Florida Sportsman DProjec Deamboat kicks off the 2021 season premiere with the experts at Two Rivers Boatworks exploring their creative side, taking on a custom retrofit of a brand-new poling skiff. To kick off the project, Dave at Rocky Point Boat Worx builds a one-off dash panel to bring this TRB Customs skiff over the top; FS Boating Editor George LaBonte joins Capt. Ed Zyak aboard his completely rebuilt 22’ Kenner for a day of fishing in Stuart, FL. Then, the team at Wildfire Marine tears into resurrecting and transforming a classic 25’ Bertram.
Follow Season Six of Florida Sportsman Project Dreamboat into the very heart of Stuart, Florida.
We’re setting a course for the Dreamboat District. This unassuming, half-square-mile set along Commerce Avenue houses some of the world’s leading builders of custom sportfishing boats: Jim Smith, Garlington, L&H Boats, Billy Knowles, Willis Marine and Gamefisherman. Here, also, are expert fabricators, installers, marine engine and parts dealers and custom accessory manufacturers.
If you can dream it, and it floats, your dream can become a reality here.
Blair Wickstrom, publisher of Florida Sportsman, went on to say, “You can tune in each week and follow exciting, cutting-edge work at three different builders in the Dreamboat District: L&H Boats, Wildfire Marine and Stuart Boat Works. But, expect side projects to bring you into many of the custom shops in the District.
You’ll learn tips from the experts on maintaining or improving your own boat, or you’ll learn refit solutions that may lead you to embarking on your own dreamboat project.” Or simply dip your toes into southeast Florida’s deep reservoir of boat-building history and innovation. From flats boats to center consoles to sportfishers, from rags to riches or straight off the drawing board, the dreams just keep getting better.
Continuing into season six of Florida Sportsman Project Dreamboat will be the One Man’s Dreamboat feature hosted by Florida Sportsman Boating Editor George LaBonte. He’ll visit with anglers who have already completed their dreams, digging into the answers behind their decisions.
