Video: Inventor Tests New Circular Skiff for Stability


When Jeff Lizzio enticed anglers with a introductory video of his saucer-shaped Ultraskiff 360 in June, he wasn’t expecting such a large response. After a torrent of emails and calls to his office, Lizzio told OutdoorHub that he was quickly overwhelmed by demand with only a small inventory of boats available for sale.

OutdoorHub will be publishing a full interview with Lizzio later this week.
