• Here, we give you a story that is hundreds of years old. It's been told so many times in so many ways by so many people that you may have heard it...But, you have not heard it from us until now.

  • Be Grateful for the Chesapeake. Be Grateful for the Chesapeake. Be Grateful for the Chesapeake, for here, you will find Plenty of Fish!

  • The Scout 210 SXF was built for boaters by a boater. While this may not be unusual, it is good to know that a boatbuilder who devotes his Saturdays to R&D (not R&R) and likes it is behind these boats.
