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. The boat is a very stable fishing platform. Powered by a quiet 300 HP 4 Yahama Four Stroke Engine that is very well maintained. Equipped with a Riptide I-pilot Trolling motor, Hummingbird Solix 10 with GPS, side scan, down imaging (if you would like to brush up on your graph reading) and fish finding skills. 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.
