    Vexus Stops Fiberglass Production?

    Heard this from a national rep from another boat manufacturer. Is there any info out there as to why? Love the look of the new boats btw...

    No one who would make a comment like that would have the spine to put their name or employer's name behind it. Also a good chance they will be looking for a new line of work before long for one reason or another.

    Seriously.... It came from a Skeeter National Sales guy. Don't know the name, but it wasn't an attempt to slander Vexus. At least it didn't appear that way. Just him and a number of Demo Team members were talking about boats and Vexus came up, and that the Fiberglass boat production was on hold (no reason as to why).

    I definitely took it with a grain of salt...lol!
    If it is not true, good to hear... Go ahead and delete this thread if that is the case.

    Instead of worrying about vexus shutting down fiberglass production maybe skeeter should begin fiberglass production on their decks. Dumbest design ever IMO that skeeter has.

    Where are they at in the production process? Last I read vexus was still tinkering with the process before production.

    Just shows all eyes is on Vexus and not on what is going on with their own brand.
