Ten degree deadrises at the transom for the guides in the Crystal River/Homosassa area. Thus our name, "PRO-LINE". The "PRO" portion of it went to the fishing guides. It was a one at a time boat built for the professional guides.
There's a custom builder a little south of us, Gause? I probobly spelled his name wrong. He began by buying old PRO-LINE and AQUASPORT hulls, gutting them, and rebuiding the hulls as Tarpon boats and the like. Doe's a damn good job of it too. He's grown a lot bigger now, but still doe's an excellant job and knows how to do it correctly.
Yeah, there's a lot to be said for the old hulls. We swapped a local guide his/our original 24', hull number one, still in use a few years ago. We swapped him a new boat for his forty year old boat. He was still using it too. Swapped him boat and motor for boat and motor.
