I've always been a serious Florida History guy. Here are some photos gathered from around Florida

Of course A restored boat needs a new Trailer, Thanks to the great staff at Boatmaster, Joe and Seth for all of their hard work on the new design. The best Trailer made !!!


My Silver King 16 was custom built in 1993 and I have been using her ever since. While there many great skiffs out there, in my opinion The Silver King is one of the finest flats boats ever made anywhere by anyone, it has everything a guide looks for in a boat. After 21 years, in the fall of 2014 she was completely restored. New Engine, Fuel Tank, Fuel System, New Hydraulics, New Electrical and she is once again like brand new. Thanks to Mark and Chris at Portside Customs !!!

The Silver King 16 when she was brand new - 21 years ago.
