 From the stories I've heard nearly every build blew out and a few of the last ones ended in legal action. 
Quality builds though. I'd say he just got tired of the fighting with customers in the end.

 Ex Stagg boat employee and a very knowledgeable and trustable person.

Building a 7.5M sport cabin with him. Great experience and extremely happy with the boat so far.

 

Thanks

Tue, 2022-08-09 07:50

When we were up in Exmouth, I saw the boat they had made for the Charter operator up there and jeez it is a solid cyclone proof boat and the finish is really top notch.

On the other hand, that one made for Wish YBS, beauty is in the eye of the beer holder and jeez, seeing that boat up close (old mate lives just down the road from my mates and in laws in Hammond Park), one needs a few beers!

Wed, 2022-08-10 11:06

Personal opinion and its probably more got to do with the fact that I cannot stand that Nomad clown. 

The boat may be functional though I dont think it looks good. Kinda like a Holden Barina with a suspension upgrade, 35's, snorkel and side steps... Again, personal opinion.

Fri, 2022-08-12 06:53

Wish.com is a website where you can buy shit versions of anything. Everything I have ever purchased from there is a copy of the genuine thing and generally rubbish.

Wish YBS is me suggesting Nomad is a cheap version of YBS. Again, personal opinion. though he entirely lost me where there is a specific thing he does (back flip off a boat) at the exact same part of a song as YBS but a month later. He lost me at that point. Well that and the gas cooker up the top of the dune at the northern end of garden island which isnt allowed, and walking around the island at night which also isnt allowed.

Wed, 2022-08-10 13:45

There are plenty doing the exact same thing (cookie cutter boats) and the order books are crazy. Genesis are out to 2 years and now forwarding costs from giving boats to influencers based on their most recent price increase. I hear that Razerline has a longer wait than that. Dont know why any of them would be going to the boat show to be honest.

I went and had a look at FG boats on the weekend. Cant find anything on him other than his facebook page though he is a bit of a craftsman and is currently making a very nice boat. Ralated to one of the owners of that Stabicraft and formally worked there before heading over here.
