What Tanner means is that Hells Bay did not produce the skiff this way or do the wrap. After Gander Mountain obtained the skiff, they did the wrap.

It just didnt seem logical to me that hells bay would do that to a skiff.

I could easily see how a corporate company like Gander Mountain would feel this could be appealing, but they have severly misunderstood what makes hells bays appealing, and it is the opposite of whats wrapped around that skiff.

Put an ice blue/white glades skiff next to that one and it will sell quickly. I hope that skiff sits there long enough that they dont make that mistake again.

I got the gist of what he was saying,
I just don't believe that skiff left HB
totally white with them having no knowledge
or participation in what happened to it after that...
I think that even if they didn't pay for the wrap
and god awful boat/trailer package they approved it.

My guess is that gander bought a large number of boats to sell and do what they want with.

Im sure HB knows about it and probably told them they could do what ever they wanted to the skiff, but I doubt HB would manufacture the skiffs like that or sell them like that themselves.

HB sold only 2 Glades Skiffs they had sitting around as a favor to Gander Mt. for the Jacksonville store opening and as a way to let people know they HB was back in operation with a new good owner. I understand that HB had no idea that they were going to put a garish wrap on the boat, and sell them for much more than you can go to HB and get your own skiff tricked out for!

I heard that HB is not happy with how Gander and will not be selling anthing other than the 2 Glades Skiff they already sold to them.
