Four builders stand out in my mind. Omie Tillet is high on my list in terms of lines and proportions. The classic styling of the cold-molded 43-foot Merritt is up there as well. Ricky Scarborough’s boats — particularly in the mid-40-foot range — have beautiful lines that really appeal to me. These boats have small houses relative to their overall length, which I love. But the builder that has inspired me the most is Rybovich, with its history, innovation, styling and finish. More importantly for me, though, is its people. Mike Rybovich continues to have a big personal influence on the way I do things. That’s my top pick.
