1988 Silverton 40 Foot Sport Fisherman! A Fishermen's Paradise!
WALKTHROUGH OF OUR FISHING MACHINE
The Silverton 40 Convertible’s styling is conservative. Designer Bob Rioux gave the boat a long foredeck, swept-back cabin topped with a flybridge, and a distinctive stepped sheer that breaks well aft. The fishing-oriented cockpit and flybridge steering station, set up to give the helmsman a good view of the angling action, making the boat popular with anglers. Wide side decks help give the boat all-around deck access. The fiberglass hull has a modest 14 degrees of transom deadrise, and standard power came from twin 350-hp Crusader gas engines for a cruising speed of 13 or 15 mph and a top speed of around 25 mph.
Though the flybridge and deck layouts remained the same over the years, the interior went through some design changes. The original floor plan cantered on a galley/dinette to port, a step down from the saloon. Beginning with 1988 models, the galley/dinette is truly down.
The later plan replaces the bench-seat dinette with a U-shaped one. In both plans, the master stateroom is forward, with an offset bunk to port and a vanity to starboard. The head compartment has a separate shower. The saloon is roomy, taking advantage of the boat’s 14-foot beam, and came equipped with a standard convertible sofa/sleeper. An inside helm station wasn’t offered.
Just A Few Recent Client Comments:
We loved our day with you, wish we could fish every week, but we have a pile of fish to eat! WE WILL RETURN AS YOUR CLIENTS AND NEW FOUND FRIENDS! Liz Heron
Went out today for my bachelor party and had a blast these guys were great and set us up on a lot of fish. Would definitely recommend these guys for a good day of fishing Thanks again.
Friendly and knowledgeable! Such great ambassadors for Lake Huron fishing. Penny filleted our fish perfectly.
Rick and his operation are top notch!! Extremely accommodating and professional. Have wanted to go out with them for over a decade. Finally got my wish. Unfortunately my folks couldn't make the trip with my wife and I, but we had fun and caught fish! I would suggest their operation to anyone and everyone looking for a great charter fishing experience. Thanks Guys!! Especially Penny! HA!! Dixie misses you! Scott Edgar
Best Fishing Ever! Hi Rick!
Just wanted to let you know how much fun we had! Ryan and Paul and I just had a fantastic time. I know you wished for bigger and more fish for us but really our experience and the fish we did catch were just awesome!! We can't wait to join you and Chris (who was also just so amazing at taking care of us) again next year. I can't wait to do it again.
Thank you so much for such a great memory!!
Life is good when you can fish all afternoon, but is even better when you do it on your boat with your first hand man taking care of everything!! So relaxing!! Beat of luck tomorrow. Cheers, Connie
Good morning Gentleman,
Thanks for the awesome charter last night, the guys thought it was just unreal. We all had a great time, and wanted both of you to know that we appreciate the time and skill and hard work that you gave to make our fishing experience a blast. We will have to this again for sure.
Again thanks and take care.
Hi Rick - just a word of thanks to you and Chris for the great morning of fishing - you make a great team - what made the day for us was that our grandson reeled in the largest fish of the day and he was pretty excited - kind of glad that the pink salmon got away - we had the coho that night for dinner and it was delicious - we have a group coming next weekend and we'll be frying up the lake trout - look forward to our next fishing experience with you - warmest regards - Dave
About Our Service
Our Family Fishing Charter Service operates on the clean waters of Lake Huron off the shores of beautiful Kincardine, Ontario, Canada. (Where you can eat what you catch!) We target Chinook, Coho Salmon, Rainbow, Brown and Lake Trout. A few incidental catches have included Pink Salmon, Walleye and Perch.
Our customers' needs are first and of the utmost importance to us and our entire crew is committed to meeting these needs. As a result, a high percentage of our bookings are from repeat customers and referrals.
We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you one of the best services in our industry.
You will fish in comfort on board our very roomy 40 Foot Silverton Flybridge Sport Fisherman Vessel!
The ladies will appreciate the convenience of our Head (Washroom), Comfortable Cabin and Galley including a Microwave! They can even sun themselves on the Flybridge and Bow! Almost all the comforts of home! Please remember that you may enjoy a "hot meal" with the use of our microwave oven!
Have a Smartphone, Bluetooth or any other music player? Bring it along and we will play your favorite music for you.
In fact we can play a Blu-ray/DVD Movie for you or the children if you wish. (Just in case they need to settle down from all the Fishing Excitement)
We are on the water a great deal of the time and know where the fish are likely to be!
Fantastic boat for any Corporate or Large Group Requirements! We like to say you could have a dance in the cabin!
We have room for 12 people with a stand up head (bathroom), fridge, microwave and running water.
We do everything humanly possible to ensure you enjoy your "Fishing Adventure" with us!
Departure times are flexible to meet your needs.
For the avid fishermen we recommend "The Earlier The Better". This means 5:00 A.M. during the summer and somewhat later in the other months! This allows us to catch the early bite which usually occurs at dawn.
We recommend 7:00 a.m. be your latest morning departure time for any month of the season.
All fishing and safety equipment is supplied; please bring along your fishing license, soft soled shoes, proper attire for the elements, lunch & refreshments. (No Bananas Please)
We also recommend a cooler to pack your fish. An optional gratuity to our cleaner will result in your catch being cleaned professionally as fillets, steaks or otherwise prepared as per your request.

Give Us A Try! You Will Be Glad You Did!
We always have two Crew Members which ensures you have a Captain at the helm & a 1st Mate operating the fishing equipment & assisting you in catching fish. Both also complete additional tasks to ensure your trip is safe & enjoyable!
It is our opinion that one person cannot operate the vessel and fishing equipment at the same time. In fact it is impossible to offer clients safety and the best chance of catching fish with only one crew member.
Our methods result in improved service and safety to our clients, not to mention a better catch ratio!
Remember, we pride ourselves at being good at what we do! We are not satisfied unless we are the best boat on the water!
Our aim is for a safe & enjoyable trip with guests fighting fish! This of course is why we insist on two crew members!
Hours include travel time to our fishing area which is usually 10 to 20 minutes. We are very lenient on this, and you will likely be on the water for at least an extra 1/2 hour.
Please note hours begin at the scheduled departure time.

Funeral At Sea - Celebration of Life
Celebration of Life Ceremonies by Spreading Our Loved Ones Ashes at Sea is a Peaceful and Graceful Way to Pay Respects to Our Loved Ones.
A funeral at sea is a dignified, simple alternative to a conventional funeral. Scattering ashes in the sea is a time-honored tradition that is seen as more refined and less costly then funeral parlor-based services.
We will provide you with a peaceful and private means of completing this ceremony.
On your arrival you and your guests will be escorted to the vessel and be briefed on our safety procedures.
Offshore, the ceremony will begin with the vessel circling left meaning "Turning Back the Hands of Time". Weather permitting the vessel will come to a full stop with engines off and your family and friends will complete your final farewells.
The ashes will then begin their new journey, to be carried by the current, forever.
The vessel will circle the ashes to the right meaning Time and Life Goes On completing the figure eight infinity sign. The vessel's bell will be rung eight times meaning "End of Watch" and as you hear the bell, you may toss your flowers as a gesture of "Letting Go" which ends the ceremony.
We will provide you with certificate of the exact time and coordinates of your Celebration of Life.
You may of course change this to any procedure which is best for you.
Legal Notes: Scattering Cremated Ashes in Ontario:
The practice of scattering cremated ashes is an integral part of religious burial ceremonies for several faith communities in Ontario. Any individuals or families who wish to scatter the cremated ashes of their loved ones on Crown land and Crown land covered by water in Ontario can do so.
Individuals and families are permitted to scatter cremated ashes on unoccupied Crown land, and those Crown lands covered by water. There is no need to obtain government consent to scatter cremated ashes on or in such areas, which include provincial parks and conservation reserves, and the Great Lakes.
