Cliff Spediacci, owner of Hook & Ladder Guide Service, was pretty excited last month when the boat of his dreams finally arrived. Cliff will now be guiding the central California region in a new Duckworth 235 Pacific Navigator. For the lakes and rivers he fishes, there is not better platform for angling. His customers will no doubt be in ultimate comfort, and knowing Cliff’s expertise for catching salmon, trout, stripers and Mackinaw, his fish box is going to be full more often than not.
The Duckworth Offshore has been setting the ocean’s waters on fire recently. Here’s a great haul of halibut and salmon from a proud customer in Alaska. Good eats!
A few photos from the last photo shoot for the upcoming 2014 model year. Photographer, Andy Best, and videographer, Steve Crocker, captured all the action as the 235 Navigator did its thing.
For part of the day. the boat only had to sit there and look pretty, but we gave it a workout running top speed, pulling kids on the tube, and anchored up for some fall salmon fishing.
A photo outtake from a recent Duckworth video shoot on the Columbia River. We took a little break from the fishing action to let the kids go crazy. They had too much fun.
TWO FEET LONGER. MILES AHEAD.
The facts are clear: The New Duckworth 20 Advantage Outboard provides 28” of freeboard (not 27”), 34” sides (not 31”), 27-gallon fuel capacity (not 24”), a 90” beam (not 85”) and over 72” headroom with top (vs. 70”). Not to mention tops with 1” square aluminum and metal fasteners (instead of the usual round tubes and plastic). Plus a smart new side graphic that shows off your distinctive new angle on boating. It’s more boat for the dollar and more enjoyment per minute.

This is how it all started. Watch this classic Duckworth video created in the early 1980′s by founder Ernie Duckworth and his wife and son. At the time, this was state-of-the-art production, shot on 8mm film and edited together with tape and a razor blade.
The video covers a number of different segments including one early jet boat run all the way to Hells Canyon Dam on the Snake River. The narration is just priceless. Please leave your comments on the YouTube. Enjoy and thanks for watching.
