Before having kids, I never would have noticed it, but the bow on Glacier Bay's new 2640 Renegade is perfect for the family that fishes. Including the rail, there's 2'6" of protection around the sides. Toss the kids up forward and let 'em yank the lips off sea bass all day long. When you - and they - have had enough, drop them off and head for bluewater; the cockpit's ready to take on more serious prey. When you return to the dock, bring some friends aboard and enjoy a mellow evening on the bay. Yup, this boat does that well, too.
