Irv Bruyntjens, CA - Lake Mission Viejo

I have used this boat approx 3 times per week since it was delivered last November. It has performed above expectations and I am extremely happy with my purchase. It is very stable, allows higher/greater visibility, comfortable and maneuver's very easily. FYI the fish in the photo are Rainbow Trout caught from my boat at Lake Mission Viejo in Southern California. The stringer came in at 18 lb's. (1- 8#, 1-6# & 2 @ 2#'s each. (The 8# was my lake record).

Thank You
