We love this brand because not only do they offer adorable items for you and your furry friend, but they also are female-founded, made in the USA, and donate some of their earnings to an amazing cause. We are so happy to have worked with Dog On The Bay and we really think you should check them out, you'll love them too!

Shannon Solt- A Dash of Solt 

Shannon Solt is right up our alley. First of all, she is a Midwest gal. (Hello from Minnesota!) Second, she loves all things coastal and preppy, but with a lake-twist. Again, just like us! She has had her wonderful blog since 2017 and is one of our go-to gals for all things lake-coastal.
Shannon's blog, A Dash of Solt, is a lifestyle blog where you can find classic style, blue and white home decor, learn about Coastal Ohio, and journey with Shannon as she navigates being a Stay at Home Mom. A Dash of Solt hopes to inspire others with a similar coastal aesthetic to embrace their love of timeless fashion and home decor, while also providing a glimpse into the Lake Erie lifestyle. (That was taken from her blog. See, she is a phenomenal blogger!) Make sure to not only check out her Brand Spotlight article about us, but the rest of her blog too. It's worth it.

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. 

Watch their 4th episode, The Power of Fun! here:

Woody Boater

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.
