I still think they have bitten off a little more than they can chew. Looking at the boat pictured, I see all those big windows right down to the waterline on the main and second decks. Experience tells me they won't be too long into the first season before they'll knock out a window or two with some trees. The lack of a landing stage has been mentioned before. Capt. Hawley tells me the boats will draw about 11 feet...tough to get to some landings with that kind of draft. The list goes on, and the Jones Act regulations will be their biggest hurdle.
