Boating How-To


Cell Signal Booster Kits

Reviews are mixed on whether or not cellular phone boosters give an adequate increase in range to justify their price, but there’s no question that an additional antenna connected wirelessly to the tiny one inside your phone can perhaps double your range, and that can make a big difference to those of us who depend on cellphones to stay in touch inshore and nearshore.

Engel Day Tripper

Hauling a load of cold drinks and lunch down the dock or along the beach? The new Engel Soft Sided Day Tripper Cooler has several carrying options—including tote handles, grab handle on the back, and perhaps best of all, comfortable, durable, vented backpack straps.

Flats Boats


Carolina Skiff 19 DLX

One big advantage of a flat bottom skiff hull is the ability to run in very shallow water, it’s mainly limited by the amount of water required for the outboard’s lower unit.

Bay Boats


G3 Bay 18 DLX

G3 is no new comer to the boating industry so when they launched the G3 Bay 18 it was engineered to be used in saltwater. They incorporated a baked-on two part urethane hull finish and a Tuff Coat spray in interior liner.

Center Consoles


Everglades 255

A family-friendly fishing boat can be extremely comfortable with plush seating in the bow, behind the helm, on the forward portion of the center console and at the stern. It can be well equipped for fishing but the main emphasis is on including the family on the majority of your outings.

Pursuit OS355

The 2016 Pursuit OS355 represents a keel-up redesign based on the 345 model introduced in 2008. “We had one goal, which was to maintain tradition but bring new, clean styling and exterior lines,” said Chris Gratz, Pursuit Director of Engineering. The team brought to the OS355 some 80 new design features, which are on display literally from stem to stern.
