About the Show

About

We’re setting a course for the Dreamboat District. This unassuming, half-square-mile set along Commerce Avenue houses some of the world’s leading builders of custom sportfishing boats. Here, also, are expert fabricators, installers, marine engine and parts dealers and custom accessory manufacturers. 
  
If you can dream it, and it floats, your dream can become a reality here. 
  
Blair Wickstrom, publisher of Florida Sportsman, went on to say, “You can tune in each week and follow exciting, cutting-edge work at three different builders in the Dreamboat District: Two River Boatworks, Rocky Point Boat Worx and Wildfire Marine. But expect side projects to bring you into many of the custom shops in the District. 
  
You’ll learn tips from the experts on maintaining or improving your own boat, or you’ll learn refit solutions that may lead you to embark on your own dreamboat project.” Or simply dip your toes into southeast Florida’s deep reservoir of boat-building history and innovation. From flats boats to center consoles to sport fishers, from rags to riches or straight off the drawing board, the dreams just keep getting better. 
  
Continuing into season six of Florida Sportsman Project Dreamboat will be the One Man’s Dreamboat feature hosted by Florida Sportsman Boating Editor George LaBonte. He’ll visit with anglers who have already completed their dreams, digging into the answers behind their decisions. 

About The Shops
  
In season six of Florida Sportsman Project Dreamboat, we’ll be following exciting, cutting-edge work at three different shops in the Dreamboat District: Two Rivers Boat Works, Wildfire Marine, and Rocky Point Boat Worx. Each shop will have a host active in making their client's dreams become reality. 
  
Dale Kallaway and his Two Rivers Team 
  
Starting off in the boating and marine industry in South Africa, Kallaway didn't have these amazing center consoles to work on. “Ever since arriving, it has been our dream to own and work on these beauties. We are glad to have you all witness our journey and can't wait to show you what else has yet to come,” commented Kallaway, Founder/CEO. 
  
Debbie and Mike Sternberg of Wildfire Marine. 
  
Mike and Debbie Sternberg with Wildfire Marine specialize in restoring classic Sea Crafts but accept just about any project dropped by, none too small or too large. Mike and Debbie do all the work themselves, in addition to caring for their six-month-old grandchild. After 14-years of working at Pursuit Boats, there aren’t many people that can wire a boat like Debbie. Man, woman or grandmother.
