Jerry Montgomery, designer of the SAGE 17, and Sal Glesser, owner of Sage Marine, will present a boat design, construction, and Q&A session Tuesday evening, February 15. at the Havasu Pocket Cruiser Convention (HPCC). Details will be posted in the seminar section of the HPCC www-site in a few days.

This will be the prototype's first time on water and an exciting opportunity for the HPCC participants to see the SAGE 17 in action.
