Outboard Repower Shop has joined with Mark Castlow's Dragonfly Boatworks, LLC
of Vero Beach, Florida in a collaborative effort to bring a Special & Limited Version of Mark's "Marsh Hen" to the Northeast.
This is a well thought out boat design from Mark's extensive boat design and building experience and designed to "keep things simple" but set apart from the rest.
