Michael Rybovich & Sons 78 | Boat Review

By Capt. Jen Copeland

With two Ryboviches under his belt, the owner of Persistence, Hull No. 5 by Michael Rybovich & Sons, knew exactly what he wanted for boat number three.

Modern Technology Is Changing The Sport Fishing Boat

By Bernard McCormick

Sport fishing is a lesser part of the overall boating scene in South Florida. Most boat owners are in it for cruising along. But considering the enormous scope of the marine industry in the state, fishing boats are still a major economic factor.

There are four builders in the Stuart area alone.
