The enduring legacy of Willis Rossiter
The legacy of the Rossiter Skiff outshines that of even its most popular fiberglass counterparts. The family of skiffs that evolved on the mid-coast island of Islesboro, Maine, has been around for decades, and summer residents and local fishermen alike continue to use these boats more than a half-century after the design’s debut. Some of the boats have become family heirlooms.
A Lightweight Cruiser/Racer
Sweet Pea offers sport cruising on a budget: a fairly fast shallow-water cruiser for those who prefer the comforts of a cabin and a portable toilet to a tent and a trowel. The boat could even be a contender in adventure races, where a place for the off-watch crew to rest is more of an advantage than speed.
Honoring the boats and the men who saved the Grand Canyon
In the early 1960s Martin Litton came to the McKenzie River in Oregon to write a story. The wooden drift boats he saw there would change his profession, his life, and river running on the Colorado River forever.
The trim of a small boat dictates where you need to put your weight; adding width and wings to the center thwart will give you a place to sit when you’re where you belong.
Emergency laser signals have an impressive range and don't burn out in a few short minutes.
An exotic steel that can take abuse, neglect and a sharp edge
Tom Potrykus launched his center-console outboard skiff, TRADEOFFS, in the shallow inshore salt water near Beaufort, South Carolina. When the hull touched the water for the first time, it was already 15 years old.
