The Aluminum Pilothouse: Saturday Pants
Newly acquired for the 2018 season, our 25 foot Anderson Offshore is a true offshore workhorse. Custom built by renowned Vancouver Island welder Lawrence Anderson (known for his work with Lifetimer Boats), Saturday Pants is a unique vessel designed for a diverse array of tasks, but especially thrives in the heavy-weather, offshore environment. While almost perfect as a platform for all-weather fishing, it also functions well as a fast water taxi with its deep, spacious cuddy cabin, with seating for up to 6, and a head for longer trips. Top-of-the-line, brand-new radar, navigation, and electronics, plus a twin outboard configuration allow her to venture anywhere while maintaining safety as our number one priority. Our passenger capacity is 8, but we run with a maximum of 6 plus gear. For fishing trips, however, we limit passengers to 4. This vessel is insured and registered as a commercial passenger vessel with Transport Canada.
The RHIB: Scooty Puff
We are proud to have one of the most capable mid-sized work/patrol Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats in the Pacific Northwest...a bold statement for sure, but performance speaks for itself. Scooty Puff is a Gemini Elite Patrol - 22'6 foot, 300hp with reinforced beaching keel. This boat will do 50+ knots and is uniquely suited to covering ground quickly and effectively. Top-of-the-line navigation, electronics, communication, and safety equipment ensure that the thrill of this boat ride will be matched by its safety. Our passenger capacity is 10, but we run with a maximum of 7 plus gear. This vessel is insured and registered as a commercial passenger vessel with Transport Canada.
