My Boats

1971 Proline1971 24′ Proline

I am very proud of this boat.  I built it with my own hands.  One of the largest flats boats in our area.  This boat can accommodate up to 4 anglers.  With a full crew she draws less than 12″ of water.

Powered by a 2017 4-stroke Yamaha.  Smooth dry ride in any sea conditions we might encounter.

I use this boat for most of my tarpon fishing in the Boca Grande area.



Silver King1992 Silver King Skiff

Traditional backcountry skiff.  I had this skiff custom built back in 1992.  It is garage kept and in immaculate shape.

Powered by a 90hp Evinrude E-tec.

The ultimate fly fishing and sight casting skiff.  The perfect boat for fishing deep in the backcountry of the Florida Everglades and Charlotte Harbor.

I use this skiff for all of my trips in the Everglades.


I have owned these boats for a long time.  Both are very special to me.
I wouldn’t trade either of them for any other boat in the world.
