ABOUT THIS SERIES
This boat is LEGIT. If I can go out of character and stop writing odd explanations of our boats… The Coastal is one of my most favorite boats of all time. Not my favorite boat we build, but my favorite boat of any I’ve ever ran. Favorite to fish from, to build… everything. Sure, I love running bigger and insanely impressive boats but I also enjoy the simplicity and versatility in this size range for the diversity of fisheries here in the northwest. From Albacore offshore to Walleye and Burbot in the winter… This boat can do it all and be parked in the driveway at the end of the day.
There are a number of things I want you to pay VERY close attention to. As an angler that spends a lot of time in Alaska, on the Washington Coast, in the Puget Sound as well as some of the Northwests largest lakes, the details are what make this boat amazing.
This is our Precision Vee Hull, the difference in this hull is night and day over more classic hull designs. The forward Vee drops deeper than most boats allowing it to have a much greater cut while keeping it from being broachy in big water. Too much bow entry and a boat can be hairy to run in big following sea’s, too little and you may want to get on the kidney transplant list now. This is right on the money and every hull from the Pro Fish on up, has this Precision Vee Hull.
Self-Bailing. Nuff Said. You will be hard pressed to find a manufacture that builds this style of boat with that feature and if they offer it as an option it will cost thousands of dollars. As a builder it adds a lot of cost and time, so for the sake of production most will not do it.
Bottom and structure is another item. We’re running a ¼” thick H116 5086 hull bottom. The durability of this over 3/16” (.190”) hull bottoms is night and day. Combine that with the structure we weld into these hulls, this boat is a tank.
