Release 196 RX

An offshore capable boat with everything you need to fish beyond the jetties without the upkeep of added features. The bow has a recessed casting deck that gives you enough height to throw a cast net but still be standing low enough for good stability. Below the deck is dry storage, perfect for your safety gear. The side entry, step-down center console has plenty of room for a potty and additional storage. A simple leaner seat stores a cooler below and horizontal rod holders, port and starboard, keep your fishing rods protected but close at hand. Aft is a pair of jump seats that utilize removable cushions on top of the extended transom bulkhead. Their fixed position is higher, than others that fold, which make them a very comfortable height. Live bait fishermen will find a plumbed well under the port stern seat.
