Mike is the best. I fish out of Niantic but when I have guests who haven’t fished I always try to book him. Consistently finds lots of big fish. He’s a true professional.

Great info. I’ll have to ask about the maintenance fee. If those are $200 a month or more then, ya, not a good deal.

I had a 24í Eastern built in 2014, same hull I believe, and it was junk. Kept it 3 months and sold it. Handsome, looked great tied to a dock, but all in all it was not very well made.

We had one for a while. Canít really say anything negative about it. Very sturdy, a little slow but worth the trade off. I liked the layout. Good boat!
