West Michigan Offshore's Muskegon Powerboat...

As seems to be the issue with every pre-planned boating weekend in West Michigan, the weather forecast was making the planning interesting. Depending on what weather person you listened to, or what forecast you looked up on the internet, the weather could be anything from 6 to 8 foot waves on the lake with gale and small-craft warnings with a 90% chance of rain.

Newest Skater 28' May Be the Best 28 Yet?

When it comes to performance boats, the Skater 28 is one that is always spoke of with reverence. When Douglas Marine released the 28 Skater, it was an instant hit.

Its big Sterling blower power, and an old-school gauge dash makes it even more...

Rock the Coast and Keith Holmes Memorial Run 2019...

The start of the WMO Rock the Coast Weekend was excellent. Things started this morning with Small Craft Advisories until 9:00 PM and a forecast of waves increasing from 2 to 3's up to 5's. Not a good outlook. But, by 5:00 when the start occurred, the lake had settled down to 1 to 3's and the run turned out great. Here are a few Big-Air shots to see who aired it out the most. Before the...
