PDB hits the road on a delivery

As I stood in the Starcraft Marine plant with the iPad in my hand, I was very aware of the eyes that were on me as I assisted with the final inspection of the SunChaser 8522. It was as if those who use this iPad on a daily basis were eager to see my reaction to the updated approach to quality checking pontoons off the assembly line. I was given a rare opportunity to see firsthand what it was like to do the final inspection on a pontoon, but this wasn't just any pontoon. This was a pontoon that had been built on the assembly line in this northern Indiana plant and was about to take a five plus hour journey to Wisconsin to meet its new family.
