    Ive seen lots of discussions on here about the various tin boat builders and the pro's and cons of many of them. What I haven't seen included in the discussions are locally built Allied boats and specifically the Corsair series. Does anybody have any firsthand experience with these boats and has anybody actually ridden on one or have one? Would love to hear what the brotherhood has to say about these boat. Thanks.

    Hell all boats have there pros and cons they all are over priced but we keep paying the price cause we love it. I got a 26 ft kingfisher excursion as an investment to re sell and i fell in love with it the down fall is not a lot of deck space but we make it work. Good luck and get you check book out bigger is better

    Allied has matured in the past few years in Leaps and Bounds. The first 2 boats that Bo and Jon showed up with at the Seattle Boat Show looked like shit. The welds improved a !000% in time for the next show First year they looked like worms dropped into the corners. Hopefully they cut them out and rewelded before those two boat where sold. The inclusion of a few Safeboat Welders that were offered jobs. Those guy could weld and it showed in the stacked dimes in the corners.

    Bo's new personnel Boat is a Pretty Girl. Wrapped and Pain-ted. Next month you can see for your self at the 2018 Seattle Boat Show.

    Agreed John. I look forward to seeing the rigging on these boats at boat show 2018.

    The 28' Allied that was at the Monroe Sportsman Show last year was the bomb!
    Check they out!

    Allied Liberator is in my top 3. I got to fish on Bo's 31' this year and the boat is rock solid. He has it rigged to the top end and it is a great fishing platform.

    My idea is to down size some what and make things simpler and easier. The Liberator doesn't do that for me

    I would ping RK52. I believe he has one of the warhawk series boats. They appear to have the same hull as the corsair series just different cabins.

    Bear in mind if you want a one-off boat with simplified features, there's actually a TON of custom builders of metal boats, and many of them are over here on the east side of the state. Places like Bloodsworth, for example, have fantastic craftsmanship, and will build to any design you specify.

    Allied hopefully has recovered from some serious warts early in their production run. Conceptually a good boat, but struggles with execution in the past have hopefully been weeded out.

    I cant wait to crawl around their boats at the show this year. Very keen to see how they weld and rig their boats now.

    If things are tidy and they have stepped up the rigging (esp the wiring), then they have a hell of a value proposition right now based on pricing I have seen.

    Jon I fixed it for you.
    Each sale is unique as is the boat. It is a given that Bo places to much trust in past Employees. Get on his good side and involve him in the deal. He will be at the Boat Show selling. Get the deal written out in a contract then use it and your personality to work thru the issues that arise.

    I have to say Bo was always very easy to work with. He always offered solutions and tried to make it right. He is one man trying to manage a good sized operation, so he cannot be everywhere. When one of his guys did some sub standard work on my boat I vented to Bo and he not only apologized, but also sent me a gift for my time and trouble.

    I don't know about the boats. I do know that twice I have called Defiance Marine looking to plunk down, cold hard cash (reels, gas tank) and did not receive a return call either time. Being such a cranky fuck, that has kinda soured me on the company. FWIW, YMMV.
