Where do you want to go today? How about Alert Bay, British Columbia? The Chinook Liza Bee is on its way.

In a quiet B.C. cove. If this doesn't look like the place to be, I don't know what does. Well, it could be sunny, but the dock is dry. It's OK to use a Nexus boat. We don't really recommend the glass case in the living room approach. Salmon, halibut, Ling Cod, yumm yumm. Not your usual magazine cover photo. The mostly naked models must have just stepped ashore. Some interior photos of Liza Bee can be seen on the Chinook Interiors web page.

Staying with the sort of gray day theme, here's Rebecca at speed in the San Juan Islands. Notice how beautifully the bow wave curls away from the hull. These are very dry running boats. Rich has also chosen to have a canvas top with a hatch for better visibility. When he's not partying with us in the San Juans, he dives the Oregon coast in his Chinook. He says sometimes he has to work.

Yankee on a sunny day. Her Honda 90 pushes her very well with her family aboard. See how that flat wake keeps her dry.

People often ask us if our boats can be beached. Absolutely. Doesn't hurt them at all, other than the loss of a bit of antifouling paint. It's fun to take one of these boats cruising because you can go anywhere that the water's deep enough for an outboard.

Fresh water is fine, too. That won't hurt it either. Such a light and easily trailered boat encourages one to go to places that are a little further away.
