Boating How-To

Bow Mount Sonar

Now, every boat has sonar, and a lot of flats and bass rigs have sonar at both ends. In fact, for those who fish with a trolling motor, a sonar system up front has become pretty much standard equipment—and some of the bass guys even have a couple of big-screens mounted on the front deck.

Accon Quick Release Hinges

Bimini tops are a great addition to a boat, but they’re not always easy to install and remove. Accon Marine’s Quick Release Hinges provide boat owners with a hassle-free way to connect and detach this accessory.


Flats Boats

The large forward casting deck has an anchor locker, two dry storage compartments and a round live baitwell. The flat area to port accepts a trolling motor and it’s pre-wired. The forward mounted fuel tank helps to offset the weight of the outboard motor and gives the hull a shallower draft.

Bay Boats

Pathfinder 2600 TRS

Versatility best describes the Pathfinder 2600 TRS that gives an angler the ability to fish the bays and light offshore in the same outing. The shoal draft will give you access to many of the flats reserved for much smaller boats. The bays and just inside the inlet would rarely be rough enough to be uncomfortable.

Center Consoles

Many of the luxurious features of a larger center console in a smaller package. Perfect for a limited size tow vehicle.

The double step on the hull bottom enhances the boats performance and the bow mounted thruster makes docking a breeze.

EdgeWater 368CC

To refer to this boat as a center console is a bit of a stretch, but you can indeed fish 360 degrees around the helm. The console cabin sets it apart from most other boats in this class. Luxurious overnight accommodations, including a stand-up head, would allow a couple to take this boat on an extended outing without the need of a full service marina.
