My son Brad & I picked a windy day to go out with Josh. The boat was sturdy and worked flawlessly. The fish were hungry and eating the bait. We had several manatee swimming around our boat several times. The dolphin were playing close by. We caught at least 4 different kinds of fish. Was an excellent day!
