Boat Builder's Throwdown

The battle of the boat builders has begun! Teams representing their manufacturers compete for the perpetual trophy and the rights to say that their boat make is the best. To be in the running, each manufacturer must have at least 3 boats representing them. The winner is based on the top 3 scores from each participating boat. How do we get these scores? The Throwdown follows the same point system as the Quest for the Crest.  1st Place boat earns 30 plus 1 points, 2nd place 29, 3rd place 28 etc.  The boat builder with the highest points has the privilege of displaying the perpetual trophy at their production facility until the following year of competition!

The 2014 Operation Sailfish had four qualifying builders this year but two of them went head to head on the results board. With Miss Annie in 1st and Qualifier in 3rd, the Boat Builders Throwdown was awarded to Viking with a total of 76 points. Team Irish Twin contributed 17 points to the Viking score as well. Contender boats finished only 2 points behind with Jichi in 4th place, Doing it All/Team Hardway in 5th and ProPayroll in 10th


Congratulations to Viking Boats, winner of the Boat Builders Throwdown!
