Never been on one in the water, but have seen them at the Maine Boat Builders show the past several years. They seem like honest, simple, large work platforms. Huge deck for the size of the boat. Pushed by small (economical) engines.
Dave Cunniffe and AJ took me out for a test ride in one of the Allied RB 19s with a 60 etec in April 2012, they were doing a delivery to Maryland from Maine and were happy to stop in Rockaway NY to demo the boat with me for a few hours and answer my questions. I was interested in the WB 20 as a no frills recreational fishing skiff for me as a first boat. I liked the low maintenance and low gas consumption and wide beam of the WB 20. The ride of the RB 19 was smooth compared to other cc's i have been on it seems to glide over the waves compared to the heavier deep v cc's i have fished upon. We didnt get to test it in much of a chop but it took the waves well and seemed like a comfortable boat on the drift. The boat i tested had trimtabs and dave recomended them. Dave was hoping for rougher conditions so that I could see that the boat was not just a bay skiff as many critics seem to view it as. I liked the boat and was impressed with the hull,. Im not a fan of the trex but i was interested in the WB model anyway. Its still on my list of hulls that im interested in. Right now Hurricane Sandy took the money for the boat fund.
