Casey Sherman- Wooldridge boat. I have attached a few pics of it in action, with some results! I can't tell you how happy we are with our recent addition.From the first day we sat down with Vinny to talk about getting the process started to the day I picked it up, I have had nothing but a first class experience. The whole team there really was awesome and made me feel like a part of the family. You & Rob were especially patient with my many questions and requests to watch the progress and take pictures. You really won my wife over when she was physically able to walk through and see the boats being made. There is nothing quite like passing a fellow Wooldridge boat owner on the river and getting that wave & nod that assures me that they had that same family like experience. I have fished with Eli Rico, my personal favorite guide, quite a few times over the years, and was always impressed with how the boat maneuvered in our Northwest waterways. He always seems to catch fish too, a part that I need to work on:-). I spent well over a year comparing specs, quality, price, & looks on many different brands, but could not find anything that was even close to fitting my needs the way that the Alaskan 17 ½ ft. did. It can handle any river here in Washington from the mighty Columbia to the skinny parts of the Sky. I get tons of compliments at the boat ramps, with lots of ?other brand? boat owners drooling over the aggressive look and superior performance. It was really important for us to not only find the best boat, but also to support a local company. Family owned & operated for so many years is just another reason that Wooldridge is a name that I am proud to have on the side of my boat. I look forward to a lifetime of running Wooldridge boats.
