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.

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.

Blue Wave 2400 Pure Bay

Performance meets style is the best way to describe the Blue Wave 2400 Pure Bay. Computer engineering combined with over 40 years of boat building experience has produced a bay boat that meets the needs of the most demanding angler and looks good doing it.
