To start off, I want to say that I love the idea of this forum. Other forums have topics like "show us your downeast boat" and you always get a Parker with a cabin or a Steiger Craft with a cabin. I noticed the forum leader lists privateer (nc builder) and some other non downeast boats. Will this site keep true to Downeast/Lobster and perhaps Novi style boats? Where is the cut off? Sabre and Back Cove are made in Maine and are traditional in style but are not Downeast lobster boats. Is a Mackenzie Cuttyhunk in the spirit of what this site is about? I don't want to sound uptight, just a thought.
