:welcometo the forum from Ne. Very nice looking rig. What is the pole on the front by the steps. Is that to hold onto while getting on the front of the boat? EB

I really looked hard at a lot of boats and all of the aluminum boats looked "cheaply" made...this is the only one i really liked, since the front seat has a built in bait bucket...its called a "Crappie Throne"..:biggrin.(its an option)....this boat really has a smooth ride and handles waves a lot better than a flat type bottom boat,
you really can't see the rear of the boat clearly,however, i'll take some more foto's if you like, its a "stepped pad boat", like a bass boat... the rod locker will handle 7' rods OK, and the live well top is a cuttin board with built in ruler....the "tempress" seat are fantastic and this is a "FISHING" boat, not just a crappie rig....wanna ride?
