Go From Fisherman to Catcherman...with a Catchercraft Inflatable Raft or Pontoon Boat!
The Catchercraft Business Philosphy
Catchercraft Boats is committed to providing you the best available products to suit your fishing and boating needs. We don’t want to sell thousands of boats. We want to sell YOU a boat that you can enjoy for years, decades or even a lifetime. We promise to listen and respect you and we won’t try and sell you something you don’t want or need. We aren’t the biggest inflatable boat dealer on the market. Frankly, we don’t want to be. What we do want is to provide the best customer service in the inflatable boat business. When you contact us you will be communicating directly with one of the owners. We know fishing, we know inflatable boats, and we know frame building. And we promise to share our knowledge with you, our customers, to help you select the best boat for you.
Hi, my name is Ken Rambow and I have been welding for over 40 years and fishing for over the past 5 decades. I estimate to have built over a thousand pontoon boat and raft frames over the two decades for many guides and outfitters who needed custom work for their guiding operations that was not commercially available. I also built the "Steelheader" series frames for Skookum Products until recently when I decided to go into business for myself to ensure that the level of quality and customer service I have worked so hard to achieve over the years remained the same or even improved.
I don’t get to fish as much as I like but I do treat myself to a trip to Alaska to fish the Kenai River as an annual family fishing trip. I’m proud to see that pontoon frames I built 15 years ago for fishing lodges in are still in operation after many seasons of heavy duty commercial use. I won’t build and sell an inferior pontoon or raft frame.
Hi, my name is David Duvall and I’m a fishing nut as my family and friends will tell you. Since walking the creeks looking for salmon as a kid in Washington state, I knew early on I wanted to work in and around fish. From working in the productive waters of Alaska on a purse-seine boat to graduating from the University of Washington School of Fisheries, my life has centered around fish and fishing. I have worked as a fisheries biologist for 17 years, working on hatcheries and habitat issues in the upper Columbia River. In 2005 I moved to Ellensburg, Washington to attend graduate school at Central Washington University and to be close to a year-round trout fishing stream. While there I joined the staff at the Worley Bugger Fly Co., a full service fly shop and guide service specializing in trout fishing on the Yakima River and steelhead on other rivers. There I learned a few of the nuances of running a fishing-related business and transferred those ideals into our boat business.
Since my first solo float down the Methow River on a borrowed boat, I knew I needed a personal fishing craft, a pontoon boat of my own. Ken Rambow knows most everything about making all-welded fishing frames (and he's only been fishing all his life) and I knew a little about fish, fishing and the fishing industry….the perfect match to put our respective skills together and form company that will give you the very best in customer service and performance.
