Love it! That's pretty much exactly what I'd like myself. Any more details on this "motor forward" boat?

Cool old photo from the late 70's of the old factory with boats in various stages of completion. Boat is a Classic with low sides, behind that a classic with high sides, way in the back of the photo is a custom workboat. Neat snapshot!

Prior to the two-piece windshield both low and high sided Boats we’re all three piece. There was a transition period, ultimately both low and high sided boats received the new two-piece windshield. The two piece windshield made it much easier to get out on the beach especially with large objects, ice chest etc. Glen

Bob Wooldridge celebrated his 93rd birthday this week!
He was instrumental in moving the company to Seattle back in 1973 from Grants Pass, OR. Bob still drives himself to the shop where he makes the rounds checking in with the crew.

Bob is looking good for 93. It's all that clean living and jet boating.
