Forrester Boat Works
On today’s episode of Beyond the Buoy, I speak with Carson Forrestor of Forrestor Boatworks. Located in Suffolk Virginia, Carson builds custom boats, focusing mostly on skiffs and smaller vessels. Growing up, Carson spent summers in the Manteo, North Carolina an area where some of the most well-known boat builders call home. He would later become a captain and build a career in the sport fishing industry while simultaneously working as a fireman. It wasn’t a matter of if he would dip his toes into the boat building world, but only a matter of when. Carson has been fortunate to have family working at Buddy Davis and his career in the sport fishing community gave him a wealth of knowledge to start what has become Forrestor Boatworks.
Carson was a pleasure to speak with and I hope you enjoy learning more about this up and coming boat builder. Be sure to like, share, subscribe, and leave a five-star review! Mahalo!
Meet Carson Forrester
Joe Schneider, founder, inventor, father, outdoorsman, and all around great guy. Growing up in the Great State of Maryland, Joe took every chance he could to be out on the water or in the woods. His passion for the outdoors would follow Joe throughout his life and career. Eventually leading him to create the now famous, Huck Performance Bucket.
After a long morning catching Ballyhoo, to be used as bait, for a long day of fishing. Joe was walking down the dock carrying the precious baitfish in your typical 5-gallon bucket when the handle snapped, sending his mornings work overboard. After some choice commentary, Joe was determined to invent the best bucket on the market, solving the very problems he was having.
A Classic Design with a Smooth Ride
Every part of the bucket, right down to the nuts and bolts is made right here in the USA! Some parts are even made in the state of Maryland, home to the Huck Bucket. The only one of it's kind Huck Buckets are made from a proprietary blend of polymers making it extremely durable, while remaining light and flexible.
From the spagehtti pot handles, to the vibram sole, the Huck Bucket was designed with YOU in mind. Joe is so confident in his buckets that he created the "Huck Guarantee" where he will fix, replace, or refund any bucket that doesn't hold up to the extreme wear and tear that a your typical bucket just can't handle.
