Captain Arnie Clay is not your typical fair weather boater. For the past 15 years, Arnie’s outfit, Thornehead Guide & Travel, Inc., has offered seaduck hunting trips during the months of November through January . His clients are waterfowlers from all over the United States who come to enjoy world class duck hunting in Casco Bay.
Many people can not even imagine getting into a boat in January, but folks like Arnie live for those frigid winter days when the sky is crystal-blue, and the winds are light. Those are the days that he’s out in the bay with his new Polar kraft 2010 Center Console designed specifically for men like him. Arnie has modified his boat so that it is perfectly suited for his guide business. He has added a Lowrance Sonar/ GPS, a VHF radio, dual batteries, a custom leaning post, kayak accessory brackets for the layout boats, and plenty of safety gear, decoys, and firearms. Arnie calls it a “seaduck hunting machine.”

The 2010 CC is just one of five new Outlander models offered including a 2010 Side Console, a 2010 Twin Console with full canvas, a 2010 Tiller model, and a 163 Twin Console with full canvas. These new offerings compliment the 186 SC and 179 TC that have been available for the past few years.
The Outlander series was developed in cooperation between Hamlin’s Marine, L.L.Bean, and Polar kraft specifically for the harsh waterways and weather conditions of Maine. Hamlin’s Marine was present at the factory during the engineering of the new Outlander models (check out Youtube for videos of the 2010 design), and we can say with certainty that these boats are the most practical and rugged aluminum boats that have ever touched the water in Maine. Whether you are hunting, fishing, or just want a safe way to explore Maine, come to Hamlin’s and check out the new Outlander series.
