Captain's ReportThe hallmark of EdgeWater boats is their exceedingly rugged construction using two techniques—Permagrid and RAMCAP. Both these techniques add to EdgeWater’s strength and stiffness.EdgeWater’s 185 Dual Console is a trailerable boat that offers the abilities of a fishboat with the looks and accommodations of a sportboat. Her layout offers plenty of room for fishing and other water activities. A small platform or retractable step on the port side makes the boat useable as a swim platform or a ski boat. The 185 Dual Console features a 100-percent handlaid fiberglass hull, backed by an all-fiberglass foam-filled PermaGrid stringer system. Her running bottom is tough and can cut through chop, with her sharp forward entry and 18-degree deadrise aft. Her transom uses 28-pound density foam core sandwiched by vacuum bagged fiberglass.Our test boat recorded a top speed of 41.7 mph and a best cruise 27.9 mph at 4000 rpm with a single Yamaha 130 V-4 engine. With her standard 56-gallon fuel tank she can run almost 200 miles between fill ups. The maximum rated power for this model is 150-hp, and we think most owners will opt for that size engine. After all, speed is half the fun.For more information call (904)427-9783 or visit www.ewboats.com.
