There’s lots to look at and take in at the Seattle Boat Show (Indoors +Afloat) and always something new for boating enthusiasts of every persuasion. The Seattle Boat Show is the largest show on the West Coast and the third largest in the U.S., and as such it is often the place where manufacturers choose to debut their new models. 2014 is no exception. But there’s also tons of fun to be had at the Show. http://www.seattleboatshow.com/
Thanks to Duckworth dealer, Precision Marine, in Idaho Falls, ID, we had the opportunity to take a few Ultra Magnums up a remote river to one of the most picturesque spots anywhere in the world. This waterfall is real, and even more stunning than the photos can capture. Any guesses where it might be? You’d need a Duckworth with an inboard jet to get there. Give up? It’s the South Fork of the Salmon River in Northeast Idaho. The falls are named Fall Creek Falls
Gentlemen… we all know it’s a common misperception among the ladies that a Duckworth boat is purely a fishing boat. Certainly, it excels at sportfishing, but there are so many other exciting ways to use your Duckworth. If you’re thinking about a new boat, and the wife and kids are pushing you towards one of those fiberglass models (that lose their value before you drive off the lot,) we made this video for you. Click the link below and “conveniently” leave it displayed on your computer for your wife to intercept. Or better yet, view it with the music turned up loud and ask the kids to gather-round to view the internet’s fastest-trending new video. In no time, they’ll be on board. And, you’ll be on your way to getting the Duckworth boat of your dreams. (You can thank us later.)
We snuck out one last time to capture photos for the 2014 brochure. The chances of finding good weather in Oregon, in November, where this shot was taken, has about the same odds as catching a salmon on the Mississippi River. However, this time we got lucky. This is a Duckworth Navigator 215 SE. The “SE” package is a very nicely equipped set of accessories and features that dials the boat in for multipurpose use.
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.
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.
