    “This is a tremendous day for Microskiff.com. My passion to become the predominant resource for the skiff community has taken one more step forward. Our shared ideological approach to content, reviews and interactive community will advanced our reputation as the go to resource for the shallow water enthusiasts.” said Capt Jan Lemieux, President of Microskiff Inc.

    Microskiff.com is averaging well over 25,000 monthly unique visitors, making it a key player in the online boating marketplace. This acquisition will further expand the content reach of the Outdoor Hub information engine while increasing the content available to the Microskiff.com community.  By providing more videos, boat reviews, forum topics and members to interact with; Microskiff.com will continue to set the bar as the premium skiff community.

    “We are really excited to work with Capt. Jan Lemieux and provide new and existing users the opportunity to interact more closely with each other.  We feel that the increase in conversation, along with new technology implementations, will truly help integrate both the Microskiff.com and Outdoor Hub communities,” said Jon Lowen, COO of Outdoor Hub LLC.
