Boating How-To

Wi-Fi Sonar Logging

Marine Wi-Fi technology has some clear utility for owners of large vessels. Say you’re down in the crew cabin, and you want to look at navigation data or a camera view of the cockpit. No sweat. With a network Wi-Fi hub, such as the Simrad GoFree or Raymarine RayControl, you can turn your phone or tablet into a remote Multi Function Display that lets you look at, and even control, your chartplotter, camera—or anything else that runs through your network.

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


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.

Center Consoles


Cobia 344CC

If you want to have the fish catching features of a tournament machine and be able to cruise the islands in comfort, a boat with a double-stepped hull for performance that’s loaded with a long list of standard creature comforts might be the perfect blend.

Express / Cuddy


World Cat 295

Cat hulls are famous for their ability to lay down a chop and when you combine that with the extra beam that carries forward, you end up with a very large, stable platform. All of this additional square footage of cockpit lets the manufacturer add in features normally reserved for much larger vessels.
