NEWS: Cape Codder Boats Signs on as NSSB Sponsor!
We are excited to announce our newest sponsor, Cape Codder Boats of Swampscott. These rock-solid fishing machines are made right here on the North Shore in “the old-fashioned way – by hand” with a legacy that goes back nearly 50 years.
They offer skiff models in 10 and 14 feet and 19 and 24-foot center consoles. All of their boats “are designed to withstand the infamous waters of the northeast.”
Since the late 60’s “the Codder” has been regarded as a quality built, rugged boat suited for the rigors of everyday commercial fishing. It is also regarded by many sport fishing anglers as the inshore striped bass fishing boat. Whether it’s a weekend with the family or heading out every morning before dawn to make your living, the cape codder is up for the challenge.
In addition to sponsoring the Blitz, Cape Codder will be on hand at the after party showing off their 19-foot model and giving away a bunch of tees, hats and their infamous Grateful Dead stickers.
We’re also excited to have them participate by entering a team in this year’s tournament. That is what we call a great sponsor!
So go like their FB page Cape Codder Boat Company, visit their website and think of some good questions you can ask them on the 17th!
