My HPDI’s finally gave out. Just repowered with 200 Suzuki’s. Currently doing the break in. Outboard Specialties In Pompano gave me the best price and awesome service. Drove up from Miami

Nice pic - how often is your water that clear in Orange beach?

Depends on rainfall. It's been clear for a while.

The 23T is one of my all time favorite boats! We spend plenty of time in OBA at Robinson Island in the summer. I’ll have to drop by and say hello if I see the boat around.

Fished Cobia season without upper controls.Finally back on the water with the controls. Took her out today for a hour boat ride to make sure everything was good. Everything checked out and ready for billfish season here in NC.

My boat is just what I needed to start, but I dream of owning a Contender and why I stalk this thread. I'm a little scared of the deeper draft though coming and going from our dock. I'd love to upgrade to a 24S or 25T but have to decide if I should upgrade more gradually through a Gamefish 25 first. Hopefully I'll see you around sometime and can pick your brain about your track in and out and maybe learn something about fishing too. I can idle through at low tide now, but it's tight. Maybe you have a better track, or do you plan your trip around the tide? I saw the Freeman come in at pretty close to low tide but I expect he doesn't draft much more than I do if he's loaded light.

Default 35st


Our 35st is only a few days out and we are super excited. She has to be the prettiest boat we have ever built, very happy how she came out.
