I am the original owner, and have the complete title, all the manuals, and have a current professional assessment of its current value (hardbound and pdf).
This boat was custom designed and optimized to be used for fishing, hunting, recreation, leisure, shallow white water, the ocean, and even camping (when enclosed, you can put two cots next to each other), and all-season fun. I have had it in the coldest of conditions, and the hottest, and it performed like a beast every time. Everything has been thoroughly gone through, maintained, and performs like the day I purchased it and brought her home. I am the original sole owner of this boat and had it custom manufactured (above and beyond normal).
