John from Remote Alaska Mission's, http://remotealaskamissions.com/, got to test drive his 25' Super Sport Drifter with a Hamilton 213 and Yanmar 8LV yesterday.
He wants to thank all the people and church's who are showing through their support and continued support, that they believe in what he is doing. Glen

This is a 25' 8" Sportster Open Tiller model that's currently in welding.
It has a 106" beam, 30" sides, 12° deadrise with 18° in the bow, plus a jet tunnel for super shallow running and aggressive cornering and handling.
The wider gunnels will have top loading storage. w/b

Eastside Fire's 1983 Wooldridge came in to get a new trailer. This was originally the town of Duvall's Fire Department boat. When Duvall bought a new 20' Super Sport Drifter Inboard, Eastside Fire bought this one from them. Glen

John’s massive 25' Sportster on its way to rigging! As you can see, lots of storage in this boat. John also had it custom painted to match his truck, always a nice touch! He will be using this boat on Washington’s rivers and coastal waters.

Terrance, one of our customers stopped by the shop today to show off a boat he has proudly owned for 14 years! It is a 1996 SUV, and he has been very happy with it. Check out the polish he put on the aluminum!

Here are some pics from longtime customer and friend Todd Graham on an outing he went on with another Wooldridge Boat owner:

Hi Grant! Went out to Prince William Sound for two days with Brian and Larry on "three poles", Brian's 27' Pilothouse. Had a great time, got 3 limits of silvers within an hour, limited out on halibut, red salmon, got lots of yellow eye black bass, one nice ling cod. Great scenery with calm seas, we barbecued moose hamburgers on the way in!!!! - Todd Graham

Just finished up this 25’ beast of a boat! It’s our new Sportster model with tiller option and custom seating. Those wide flat gunnels give this boat a massive look and feel!

Check out these two 25’ Sportsters that were just delivered to their customers. The grey one is Ryan McCaughan of Riverside Guide Service. Both of these had custom paint jobs and were powered by 250hp Evinrude Etec’s. Lots of custom features in each of these boats ranging from custom seat/storage boxes and custom bow storage to Miller Marine sliding rod tracks and top-loading rod lockers. The performance on each of these boats are impressive. Designed to fish Washingtons waters, these boats will run the shallow rivers such as the Cowlitz to the bigger waters like the Columbia and Puget Sound. When the fishing gets slow, Sportsters have enough “V” to cross the bar and head to the ocean safely. They are both already running the rivers full of fishermen. If you want to get out in one, book a trip with Ryan and he will put you on the fish. You can contact Ryan at (206) 533-4105, e-mail him at seattlefishingtrips@yahoo.com or visit his website at www.seattlefishingtrips.com

These are of a custom 24’ Super Sport Offshore Pilothouse just getting ready for paint. Note the custom cuddy wall and the large opening for our gull wing door. This boat is unique in that it doesn’t have self-bailing decks and a 6” longer cuddy than normal. Once it is complete, it will be shipped to its new owners in Skagway, AK.

does stretching the cuddy that amount or making a 20ft boat a 21ft add that much cost? also does removing things like stand up head on 20ft pilot house add additional cost? or is it a neutral on the price.

Stretching the the cuddy or adding length will add some cost, but it is reasonable. Also, not adding a stand up head will save you some as well. Thanks! W/B.
