Did Jay take his dad with him? I'm sure they will have a blast. He can catch fish anywhere.

Ken, there is a fight club thread up in the boat shows and photos subforum. You might think about moving that question up there. Down here in the Carolinas subforum "them theres fightin words"

Yeah I checked and see its a custom built boat, I said " nice lines " Ya got to admit its has similar lines to an Ocean Yatch like this one above. You could've just as easy said its a custom boat, but if you want actual " Fighting words " I can insult you some other way. It is a New Year , So , thats as nice as I can respond . Hope they fare well in Southern waters.

Ok you transplanted yankee in progress, apparently you didn't read or understand the rules of etiquette down here. Since you're new I'll help you out with the boat ID thing, it is blaphemy to even hint any boat built north of the Mason Dixon Line even remotely resembles a Carolina Custom (no matter how pretty or ugly it might be). The only similarities are they float, period.

If you'd like more help with your re-education jump up into the fight club thread. I'm sure there will be plenty of us who will be glad to teach you the finer points of boat identification.

Happy New Years!

I remember when Jay and his dad bought that boat. I think it was called three brothers or something like that.

I'm pretty sure it's a Sheldon Midgett hull.

Yeah No, I deleted what I had written as I was not proud of it, Wanted to take the High Road as they say. I've never owned a boat larger then a 28' , And Yes I'm sure all of you experts have far superior boat identification skills. Congratulations Y'all

I couldn’t tell you which custom boat was built by whom, but I absolutely love to walk the docks at Pirates Cove or Oregon inlet sport fishing center and admire the craftsmanship.

Ken, Google is your friend.

Runaway is a 46′ Carolina boat built by Sheldon Midgett in Wanchese, NC. She has a large comfortable cabin with A/C and heat. The boat is also equipped with top notch electronics such as NAV- NET navigation system, furuno depth finders, radar and temperature gauges. She offers the finest in fishing gear such as Penn and Shimano rod and reels. USCG safety equipment. She has a large cockpit that will accommodate 6 fisherman very comfortable with a fighting chair and 2 helm chairs.

Btw, Bill sometimes forgets that he is a dingbatter. LOL

I have never forgot! In fact I was going to share that I r one too.

I was just "bustin the bawls" of our new transplant and I thought he'd get it was all in fun, I used emojis and all. Maybe he was just having a bad day and will forgive my attempt at humor.

The fact you think that boat looks anything remotely like an Ocean Yacht of any vintage speaks volumes.....go find yourself a good Sea Hunt or Sea Pro thread to dick up.

Fished on the Runaway as a 50th birthday gift from my wife, was us two plus 4 friends. Had a blast and all 6 of us went home with a nice cooler of meat each. Jay was fantastic. Mate at the time was a guy named "Amp" who was also great.
