Wooldridge is expanding there line of Pilot models this spring. With all the requests Grant Wooldridge received for larger boats at this years boat show here they have decided to offer a larger line of the pilots. The bottom will be 8ft x1/4 with a 9.6 beam and 28'9 ft long. There will be an extra foot in width in the cabin, as well as more storage and additional wood cabinet doors, wood trim accents with storage space above the side windows.
They are offering rear door panels under the fish box in the transom and a cool Delorean style front hatch. This hatch is a sky lite for light in the cuddy, then opens up with 2 gas cylinders for access to the bow, not just a square hatch, but it contours with the cuddy top kind of like an L shape for those that would rather not reach the bow of the boat by way of the walk around sides. They can build this same hull style in a smaller boat was well but the 28'9 fits on the EZ Loader aluminum trailer they have been using. I will try and get some pics soon.
