“We're so grateful to our partners and the talented craftsmen at Hell's Bay Boatworks for generously donating this special, one-of-a-kind skiff,” CFCW program director Capt. Chris Wittman told Trade Only Today. “Not only will this help raise money to advance our mission, but we’ll be able to take policymakers on the water to experience impacted estuaries, such as the Everglades and Florida Bay, to gain a deeper understanding of what we’re fighting to protect.”
