This old bronze plaque hangs in our office. It is our motto and guide in this technology driven world. Though we do cold mold our hulls with high tech composites and build our houses, floors, etc. from high density structural foam; the foundation of every F&S sport fishing boat is formed by vertical grain douglas fir and okume plywood.
Carbon fiber? Kevlar? Yes, every one of our boats feature these amazing composites.
But nothing provides the ride and feel of a wooden boat. NOTHING.
We have built a reputation for crafting some of the fastest custom boats on the water and the heart and soul of each is shaped from real wood; just as god intended.
