Don’t Forget Your Sunglasses!

Heading out on the water without a quality pair of polarized sunglasses is just crazy talk! Polarized sunglasses not only help you see things in or above the water you couldn’t normally see, they protect your eyes (you only get one set!) from the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Trailer Smarter: Check Those Codes!

When it comes to trailering your boat, besides keeping your trailer in tip-top shape, keeping the vehicle you tow with up-to-spec is just as crucial. If you are throwing a check engine light (CEL), the odds are you’re losing precious towing power and eating up unnecessary dollars at the gas pump.

Renegade Nomad 20

Steady design and ride set apart the Renegade Nomad 20. Offshore in the morning, inshore in the afternoon—both trips are feasible on the 20 Nomad from Renegade Marine. This 20-foot, 3-inch center console was designed to be superior.

Century 2901

If you want your new boat to be more of a family cruiser that can also fish with the best of them, start up at the bow and look for wide cushions in a wraparound seating configuration. Throw in a removable picnic table and opposing seats on the front of the center console and you have a forward area set up for entertaining.
