Motor-Boatin is a 25’ Carolina Classic. What you need to know about the Carolina Classic is that they are built for one thing: the hardcore offshore fisherman, with a little something for mama down below. The boat is unlike most fishing vessels you will see in Alaskan waters. She is not mass produced and the hull is not cored or foam filled like you would see in most of today’s sportfishers. She is a hand built fiberglass vessel, not only out-weighing every other sportfishers in her class but many larger than her. Coupling that with her 24 degree deadrise, Carolina flair and jackshaft setup, there is NO other sportfisher in her class that will get you there with her ride quality and speed, meaning you won’t need a chiropractor after you’re trip (unless it’s caused by the monster fish you’re likely to catch). Repowered in 2007 with an ultramodern, digitally controlled common rail Volvo D4260 diesel, she’ll cruise at 25kts for nearly 400miles without running out of fuel, meaning we get more time fishing and less time running. She’ll run with the big boys, faster than they do, burning less fuel, means we’re willing to go where others won’t to fill the cooler and the camera. She’ll seat 4 comfortably, with room below in the cabin for clothing, food, and napping… as well she is equipped with marine head should nature call.
Motor-Boatin is outfitted with top of the line dual SIMRAD chartplotters, radar and sounders, as well as Furno sounder, dual VHF radios and autopilot. For trolling she is outfitted with Lamiglass rods, Okuma reels and 4, yes, 4 electric Big Jon downriggers as well as a rarity in Alaska… outriggers, allowing us to fish in ways that others can’t even dream of. 4 riggers means more gear in the water, for more time, for MORE fishies in the boat. Bottom fishing is handled with Okuma Cedros jigging rods and high speed jigging reels. And for those that want to see sharks or specifically target barn door halibut, we can bring out the big guns, Okuma Cedros bottom rods and Penn 2 speed reels. She sports a 32 gallon live bait well, allowing us to fish large live herring for halibut, kings and lingcod on those days when the fish are finicky. As well, equipped with all the required Coast Guard safety gear that we hope to never use.
