When my BB needs replacement I am getting one of these.. It's really is an improvement over the BB. Will it ever be available at the big box sport stores?

We are working with some distributors and have access to a couple "big box stores". The margins are thin so the big box buyers are hesitant. Seems their model works best if the products are made in China by the tens of thousands. That kind of market just does not exist for this product.

I have a feeling "Google" is going to become our best friend.

I received mine today and am really impressed. Shipping was extremely fast, quality looks second to none, and the price can't be beat. Proof will be in the functionality but I'm already a big fan. Well done.

Just got mine today also. The mechanism looks far more professional and beefy than what I'm used to. The Latch and Unlatch operations look so simple and easy compared with the BB also. I'll let you know in three or four years if it's actual lifetime matches up with it's promise.

From what I've seen, still have to get my hands on it

You put way too much quality and brain into the product for regular distribution ways, stores live from selling products not from solving problems once and for all, and the customer not coming back.

Just spend some money on adwords to get RNC connected with the search terms boatbuddy, broken boat buddy, etc...

Also a good bet are other ski boat and non-ski boat manufacturers, unless your contract with MC...

If you need financial needs of some sort for marketing, production, or distribution you could always go on Shark Tank
