Hinge and Hide It

Keeping your rig at home in the garage has multiple advantages. First, it is out of thieves’ sights. Second, indoor protection against UV light, heat and outdoors elements keeps your boat new-looking. And lastly, your boat will always be prepared because you can leave tackle and electronics in place.

Engel Day Tripper

Hauling a load of cold drinks and lunch down the dock or along the beach? The new Engel Soft Sided Day Tripper Cooler has several carrying options—including tote handles, grab handle on the back, and perhaps best of all, comfortable, durable, vented backpack straps.

Carolina Skiff 19 DLX

One big advantage of a flat bottom skiff hull is the ability to run in very shallow water, it’s mainly limited by the amount of water required for the outboard’s lower unit.

Dorado 23

The Dorado 23 is a boat that can fish offshore in the morning and the backcountry in the afternoon. It is 23 feet long and can easily accommodate 4 anglers with all of their gear. The use of a Porta Bracket on the transom allows you to have the outboard mounted behind the transom so you can use every square foot of the cockpit.

Center Consoles

Southport 29FE

If fishing is something you like to do but extreme luxury is something you demand you can have a boat with the same amenities such as bow and stern seating, a head in the center console, including plush seats behind the helm but all at a higher level of fit and finish.

Silver Wave 250 Island SB

The SilverWave 250 Island SB Tri Toon with a big V6 outboard will give you astonishing performance. With this much horsepower and a tow bit at the stern the boat can pull a multi-person tube, wake board or slalom water skier with ease.
