Stomping Grounds Debut Ep. 1: Aluminum Fishing Boats On Cape Cod

All of us here at Boat Trader are excited to present the premiere episode of Stomping Grounds (above). This documentary-style video series on YouTube sets out to explore our nation’s waterways and cherished boating towns and regions through a firsthand, in-person journey across the country.

From the bayou to the Rocky Mountains, and the depths of the Pacific to the sandbars of New England, Stomping Grounds showcases boaters across America explaining why they love their boat and what features make it the perfect vessel for their neck of the woods. The series uncovers unique cultures, histories and traditions while capturing the boating stories and tales behind them.

Episode One: Tin Boat Mafia

Our inaugural episode of the series travels to the outer reaches of Cape Cod, MA to visit a tight-knit, family-oriented group of aluminum boat owners. These boaters reflect on the merits of turning to their beloved waterways as a means of staying socially connected during these pandemic times. From fishing and surfing to sun bathing and building driftwood masterpieces, this episode chronicles the gang’s passion for the water and demonstrates why light-weight, easy-to-handle, shallow-water, aluminum fishing boats are their vessels of choice.

Tracker® Boats Featured: 2021 SUPER GUIDE™ V-16 SC

Tracker Boats is highlighted as a manufacturer of outstanding aluminum fishing boats, with a 2021 SUPER GUIDE™ V-16 SC fishing boat featured throughout the episode. This shallow draft aluminum boat comes equipped with two fishing chairs that can be moved to any of 5 pedestals onboard for easy casting and versatile capabilities. Equipped with a 50 HP Mercury outboard, she is fast and nimble on the water, not to mention lightweight, which is valuable on the sandbars and shoals of Cape Cod.
