The foredeck is prerigged for the trolling motor of your choice. An outboard trim switch adds more control from the bow. Also forward is ample tackle storage, with dedicated slots for Plano utility boxes. The hatches are designed to keep water out, so gear remains dry. At the step to the bow deck is a large center hatch that reveals rod storage, with four pairs of rod-butt and rod-tip holders to nestle tackle safely. A larger opening at the center of the compartment reaches far forward to the stem, allowing for longer rods.
