Jimmie Jack's Love for Willie Boats is Personal

I first met Willie Illingworth when he moved into the campground on the Kenai River. We were neighbors, and became good friends over the years.We went fishing, shared meals, and helped each other with small projects at camp.I had an Alumaweld riverboat at the time, and Willie would constantly heckle me about my inferior boat.Willie was proud of his boats, and I later found out he had good reason.

Willie was an innovator in the drift boat industry. Prior to Willie Boats, he had quite the history perfecting the first aluminum drift boats. In 1971 Willie spent three months building the very first aluminum McKenzie-style drift boat. His goal was to build a boat that would be lighter and easier handling then the older style wooden drift boats. Willie was thrilled when he discovered the maneuverability was excellent.

Willie continued building aluminum drift boats and perfecting the design and soon was selling them under the name of Alumaweld Boats. Willie sold his share of Alumaweld and four years later began Willie Boats in 1981. Willie Boats is located in Central Point, Oregon. Today, the company builds approximately 300 drift boats and 100 power boats each year. Willie Boats sells factory direct only to ensure that each customer receives the best service available.

I bought my first drift boat from Willie in 2005, and have never looked at another make of riverboat since.They custom design our Willie boats for the Jimmie Jack way of fishing.Attention to detail is everything with the staff at Willie boats.Willie is no longer with us today, but his legacy lives on and the team at Willie Boats continues to improve in state of the art innovation and service.Currently, Willie Boats is one of our largest sponsors here at the Jimmie Jack Fishing Co.
