Boat eye candy. What’s your favorite

Recommended Posts

Dave Medema

I have lots of boats.  They all serve a specific purpose. I need more time to use them.

30' Duckworth Offshore XL would be sweet to have.

But as far as "eye candy", I guess I like to look at all the classic lobster boats from the northeast, Sisu and Novi style stuff.

OK, this is completely unrealistic for a working guy such as myself...but I saw these boats at the Annapolis boat show this fall and I was immediately overtaken by boat lust.  Just a little overkill for the Chesapeake..

Is that your Hell's Bay?  Fished out of a Marquesa with a guide in the Keys for a few years.  Certainly best of breed.

Good eye, unfortunately I don’t fish enough in the flats to warrant a boat like this but I love to fish out of them.  I’ve been in lots of flats boats over the years, Hells Bay and Maverick are my two current favorites.

 

The driftboat is mine - Stealthcraft Pintail.

Maverick HPX for the flats and the New Jersey when you really need some naval gunfire, seen her shoot.

Power boats are about as interesting as a loud, smelly city bus to me.  Useful for getting from Point A to Point B, but that's about it.

 

Sail is another matter.  I love the look of a cutter rigged canoe stern boat, like this Tayana.  Could live on one of these and go around the world - long one of my dreams, but now I'm too damn old.

So, what I actually have is this basic little guy - Com-Pac:

I prefer a flying boat.

Putting canoes and kayaks aside, I think once I'm old and feeble I want to spend my Octobers in a Rangeley Lakes Boat decoying divers into a wild rice paddy.

While I own a Ranger, it’s hard to beat a cedar strip canoe for beauty. There are lots of beautiful sailboats, my favorites incorporate long ends.

Dumb question: what is a drift boat for and how does it work? Never been aboard one.
