Boat Biography:

2014 marked the Assault on Patcong Creek debut of Tinboat. This 16′ 1972 Chrysler aluminum v-hull is no stranger to Patcong Creek. It is crewed by Captain John Somers, and his wife Jackie. John and Jackie have been crabbing the Patcong Creek and the surrounding bodies of water for years.

Will that experience, plus a few new tricks learned by the crew while crabbing aboard Bushelled Out late in the season, equate to a tournament victory? Stay tuned to find out.
