Dear Mastercraft, if you are listening...

Please, please build an outboard barefoot boat again! I realize it is a small piece of the pie but you have one sold already!

Not a great economic climate to begin branching out into niche product lines, sad to say.

Modified 197 with an outboard on the back would be better.

There are niches, and there are niches. The folks that can afford a 300 are going to generally be less affected by the economy than the ones that are interested in an outboard-powered 20 foot barefoot boat.

Anyway, the 300 was already off the drawing board and in the production hopper by the time the economy tanked. The design and production scheme were already costed out, might as well go ahead and sell it, recoup some of the investment.
