Itís a bit of a hassle when it happens but hasnít really been much of an issue for me. Iíve probably been stopped 3-4 times in the last 25 years, and use my boat about once per week. Honestly, with...

I donít know why this shit keeps coming up. Not everyone wants a cat. A lot of people donít like how they ride - me included. They are vastly more expensive than other boats the same length. Reading...

Looked at it. Nice boat. Big compared to a lot of 28íers. No frills but solid. I have a 25 and love the simplicity of the deck layout. Storage is a bit limited even with the V-seating, and almost...

There really isn't anything you can do. I have had active dogs my whole life. If they run through a spot repeatedly, its you are going to have a dirt patch.

I pretty much just use my bait pen for pinfish. They last forever in that thing. Other types of bait don't do so well.

Make sure you clarify with your insurance company before you spend 100k+ based on an assumption.

If you have any intention on going to the Bahamas, just get the 27 and be done with it. You arenít going to find anyone who underwrite a Bahamas policy on the 25.

Jarrett Bay is arguably the premier builder of custom fishing boats, and would easily make just about anyone's top 5 list. Just look at Grander - that thing is a work of art. They should be able to...
