In 2013 We purchased a new boat (photo above). It's a HUGE 25.5 foot Alumaweld and it COMFORTABLY seats 6. Some of the current photos on our website show our older boat in the background. Our new boat is longer and more spacious. It makes catching a fish easier and more fun. It makes the time spent in-between catching fish a lot more relaxing and comfortable.
