Boat Q&A Info
The 2011 23 Tournament Cape Horn is one of the largest 23ft. boats you will ever ride on. It’s overall length is 26″8″ with a 9″1″ beam which gives a nice smooth ride. Like all Cape Horns, the 23T is unsinkable and built to the highest structural standards. In the bow area, it has a 7″, 700 quart fish box that will hold the day’s catch. The center console has a porta-potty ( marine bathroom) for those all day trips. The Fin-Nagle is one of the fastest boats in the area and is powered by twin 250hp Yamaha 4 stroke outboards which get us to the fishing grounds quick and more fishing time for you. We have state of the art electronics by Simrad which includes radar, gps, chart plotter, side scan and down looking sonar. We also have twin VHF radios. We also carry extra safety equipment that includes an EPIRB ( Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon) and a six-man life raft.
We use only the best tackle by Penn reels, All Star rods, Berkley tackle, TGT Tackle, Rapala, American fishing Wire and Fitec castnets. We have room to carry over 20 rods and you are welcome to bring one of your favorites. I do allow fly rods, but you will have to bring your own gear. You are welcome to bring a small cooler, but leave your large one at the dock for you catch. We do have an onboard cooler that you are welcome to use. We ask that you try and wear light colored sole shoes.
COME ENJOY A GREAT DAY ON THE WATER!
