The Pain Continues – Century Goes Down
Boo, hoo… sniff, sniff… can it be? Yamaha announced yesterday that Century boats would cease production. Ouch. Just two years ago Century production peaked at over 1,000 hulls a year, with 45 dealers in 18 states. This is one of the ...
Thetford’s “Green” Boat Wash
When Thetford Marine announced that their boat wash was “redesigned” to be harmless for the environment, I thought it might be worth trying out. After all, we all want to be green boaters, but many 100-percent biodegradable cleaning products that ...
Save Your Life – Today!
Here’s a picture taken on my boat yesterday afternoon, as we cast jigs for striped bass in the mouth of the South River. That’s my daughter Mollie – she did most of the catching, as usual – and a buddy, ...

Some outboards give the boat a healthy jolt when you shift them into and out of gear. You know the clunk I’m talking about – it’s not enough to rattle your fillings, but it is significant enough to make you wonder ...
Storm Warning!
Sure, we all love to beat up on the weatherman. But he deserves it. Case in point: despite the small craft warning currently posted by NOAA for the middle Chesapeake Bay, there’s no more then a 10-knot breeze blowing right ...
Livewell Tweaks
Livewells are meant to keep baits alive, but if you’ve fished on a wide variety of boats over a long period of time, I’ll bet you’ve swung open a livewell hatch to discover a well full of dead baits, at ...
The KISS rule applies.
In the past few years we’ve seen the average saltwater fishing boats’ equipping, detail level, and cost go through the roof. Nowadays it’s downright tough to find a boat that’s simple, inexpensive, and comes without all the bells and whistles. ...
