Meet our OwnersStoney P.from Beaumont, TX

Every outdoorsman gets to a point in life when his mission becomes finding the perfect boat for his hunting and fishing passion.  In my case, I was looking for a smaller skiff with the right draft and maneuverability to get me deep into the wetlands.

I discovered Beavertail Skiffs on the internet and was drawn to the Micro’s design and capabilities. I called Beavertail and spoke with Elizabeth who provided me with a quote and ideas to consider for designing the boat perfect for me. I must say, I picked the deck and hull color that would make an interior designer proud.  With some guidance from Elizabeth, we determined the right coloring for the seat cushion and Sea Dek.  I paid the deposit and received a completion date and the construction of my Micro was underway!

As the completion date approached I began to get a bit nervous because I know that in the construction industry, there are always delays.  Elizabeth understood my concern but assured me that the boat would be ready and nothing would be missing.  So, I made the journey from Texas to Bradenton…1200 miles.  When I got to Beavertail Skiffs, Will was rolling out my Micro.  The first thing I noticed was the fit and finish. It was really tight…the finer details looked like the work of an artist.  I quickly learned that it was Will that put the finishing touches on the boat and as he walked me through all of my requested extra options, I discovered that there were a couple of added extras.

It was, and still is, my impression that Will and Elizabeth understood exactly what I wanted and how I was going to use my new boat. I always believe that good business entails “Doing what you say and saying what you do.” Both of these criteria were met. I’ve called the factory a couple of times with questions and Will has personally called me back to answer them.  I have no hesitation in recommending to someone a new boat from the BT factory. I’m proud and happy to be a part of the BT family.
