Brunswick RIBS- "IMPACT"

Anyone familiar with the reputation of this brand and build quality? I have seen them in use by CA Fish and Wildlife but otherwise dont know much about them. I am thinking of having them do a sub chapter T build for me.

Look like nice boats. Not sure that they are marketed to anyone other than public service agencies. Some of have WING tubes I believe which are of good quality. Not sure that all of them do. Seen a few government boats which did not look to have held up as well as Willards or Hurricanes under same usage.

Roger! Thanks.. yeah they are the same company that makes all the commercial boston whaler stuff, I assume the hulls are pretty good if they are keeping in line with that reputation. Their price is significantly more competitive than the quotes I've received from RibCraft or Willard...

But you're right, I doubt there's any in recreational usage.

Used to work closely with the company. My 2 cents: good boats, well built, lots of available options. Each boat is essentially customized based on what you need, but options based on commercial needs (ie tow posts, crash rails, seating arrangments, consoles etc)...not really creature comforts. No doubt that Willard and Zodiac also build good crafts. MetalCraft makes an aluminum version as does the others above.
