"She Oughter" is a 23-feet long aluminum drop-bow motorboat designed and manufactured by Ottercraft
Kingston, Washington. She is an open boat with a Bimini top for
rain protection. There are no "facilities" on board.
Powered by a 115 hp Yamaha main engine and a 8hp auxiliary trolling/"get home" engine, she makes between 20 and 23 knots
with the maximum load of approximately 2000 pounds, or six charter
passengers plus the Captain. She is fully equipped
with electronic equipment for safety, navigation and for the location
of fish or scuba diving sites. Her design permits her to make a
landing on almost any beach, allowing for easy access to the beach from
the bow door.
We currently offer the following:
* Pleasure cruise pictures
The most popular scenic and fun cruises are
either down to Langley on Whidbey Island or up to Coupeville on Whidbey (half-day)
or up to La Conner (full day). All of these wonderful little towns have
great restaurants and lots of antique and specialty shops and museums
that you can spend hours exploring. Combine a trip through and
back awe-inspiring Deception Pass with a meal and browsing stop at
La Conner or Coupeville and you have a very full and satisfying full-day of
enjoyable crusing. Also note that our drop-bow configuration makes her easily
accessible to physically challenged outdoors people. We welcome
the opportunity to be of service to physically challenged clients.
