This interesting French design, imported to the United States by Ersco Boats from Sartouville, France, appeared early in the era of molded fiberglass. Among the many unusual ideas incorporated in the design is (A) a wraparound "windshield" at the forward end of the cabin, and (B) the ventilating system, which takes in air through small holes at the bow into a watertight space built into the forepeak, as shown in the profile view. There the incoming air, along with whatever spray or solid water splashes in, are separated. The air flows aft through a duct into the cabin, and the water drains by gravity back to the sea through a hole at the bottom of the compartment. Best features: The motor well, built into the aft end of the cockpit directly ahead of the outboard rudder, helps make steering under power more responsive. The heavy keel, relatively narrow beam and long waterline, and high-aspect sailplan all add up to a comfortable sea boat (if there can be such a thing in only 21 feet of length). The unusually long quarter berths are also admirable. Worst features: The forward berths are too short and narrow at the foot for two adults.

How To Have A Perfect Boating Experience

How To Have A Perfect Boating Experience

Lets start by identifying what exactly certain boats are. Sometimes the terminology can get lost on beginners, so well look at some of the most common boats and what theyre called. These boats are exactly what the name implies. They are meant to be used for fishing. Most fishing boats are powered by outboard motors, and many also have a trolling motor mounted on the bow. Bass boats can be made of aluminium or fibreglass.
