We don't know much about this design, which was produced by the Kells Corp. of Tiverton, RI during the 1970s. By 1980 the company seems to have dropped out of sight. Unfortunately we don't have an accommodations plan to show you. Best features: Like her comps, the Kells 22 should be easy to pull in and out at a ramp. She has good headroom compared to her comps, though it's sitting, not standing. And her specs indicate that she has more room below than her comps. Worst features: Due to her relatively high freeboard, we see her as not very graceful compared to her comps. Her 525-pound cast iron swing keel will have the same problems shared by other steel or iron swing-keelers: steady maintenance to keep rust at bay and the keel winch and cable operable, and danger of splitting the hull at the forward end of the trunk if the pendant parts and the keel crashes down uncontrolled.

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.
