The FISHERMAN is a practical, rugged, and easily maintained boat for the fisherman and water sports enthusiast. A generous vee in the bottom provides a soft ride, while the flare in the sides runs clear to the transom for a dry ride and large cockpit area. The forefoot and skeg assures excellent directional control for trolling and dockside handling in a breeze.

The construction of the FISHERMAN is well within the realm of the first-time builder, and the cost to build fits into a tight budget. For a good all-around utility craft with style, the FISHERMAN is hard to beat.
