Approx. trailering wgt.: 3,300 lbs.

This is a character boat with concomitant grace, and with a good measure of performance and practicality, too. What she lacks in headroom, she makes up in charm. In England, she has cult-boat status. Best features: The outboard well, placed inside the cockpit, gives easy access to engine controls and helps maintain vessel's good looks. Extensive use of varnished wood below lends a touch of elegance. Short bilge runners allow the boat to take the ground nearly upright. Foam buoyancy for safety is built in under cockpit seats and under foredeck. Handy self-draining bow well in the fore-deck gives secure stowage for ground tackle. Ramp launching is easier than comps due to shallow draft. Sturdy tabernacle is judged easier to use than a mere hinge on deck when raising and lowering mast. Worst features: New and resale prices are high, and headroom is low, compared to comps. Cockpit footwell is non-self-bailing. Substantial use of varnished wood looks great, but means more than ordinary maintenance is needed.

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.
