This weekend we took the Tideline out for a hard shake down run out of Pascagoula. Forecast was calling for 2-4s with 10-15 mph winds, but real wave heights validated by NOAA were solid 3-4s. We ran through Horn island pass and turned south clipping along in comfort. The boat ate the seas up as we sat in the captains chairs and braved for the typically jarring of a mono hull. The Tideline never beat or jarred as we dialed in the throttles and tabs and heading on.

Pulled Up to the first wreck and locked in the seas station! Surprisingly even in the rough conditions, the boat held its position and the stability of the Cat made the rough conditions fishable. After a few hours of releasing ARS, lane snapper, and a couple triggers, we came on back home at 30 mph running 1.2 mph. The seas had chopped up and were solid 4’ seas.

Tideline has had hit a homerun with their 365 and I encourage everyone to jump on one for a test ride! We are blown away at the comfort and fish ability of this machine and look forward to running the boat to OBA for the Wharf Boat Show!

Oh, and she got a booty!

We really appreciate the time to write it up for the crowd here. It was fun talking to you guys right after the trip and hearing the excitement. I like how a shakedown cruise in rough water turned into a fishing trip. That is the point of the boat, to make more marginable days fishable.

Looking foward to seeing you guys at the Wharf Show later this month.

Those numbers look really good. The twin boats really like to cruise in that mid 30's to 40 mph range. Its only the owners that want to cruise 50+ mph that are needing to go quads. We like having that flexibility.

Great to see Graham up top and enjoying the upper station, looks like you caught a better weather day this time.

Hey Regulator, have you had a chance to put the Seastation capabilities of the Optimus 360 through it's paces yet? On another thread, a poster who just bought a World Cat 280 said the Seastation capabilities weren't the best. Although, he's very early in with his new boat and it sounds like the conditions were a bit rough. Interested if you think the Seastation will be practical for wreck fishing in 80' or more depth?

I’m coming to see it tomorrow. Looking forward to it. Imagine you’ll be the guy with the big smile, light wallet, with the deck brush at the ready!

We have tested the seastation a few times, and found the results to be very impressive. We noticed wave height does not have as much effect on the hold position as current does. We were able to hold position over a wreck in a 3-4' sea, but the unit struggled with a 1-2' sea with 3 knot current. Once the boat begins to track out of postion, the motors cannot keep up with the current and the unit will default. We have not played much with the heading lock and drift function yet. For holding position in the marina, or in the river, or waiting to load up the boat on the trailer, the seastation is AWESOME! Overall we are very pleased and happy with the system!

Couple shots from this past weekend. Weather conditions got a little sporty, but the Tideline handled these seas with ease. Round trip was 400+ miles and burned 296 gallons.

Great fuel burn numbers, as I am sure you guys were pretty loaded down spending two nights out there.

I get pictures from our owners on their fishing trips and I always wish I was out there with them. Maybe not so much this time,

Few pics from this past weekend on the Tideline! Had a great group with 10 guys on board and had plenty of room for everyone! We left out of Pascagoula and made bait. Started fishing by 10am and had our snapper limit by 12:30pm. We then headed to try and find some extras.

Loving the boat and the capabilities it’s given us. Seas were a true 2’ spaced at 3-4 second chop. Easily cruised 30-35 mph and was solid on the drift. What would have been a bumpy day in our old boat was made comfortable in the new Tideline.

Pics to make it happen!
