Huge Thanks To DiamondBack

Post by SlideWayz »

I would like to give a HUGE thanks to everyone at DiamondBack Airboats for building my new hull and stainless rigging. Everyone from the front office to the whole manufacturing crew did an awesome job of keeping me informed of my build from start to finish. I would also like to thank Fran for giving me a tour of their facility and meeting the shop employees. Having the whole team available for discussing my build made my buying decision a lot easier.

Hey Kevin,Just on a side note DiamondBack delivered the boat before the due date.....Not like some of the other so called boat builders that a lot of us have had troubles with.

Go see Fran or Bobby at DB and check out the workmanship in their hulls.My hull rides very free in the water but yet it will turn(no sliding or crow hopping).A lot of hulls might be free in the water but slide or crow hop when making a turn.JMO
