Looks a bit like a Skeeter from behind.

Nice though.

Who is the builder?

Gorgeous! Where does the transducer go? Close to center line and the motor? Or does one use a thru hull?

Couple of things I really like:
The seats are centered.
There is enough space on both sides for rods on deck.
Rod storage looks A+!
Rod tips will love the space next to the console. Clean lines!

Would like to see the main bait/storage hatch too and the inside of the livewell and back compartment though.

Hey guys, any Enquiries on the New Raptor Bass Boat that we launched will be channeled VIA our Company Delta Marine.

No offence to anyone but we have been getting calls from a certain Boat Builder that visited us on the Boat Show, that's got ideas in mind that is Unethical and includes buying one of our boats. It's just a mere fact that some people are more Creative than others and the only way for them to get to that same Level is to take a mould and Rip it off. As they have done before. We don't share the same views, ideas nor values and will not be associated with any of this people.

We don't want to create a Platform for any negative thoughts or ideas regarding the Raptor, it's Future nor the 2 year Development and hard work that went into our plug that lead this creation..... not even to mention the time, money, materials and labour that went into it. We truly believe in word of mouth and believe that the manner that we launched the boat and people that surround us will create a good platform to start from. We had great feedback from most of the True Honest Boat Builders thats been around for years, and we truly appreciate it. A great thanks to Leon Prinsloo, Neil Barker and Danny, Hennie ,Russell(RMP), Pat Lees and Frans Swanepoel.

This boat is our baby and we will not let any Company ruin this for us. We please ask you guys to respect our decision and please channel any Questions thru our Company and DQ Quinton.

This boat was Designed and Developed by Myself,DQ Quinton, Chris Duarttee(that passed away 1year ago) and the staff of Delta Marine. Its a very sensitive matter with Chris not being here anymore but we know he is looking down upon us and encouraging us to make our Raptor fly and outweigh any challenge that comes to light. We miss you to Bits!!!

Then don't let the first thing people hear about you be a moan about another boat-builder (justified or not).
Occasionally I use words I don't fully understand to make myself sound more photosynthesis.

Ya, was thinking the same. It's not how you do business. Just shutup and be better.
