Here is a beautiful 20’ ‪#‎Alaskan‬ XL with loads of goodies ready to go with a very happy customer! Josh is rabid fisherman and wanted a versatile boat that could handle the many different fisheries he loves. This AK XL has dual side trays, wash down system, multi-batteries, ‪#‎Sawyer‬ composite oars, electronics, canvas top, Lee Lock anchor system to name just some of the options. Of course it’s powered by an ‪#‎Evinrude‬ Etec 105 jet main and ‪#‎Yamaha‬ T9.9 kicker. Gonna be many memories made with this one! Congrats Josh!

Very nice looking boats with lots of fun custom items. What type of diamond plate is that, Grade? How does that do with the salt water? What size wire are you guys welding with? We have been welding mainly aluminum for the last 4 months in the shop. Half TIG welding and the other with a MIG welder.
Anything is possible. People that say No have not tried hard enough. :smitty:

#Wooldridge #boats and friends went to watch the #Mariners beat up on the #Texas #Rangers on Wednesday. We all had a blast and it wouldn't have mattered if we won but did we ever! #Seattle took the Rangers down with a score of 8 to 3. Two home runs in the first inning with one of them being a grand salami! Here are some pictures we took of the fun.

Here is a 17’ Alaskan XL console model we just finished for a fly fishing guide out in Michigan. A beautiful boat with a nice open floor plan that gives the fly fisherman room to cast as well as a brace floor balance (this he sent to us for factory install). Notice the oars for those times an angler needs to be stealthy as well as the kicker motor to make quicker adjustments. The 17’ XL has been a very popular boat whether it’s purpose is to fly fish, side drift, pull plugs or just to have a small but super stable platform for anchoring and casting. With its wide 6’4” bottom and 98 ½” beam, it fishes like a large boat and maneuvers like a compact car. We’re always happy to create the perfect boat for our customer’s needs.

Bob Wooldridge pictured here in the showroom just celebrated his 92nd birthday last weekend! Still active around the shop and always greeting everyone with a clever joke and smile. He always takes the time to thank customers who come in, whether we're building their boat or they're a potential buyer. He's a special man and Wooldridge Boats is what it is today because of him.

A little more detail of @dialupadouble 's new 20' #SS #Drifter. Some nice options on this one including dual trays, storage/fish box in bow and custom throwback graphics requested by the customer. #Powered by a 200hp @yamahaoutboards with #jet. A cool aspect of this boat build was that our welder @trd_tacoguy built this boat for @dialupadouble who happens to be his brother. Neat story

The performance date from the 29' SS is very interesting. Not much difference in fuel mileage from 11 mph up to 37 mph. Seems like there is usually more of a curve than that in most boat/motor setups. Very good economy for trolling too with the G2's.

When someone's life is on the line only the most top-notch, ruggedly durable, quality tools will do. This is why many fire/rescue departments choose #Wooldridge as their #boat of choice to get the job done. #PugetSoundFire 's new 20' #AlaskanXL shown. Many super functional options/features on this boat including folding light bar arch and rescue notches in sides of boat. #migwelding #pnwbuilt
