Grady-White Canyon 271 FS

Our first look at the Grady-White Canyon 271 FS. We like the looks of this boat. Couple that with Grady’s reputation for smooth rides and durability and this model should be a force to be reckoned with.

How to Replace the Hatches on Your Boat

Hinckley Talaria 34R

A Mate For Life

Working as a mate on a fishing boat, where you crease the inlet in the morning, watch the sun rise, breathe fresh salty air and get paid to do it, is one of the best forms of employment on the planet. My first paying job was washing a half-day fluke boat.
