I visited the plant in Newberry, SC a few weeks ago. Was able to get some solid 1 on 1 time with owner Stephen Waller. Very impressive for such a small operation at this time. The 205s on the floor there were pretty badazz to say the least.
So you can open them while you are standing next to it on the trailer. That way you don't have it get up in the boat to load/unload your rod locker. Honestly, can't believe nobody's tried it before now.
There were a few companies that made the lids open towards the boat so you could get to your rods and stuff but it was a pain when in the boat.I would think if your stuff is up towards the front the lid would be in the way ,just have to see one to make that call.
Is it me or does the 205 look like a totally different hull design? its very blunt and bulbous where the 215 looks like the Phoenix 721 or 201 its Daddy. Does the 205 come from a different hull design and pad design? Love to see more
