Well, it is official! Summertime is here, and I hope that everyone has carved out some time to be able to get out on their boats with their families. Here at the factory, we have been staying extremely busy with all of the semi-custom builds that we have been working on.

Some of that semi-custom work has been figuring out different ways to fit gyros into all the different models we build. I remember when we were the first company to install one in a smaller outboard boat. It reminds me of the first time we did a bow thruster in one of our boats around 20 years ago. We originally did it as a customer’s request, and I remember wondering if anyone else would want this type of option in the future. Here we are 20 years later, and I would say that 95% of all the boats we build has a bow thruster in it. I thought the same thing when we did the first gyro. Now I have five boats online right now with gyros in them. It just shows once again that our customers are our best designers!

Be safe and get some time on your boat! It will thank you for it and so will your family.
