The Rybovich story... on PBS!

Thanks to the Palm Beach Film Commission, a 2-part Rybovich documentary has been created for the celebrated Burt Wolf show, Travels and Traditions!

Burt and his lovely family traveled all the way from their home in Switzerland to spend days filming and fishing aboard the 51 year old Rybo Hull #66. Burt did a fabulous job capturing the colorful Rybovich story in his signature playful style -- and he is every bit as delightful in person as he is on TV!

The documentary will premiere on PBS in a few weeks but I was able to get you a sneak peek! Part #1 is where I share the Rybovich family story. And Part #2 focuses on Michael and his boatyard.

It's an honor and a thrill to have the Rybovich story featured on PBS so many, many thanks to the extraordinary people at the Palm Beach Film Commission (especially film commissioners Chuck Elderd and Michelle Hillary) for making the magic happen.

Enjoy the Burt Wolf show & wishing you an awesome 2019!

Rybovich aficionado

Joe Chioffe, owner of Rybovich Hull #25

"Fabulous!! A wonderful history of the sports fishing world told through the eyes of the family, the owners, the captains and the boats that revolutionized the sport. Thank you so much for all your hard work, research and love and care that you have put in to this project."
Vintage Rybovich owner

"Pat, at last we have the Rybovich book. It is jaw droppingly fantastic, stunning and majestic. This book will indeed go down in history, and Pat, it must be worth every ounce of the blood, sweat and tears you have put into it."
Vintage Rybovich owner, Hull #59

"The BOOK is splendid...exquisite. Your Dad and Uncles must be smiling at the comprehensive, nearly reverent tribute you have given them, allowing their creations and craftsmanship to be shared with many not sufficiently fortunate to own an original."
