Mahogany and Chrome
Mahogany & Chrome® is a show dedicated to celebrating classic, wooden power boats and the fascinating characters who hunt them down, restore them, and use them to pursue a classic boating lifestyle centered on fun, friendship, and experiencing the most beautiful shorelines in North America.
We met Mahogany & Chrome® at the Gull Lake Classic last August where they were shooting footage for their 4th episode. The Mahogany & Chrome® team, which consists of Forrest Bryant, David Vickers, and Ty Harcott, took interest in Rudder USA as they believed our brand fit in well with theirs. They interviewed us as we set up our booth and had our very first show! The interview was a blast and it was great chatting and getting to know the Mahogany & Chrome® team. It was so fun meeting our customers in person and finally emerging ourselves in the boating community after being prevented from doing so due to COVID-19.
Mahogany & Chrome® is a wonderful production that truly captures all elements of classic wood boating, and we think they deserve a subscribe on their Youtube Channel. Their 4th episode dropped last week and it turned out great! The episode highlights us, our home, beautiful boats, and some of the people who are near and dear to us at Rudder USA.

Woody Boater is an online platform that's all about wood boats and the amazing community that comes with them. On their website they describe themselves as, "a state of mind, a place to enjoy woody boating when you are not out on your boat, or if you just want to enjoy the world that surrounds these fun classic water crafts."
Right when we launched in August 2020, Woody Boater wrote a wonderful article about our brand and the inspiration behind it. The article drove their readers to our website and we are proud to say that some of our most loyal customers (that are still around today!) came from that single article.

Midwest Shore Society
The Brass Bell is Chris Craft's quarterly magazine that is available to all of their Antique Boat Club members. We had the pleasure of being featured in their second issue in 2021, but unfortunately we are unable to share that feature with the public. The magazine is exclusive to its members, but, if you happen to be one of those members, you can find us in that issue! We're honored to have been featured and shared with such a wonderful boating community.

We are a proud sponsor of the Land-O-Lakes Classic Boat Club. This club brings likeminded people together through a shared love for boating, just like what we strive to do at Rudder USA. This is the Minnesota + Dakotas Chapter of ACBS, The Antique Classic Boat Society, and this club's members are nothing short of passionate and just fun to be around.
We sell our gear at both of their shows in late August and early September, and also offer Land-O-Lakes Classic Boat Club T-Shirts and Long Sleeve T-Shirts, which you can find here.
