How To Choose

what boat will suit your particular needs?

"It is the nature of this creature to swallow men and ships, and even whales and everything else within reach. It stays submerged for days, then rears its head and nostrils above surface and stays that way at least until the change of tide."

Some considerations when deciding on the boat that is right for you.

Should I get an aluminum or fiberglass hull?

This is a completely personal choice but can be a consideration given where and how the boat is to be used. If the boat will be repeatedly beached then the aluminum hull may be the right choice.

How long will my boat last?

Depending on use and care the boat should have a life of 10 to 30 years.

Standard colors are what we have in stock which is generally orange, red, black, light gray. Other colors are available at different times and can be special ordered.
