“Swamp People” Discuss the Best Boats on the Water Carolina Skiff

By Amy Lignor

“Made for play, work—whatever you want to do, this baby is for you!” Those were gator hunter and TV personality R.J. Molinere’s words when it came to discussing the ‘best of the best’ on the water today: Carolina Skiff.

For people who may be unaware of these hard working men, the History Channel is right where you can stop by and meet RJ / Jay Paul. “Swamp People” is an American TV series that took off a few years back, opening the door to viewers so they can witness the daily activities of Louisiana natives, as they live in the swamps of the Atchafalaya River Basin and hunt gators for a living.


The King of the Swamp, Troy Landry, faces off with far more than just gators on the show – friends and family alike actually get some of his steam as he works hard to preserve that Cajun way of life. The show even sports a gator-dog named Tyler; while R.J. Molinere and his son, Jay Paul, make bold moves to gain dominance over those gator-filled swamps.

But the one thing RJ / Jay Paul and all “Swamp People” can agree upon is the fact that Carolina Skiff has the perfect equipment when it comes to filling their list of needs.

While sitting down on bayou, R.J. and Jay Paul focused on letting the world know the incredible features Carolina Skiff boats provide, especially when it comes to being the most solid, weight-bearing vessels imaginable.


R.J. stated that holding a lot of weight is no problem for the Carolina Skiff. Whether it be oysters, crab cages, fish, or those legendary Gators, Carolina Skiff built their equipment to make sure if R.J and his son want to load up to 150 gators – big ones, mind you – they have no fear of their boat being weighed down.

“I can get to places other boats just can’t get me to in this,” R.J. remarked. “I can be in shallow, shallow water and I can still do my work just fine.”

Great for him…bad luck for those gators.

“Living on the swamp, you got to have the right equipment, and this is the most versatile boat possible.”

But let’s not forget the aspect of fun, here. Jay Paul chimed in to let the world know you can go out on the water and have a day of fun, as well, and not have to worry about overloading the boat with guests. “It’s an all-round boat.” From doubling up on your load while at work to setting up a barbecue on it when at play, “You can design this boat to work for you!”


The “Swamp People” may be quirky, and a bit unorthodox at times, but they definitely know the type of craft needed to excel at their job, and Carolina Skiff’s DLX-EW (Extra-Wide) Series provides a high payload capacity and an extra wide beam. We’re talking the pick-up truck of boats. Drawing very little water while remaining stable in almost any circumstance, you don’t have to be on a TV show to carry more weight further and faster using less horsepower. That’s why the DLX-EW outshines other work boats: fuel efficiency, carrying more weight with less horsepower. Whether it be work time or play time, the DLX Extra-Wide Series is the best.

Every boating enthusiast knows that a Carolina Skiff is the most durable, versatile, stable and economical boat on the planet, and this company has maintained that stellar reputation for over 30 years. From fit to finish, a Carolina Skiff delivers the most features and the best functionality available on the market today, giving you the best value in both performance and comfort. With more than 60 models to choose from that meet your own personal, recreational or commercial needs, Carolina Skiff has the pleasure boat, fishing boat, runabout, or commercial/work boat that you can’t be without.

So take it from RJ / Jay Paul of the “Swamp People” who do the job and do it well: “There’s nothing more solid than a Carolina Skiff!”
