This is my grandfather Bob Wooldridge helping deliver a 20' XP to the shippers yesterday which is heading to ‪#‎Alaska‬. He turned 91 on Thursday and still loves helping out any way he can. Without him‪#‎WooldridgeBoats‬ would not be where it is today. Thanks Grandpa!

Grant took a customer for a test ride on the lake this morning. The boat is a 20' Alaskan XL powered by a Yamaha 250 VMAX SHO. With the Seattle weather lately, it must have been a chilly test drive!

Here is a current photo of our showroom. These are boats heading for the shows later in January. The zippy 17 foot Alaskan will be in the Evinrude Outboard booth at the Seattle Boat Show, the sea worthy white 20 foot Sport Offshore will be featured at our dealer West Coast Marine’s booth at the same show and finally, the 24’ SSO Pilothouse may be featured at the Puyallup Sportsman Show in late January as well. Of course, we have a full factory of boats under construction as well!

Nick an employee here at Wooldridge Boats recently went on vacation in Montana and ran across this really cool Wooldridge drift boat. The owners said it was from the 60's and it has been in their family since they purchased it from Glen Wooldridge Sr. I bet it has some really cool stories to tell.

Employee Nick took his new to him 23' Sport Drifter out for a spin on Lake Washington early Sunday morning. It was 23º outside. The boat is powered by a 496 Kem Equipment motor and a Hamilton 212 pump. It will be in the shop tomorrow for some upgrades and some minor maintenance.

Is there an economy/performance advantages of the inboard setup vs. the max OB jet?
I only do what the voices in the Tackle Box tell me to.
