Captain's ReportPlenty of input from a lot of fishermen went into this boat. Take the T-top for instance, a must have for any serious offshore runner, it’s installed with custom-built, throughbolted stainless steel struts. This is one top that won’t vibrate or wave in the breeze when the going gets rough. There’s plenty of room for all, too. Three will sit comfortably on a vinyl-covered bench forward of the console, the skipper and mate each have their own pedestal seat and there’s an aft leaning post, also. The cockpit deck plays host to a 650-gallon insulated fish box that can also snap in eight rods. Flanking lockers on each side can hold more game or serve as stowage areas. There’s three more fish boxes in the transom as well as a standard 50-gallon livewell. Recognizing that your time offshore isn’t all fishing, enjoy the fully enclosed head inside that center console. You also jump into that head to effortlessly reach all the wiring for your flush-mounted electronics—say goodbye to those $75/hour technicians. Wide 21” fully nonslip-treated side decks allow easy getting around the boat, and an all-fiberglass, fully-integrated stringer system guarantees that it will all hang together well into the next millennium.
