this. I looked at these and Galeforce but went with a different option in the end.
Do you mind sharing your decision making process as to why you settled with this one?

Ride and build quality, all fiberglass build, Aussie made, great value for money and really easy to work with Roger and Martin at the factory.

What did you end up going with?

Cheers
Paul

I'm gunna love this thread! I was on their website last night having another think. I visited the factory a couple of months ago and was impressed with their attitude and build qualities. The falling dollar has made it a lot harder to justify that Key West I have my heart set on.

I went with a Crossxcountry.

I wanted glass as well after have alloy for the last few hulls. It was locally built to where I am so I had peace of mind with keeping an eye on things.

I know a bit about the vacuum infusion technology they use so I had no hesitation regarding the build method.

I think the Bonito are a well constructed boat but at the end of the day, I was after something a bit smaller and lighter to make handling by myself a little less troublesome.

Cheers, Rhet.
