What's happening at the Wooldridge shop

Post by glen wooldridge » Tue Jan 13, 2015 11:19 am

This is a 20’ XL that is loaded, loaded, loaded with options.
Grant just ran it over at the lake. (Every boat we put power on, we test on the water.) It will be in the Puyallup Sportsman Show January 21st -25th. Glen

Its got built in hydraulic power steering. The rigging tube is stationary. It does not swing with the motor. It feels really good. The shift & throttle controls are fly-by-wire.
I’d say, not a lot, we only build about 100 boats a year. Glen

My Dad helped me deliver two boats to the shipper today. (Dad is 90yrs. old) I sure am blessed my dad is great. The two boats (17' AK and a 20' Sport Offshore) are going to Burkeshore Marina. They should be there next week. They both have the new 115 Merc 4-stroke (Nice motors). Light and good power. Eric, from Merc and I did a test on both boats Tuesday. I should have their test sheet maybe next week. I will post them when I get them. Glen

David and James recently picked up their new boat! After a few visits to the factory, we came up with a 24' Super Sport Offshore Cuddy model for them, since they wanted lots of cockpit room for fishing, a covered operating area and a place to sleep while exploring the bays and inlets of the Pacific Northwest.
Here's a few pics. W/B
