    no name yet... but have been discussing in great detail over the phone with Michael the past month or so and over the past week with Ron out on Saint Paul Island... for the 2010-2011 duck season there will be a Bankes 25' on the waters of The Chesapeake Bay!

    Similar to the 21' Goliath, the 25' will be about 6"-8" wider, 3"-4" deeper and most of the added 48" will be in the cockpit. in the floor, an accessible forward mounted gas tank with 25" transom... thinking of a 200 Suzuki for mine all done in the gray camo i currently have.

    sometime the middle next month i'll have some pictures and video of the new hull molds along with some more info.

    how long til next season!

    thanks,

    jeff

    Dear Capt. Jeff,

    Thanks for the heads up.

    As many of us well know, the folks at Bankes Marine are some great people, and they make a great product. Kudos to Ron and Mike!

    God Bless you and yours,

    Mark

    Obviously the name should be the "King", following the Goliath and Crusader.

    I saw that you mentioned it in your King post and was wondering. I tell you what, THAT would be perfect for larger groups and guiding parties on that big surf !!

    Imagine the possiblities of what you could outfit the inside with...WOW !!!

    Very nice !!! :tu
