  • Aluminum half-tower with rod holders
  • Panasonic stereo with two deck speakers


  • Aluminum outriggers
  • 12 volt deck power and electric reels for deep dropping
  • Live well

  • Overhead deck lighting
  • Onboard charging and inverter to run 120v accessoriesat sea
  • Add two more stereo speakers on the deck

Like any 30 year old boat, she’s a little rough around the edges but she’s solid where it matters. I wouldn’t hesitate to buzz over to Bimini or Grand Bahama right now! I’m planning to put some serious fish on the deck this summer and next, and maybe do a couple overnight trips with the family.
