Stomping Grounds, a documentary-style video series on YouTube from Boat Trader, America's largest boating marketplace, explores the nation's waterways and beloved boating cities. The aim of the series is to uncover unique cultures, backgrounds, and customs, as well as the boating stories that go with them. Boat Trader unveiled the official trailer and initiated the campaign on social media.
The inaugural episode features a tight-knit, family-oriented group of aluminium boat owners who reflect on the merits of turning to their beloved waterways as a means of staying socially connected during these pandemic times. From fishing and surfing to sun bathing and building driftwood masterpieces, this episode chronicles the gang’s passion for the water and demonstrates why light-weight, easy-to-handle, shallow water fishing boats are their vessels of choice.
TRACKER® is highlighted as a manufacturer of outstanding aluminium fishing boats, with a 2021 SUPER GUIDE™ V-16 SC fishing boat featured throughout the episode. The series director & host Ryan McVinney says, “Coming out of a winter season like no other, the show debuts at a time when restless boaters are clamouring to return to their favourite stomping grounds. Each story takes a ‘local’s’ approach to exploring a variety of boats and boating styles in distinct boating towns – from quiet nooks and isolated areas to popular destinations and historic locales. The series weaves together local legends and boating tales, showcasing not only why certain craft are ideal for specific waters, but also demonstrating their real-world capabilities.”
With a series float plan underway to explore a mix of locally-prized places in depth, viewers can look forward to learning about a wide variety of boaters across America. Up ahead, there is a trip to the Florida Keys to meet a banker turned backcountry fishing guide, a visit to North Carolina to follow a family’s journey from Hollywood to the Outer Banks, and exciting adventures in Texas, Oklahoma, Maine, Alaska and other treasured homeports.
