A love of fishing and wood working combined in to one great project......

         

     Now that I have gotten older I take a more leisurely approach and fish the simple way. Recently I built this boat that is 12' 6" long with a 57" beam. It was built for standup cast ability and stability. The boat is electric powered with dual 850 ampere deep cycle batteries that allow eight hours of fishing. 4" draft allows it to get up in the shallow water where the  redfish are. Built with 3/8" plywood and Roka Epoxy with 6 ounce fiberglass. This project took about four months to complete. I wanted a boat that was eco-friendly and had the ease and ability to be maintained and launched by myself. It has fit this bill well and is a very stealthy boat that allows me to move around in the shallow saltwater marshes with ease.

 From a young age I have had a passion for fishing and being on or around the water and the great outdoors. My fishing adventures started on the banks of the Ohio River as a child and have taken me from the Capes of Virginia to the North East Coast of South America. I have caught, tagged and released many marlin, tuna, dolphin and sailfish over the years. Many of the species tagged have been recaptured and information returned to me. Some tags have been returned in as little time as two weeks and 400 miles north of the tagged location. This is a great project that gives a lot of information to us regarding migration patterns, stock health and growth rates. NOAA at Woods Hole and The ALS along with local states all have tagging programs should you wish to get involved.  My wife and I have spent many hours fishing the surf at Cape Point, North Carolina for Redfish also known as Channel Bass. This is a very special place with miles of uninhabited beaches.

The picture below was taken at Pea Island Wildlife Refuge which is just north of Cape Point and a few miles south of Oregon Inlet, North Carolina area.

 Yes that is me flying a kite, look closely at the upper left hand corner of the picture and you will see it.....

Look at this moment in time when the impossible was done. The moving of Cape Hatteras Lighthouse :  

 

And then there is my best friend Miss Lucy. What a wonderful gal she is. Lucy was a rescue dog, she was 4 years old when I got her. I have had her for 10 years now and she is my constant companion. She does really well for being 14 years old.
