Johnny Morris bought another boat company

Recommended Posts

Then he'd better get on board with influencing the State Legislators to finally do something about limiting these incredible wakes that are filling-up fishing boats with water coming in over all four sides....or his market for fishing boats is going to dry up as more people get fed up with conditions on area lakes. 

Wasn't "Legend" yet another brand name that John Story made boats under ?

John Storie designed the original Champion 16' 8" Super V hull.  He did not design any of the other hulls Champion became known for in those early years like the 176, 184 and 201.  Storie left Champion with a non-compete clause meaning he couldn't build a boat with a wedge V design so he took a Ranger 480 series boat, splashed the hull (made a copy), made some adjustments and that was the start of Cobra/Viper boats, then he started Hawk boats using the same molds.  Hawk went out of business and the guy that started legend bought the molds off of Storie.  Fisher Marine fiberglass rigs that came out in the late 90's were also built off the same molds.

Storie is no longer in the boat building business.
