  Nature Bound
  Posted by: OldBill on Apr-30-08 8:02 AM (EST)
Was located in Fitchburg Ma. back in the 80's. They made a line of entry level boats along with some that were above entry level. IMHO they were a step above Coleman and Pelican but then I worked part time for them on and off over the years. They had a line of chopped glass boats as well as hand laided up. They also bought Mohawk hulls in royalex and finished them off themselfs.
Reguardless of what people may have thought of them they sold a bunch of boats thru out N.E. in that time frame. I still see them around all the time.

Can't remember the model name, but 16 foot, fairly narrow and sleek, round-bottomed, fast. Not light, but not too heavy. I think it was a bargain.
