Our new vessel "Explorer",
designed and built in 1996, is a custom 30' aluminum
It serves us well in providing the stability, comfort, visibility
and feel of a larger vessel in combination with the speed, beachability,
and maneuverability of a smaller boat.
The Explorer has a heated cabin, an enclosed head (bathroom), and
is beachable for easy landings.
