For the past 11 years I have been in Oregon selling, consigning or trading all types of boats motors and trailers. My experience is in both new and used packages or individual motors, or trailers. One unique package I specialize in is the tiller steer aluminum jet boat which is the Northwest fisherman's dream. Out here the water levels fluctuate so often we chase Salmon over islands! When you literally have to run a boat in circles so you create a wave to drive your boat over that next island just to get to that fishing spot you have a serious fishing disorder. Don't forget, you've got to drive back over it to get home. If you think I'm kidding come on out!
Needless to say we don't rely on feet under way we use inches! This teaches us some important life lessons based off of experiences and the magic of electronics. Whether it's the GPS, depth finder or satellite weather map, you must have it onboard your boat. Lakes become very easy to maneuver once you have run these rivers. The reward of eating that Salmon, Trout or Steelhead you caught is priceless once you have experienced the very trip to get it. Reliability in a boat is a must and without it you are sunk!
Prior to the boating industry I worked in the bar / restaurant field including upper management for many years. This allowed me to hear many fish stories, great bands and gave me the opportunity to meet many top athletes along the way. As far as hobbies I enjoy almost any sport either playing or watching. Whether it's the Pittsburgh Steelers (keep an eye on the Eagles with Chip as the captain), Oregon Ducks, any baseball team or Lebron making his path I enjoy them all. I like to fish, ski (snow or water), scuba dive, camp or do pretty much anything you can think of on the water. The best experience is finding your own little secluded camping and fishing spot out in the middle of nowhere surrounded by trees and mountains!
