For folks who are into stuff that’s made in the good ol’ USA, Quoddy’s been creating shoes and moccasins up in Maine since the early 1900s and they’re now selling a handmade Boat Moc (it comes in various colors) that’s stout, good-looking, and equipped with a gelcoat-grabbing, hand-sewn Vibram sole. The company makes each pair individually—no assembly-line workers need apply. To order, simply do a tracing of each of your feet on a piece of paper and send the tracings off to Quoddy. Takes them from three to six weeks to complete and ship your new Boat Mocs to you.
When Regulator Marine decided to vault the 40-foot mark, they did it as only the North Carolina builder can: quad Yamaha outboards, an Armstrong bracket, and a hull ready for virtually any conditions. See the details here. ▶
