aofisher Sweet rig! How do those flat/inshore boats handle the waves? I am seriously considering an inshore rig when I pull the trigger on my next boat. I plan to migrate south at some point within the next 12 years, so it probably makes sense to buy a boat that I could use in the salty stuff later down the road. I hate carpet in a boat too. This looks pretty appealing to me:

cochise Z hit it on the head. Easy and efficient plus great fish-ability. I cannot imagine ever having carpet again.

cochise This is a 1996 Cobia 174. Rebuilt the inside and floors with a new fuel tank, hoses and wiring.

Red, the T-Top came with the boat and I do not like it. It is history soon, building my own top as my neighbor just got a bender (yay for me).

Bob, I will be coming back, but only as a snowbird! I will always have a place down here. Mamma thinks we are to far away from family. Really?

I am trying to think of names for the craft, she was nameless when I got her so I am thinking...

International Harvester!

macman Sorry, I just had to poke the bear. Backups for the backup make sense to me.

Congrats on the new boat cochise!

A good guide needs two, of everything. Equipment, especially boats and marine equipment, will always fail at some point, especially when being used 150-ish days a year in conditions from -10 to 90+ degrees. When someone books a trip with me, and there's any mechanical issue, I have a fully-equipped second boat at the ready. Just happened to need to use it several times this past season, and put a couple of 40+ pounders in it too! Nobody ever lost a day of fishing because I have a back-up for everything. Truck, boat, sonars, trolling motors (I have 3!), rods, reels, etc etc. Its a good guide's responsibility.
