Quicklook: Tidewater 2500 CB

by Ted Lund

 

Stepped-hull bay boats are all the rage with a number of today’s marine manufacturers, but South Carolina-based manufacturer Tidewater Boats really took their time before jumping into the mix with what is a solid choice for recreational anglers and professional fishing guides.

Tidewater turned to one of the best in the business: Brian Forehand, who holds the world record monohull speed record of 180.

Taping out at 25 feet, 2 inches, the 2500 features a solid nine-foot beam. The 2500 Carolina Bay is a large, stepped-bottom hull bay boat that positions itself with some of the other high-end bay boat manufacturers without the expense.

 

Tidewater’s 2500 Carolina Bay is a full-featured boat with standard offerings, including electronic tilt power steering, hydraulic jack plate, and trim tabs. Fishermen will appreciate the twin 30-gallon live wells, Tidewater’s built-in Icehouse cooler and lockable, under gunwale rod storage. Ample storage is provided in the bow, as well as a below-deck anchor locker and integrated below deck bucket storage.

As with all members of the Tidewater Boat family, the only limit to options is your imagination. The company offers a wide variety of t-tops, leaning posts, , and seating options. And, like every other tidewater, the 2500 Carolina Bay also features all-composite, no wood construction with fiberglass stringers and a hand-laid fiberglass hull. Each boat is rigged to AYBC standards and backed by a 10-year transferable hull warranty.

Vacation Locations: Knowledge is Fun Too!

Most children (and adults, too) will either roll their eyes or sigh when, while speaking about vacation locations, the word “learning” just happens to be mentioned. Yes, it is a fact that school trips take all of us during our younger years to everything from museums to libraries to historic locations in order to teach us things we should know. But when thinking about your vacation, you should know that by considering journeying to a particular place that just happens to register high on the historical or educational meter, you could have even more fun.

Is Social Media Still Growing?

It was in 1999, Bill Gates wrote a book titled, “Business @ the Speed of Thought.” Within these pages, the man who became the computer world’s wizard made massively bold predictions that, at the time, sounded ridiculous and outrageous to those who read them. But when you look at how the social media realm has grown over the past few decades, it is important to take note that not only did his predictions from 1999 come true, but they are also responsible for seeing social media continue to grow by leaps and bounds to this day.
