A Short History of Boats

What are we to make of this love affair mankind has with vessels that transport us to and fro across the world’s waterways? Since as early as the Mesolithic age (10,000 to 5,000 BC) the human race has been drawn to bodies of water for both sustenance and serenity, and has, in the process, devised countless variations of watercraft designed to either float or plane them atop these waters.

Outfitting Your Boat for Offshore Fishing

One of the most enjoyable experiences we have in our industry is helping our clients outfit or purchase their boat for offshore waters. Sharing the optimism of new and endless fishing and boating opportunities is special to us and we take a lot of pride in our customer’s success stories and growth. A lot of people who move to a coastal location or have just purchased their first vessel may feel intimidated as to what equipment is mandated by law, needed for success and what may be simply a waste of money and time. With modern marine technology being what it is and the endless fishing rods, reels and tackle on the market, minimizing your learning curve is an asset to the offshore fishing rookie.

Anglers searching for a top-of-the-line bay boat with exceptional ride, loads of room and speed to burn will love the Triton 240 LTS. With an 8-6 beam and loads of dry storage, this space-machine is made to carry you and your favorite crew plus all the tackle you’ll ever want whether the day’s target is redfish in the marshes, tarpon on the flats or stripers outside the surf.

Duroboat Review

All Duroboat models share the modified-V hull that is the optimum compromise between a seaworthy ride, and fuel efficiency. The patented Durojoint system of hull construction was invented in Australia in the late 1970s. The secret of the durojoint is that the compressive forces that shock the seams of an aluminum hull are dissipated along the continuous edge of the durojoint.

Pathfinder 2600 HPS

From offshore running and gunning one hour to pitching to potholes on the flats the next- all with real comfort, confidence and success. This is the new Pathfinder 2600 HPS, a combination of never before seen offshore running performance in a boat that will still seriously fish in 15″ of water. Imagine the possibilities: a high performance, twin- stepped hull and huge casting decks with walk-around gunwales; fore and aft offshore tournament-grade livewells and undergunwale fly rod storage; 27 inches of exterior freeboard, still trolling motor capable and with a fishbox big enough to fit a smoker king.

Finally a bay boat with true performance and speed. The new 675 Ultimate Bay is designed around our bass boat pad bottom with built-in trim tabs to tame the chop on rough days.
