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.

Where to Vacation? Go Big or Stay Home!

We speak about luxury vacations, budget vacations, vacations that are fun for the kids, and many more areas of travel at this time of year. But there is also a category that many do not touch upon because they “assume” it is far too difficult for those on a budget to be able to enjoy these jaw-dropping wonders. However, whether you are a backpacker looking to “become a journeyman” and all you need is the price of the plane ticket; or one that is saving up for that “ultimate trip,” these are locations where either can go to create memories that will be among the greatest and grandest of their entire lives.

How Are Retail Sales in 2017?

Despite consumer uncertainty, as well as a very sluggish beginning to 2017, the U.S. retail sales industry is projected to increase 4% this year. Headlines show that many retailers and companies posted “soft” holiday sales to end 2016, which caused some notable retailers to either cut jobs or close stores as a result. However, when it comes to 2017, the National Retail Federation (NFR) released an economic forecast projecting the retail industry (this excludes automobiles, gas stations, and restaurants) to grow and reach that 4% increase aim.
