Yeah, Made in the USA is always a great pitch. You even see "Designed in the USA"...get it in anyway you can!
NRS' factory is in Mexico and the fabric for these boats, according to the description, is made in the USA. But, "American fabric, assembled in Mexico", doesn't have the best ring to it.
Our boats have been made in the same factory in South Korea, for over 30 years. Everything is done "in house", no outsourcing, including the fabric.
