    I didn't go to the show. But isn't there one called Montana boat builders? Isn't another one called RO? I know I've seen them and have been propositioned by them. Not sure on the exact name though. You're talking about the ones that are made of the Kayak material, correct, not fiberglass?

    I saw those guys at the show and have been trying to look them up also. I can't remember the name of the company but if i'm not mistaken they said they were located in Idaho Falls.

    I was also trying to figure out who the were. It was a very different boat. I looked up the exibitors for the show, and they were not listed. I remember that the boat was made out of a foam core covered in carbon fiber or fibergalss. It had a kinda rhino lined interior, that looked pretty heavy duty.

    I a pretty happy with my Clacka, but it was cool to look at.

    Without Jason's confirmation I cant be 100% sure however, even without it I am 99.9999% sure it is the Free Stone boat I mentioned in my earlier post. I attended the show and besides Hyde and Clack this was the only other DB mfg "representing".
