We run a 2005 23.5 foot Falcon Striper Deluxe. The Falcon boat was designed for being used as a guide boat and was built in Sherman Texas. These boats have a deep V hull designed for open water. My boat is a very stable fishing platform. Powered by a quiet 250 HP Suzuki 4 Stroke Engine that is very well maintained. Equipped with a I-pilot Trolling motor, Hummingbird Electronics with GPS, side scan, down imaging (if you would like to brush up on your graph reading) and fish finding skills. It is very Clean. If you are new to fishing I am sorry for the Jargon. What I am saying is this boat is made for this type of fishing and has the latest fishing equipment on it. It is clean , and well taken care of.
