In the beginning there was the Whaler, Grady White, Mako, and Proline. The first Texas boats I remember were the Helton's.
The first flats boat that I remember everyone had to have was the Shallow Sport, then the Majek. Next was the Tran, and Parker. There was the poling skiff craze, and now the Haynie.
There are others I left out, but I'm sure others will have their recollections and list.
