Got a brand new tin boat last week. It's a 16 ft. Duranautic side console. It has a vinyl covered marine plywood floor, a plumbed live well, navigation lights, a bilge pump, and a color fish finder. The finder is not fancy (HB 197C) but it does what I need it to do. All the electric stuff is wired to the console. The power is a 30hp Evinrude E-Tec with electric start and power trim.
The most important option that I added was plastic bunk covers for the LR trailer. I use my boat in the salt so this will help protect against corrosion. I think these are a little better than the plastic pads as absolutely none of the aluminum comes into contact with the bunk or carpet.

Not sure if I am going to add a trolling motor. The towing weight is pretty high for my vehicle. The total weight (including the trailer) is 1060 lbs. Im pulling it with a 2010 Honda CRV. I have the AWD model and it is slated for 1500 lbs max. but after towing this boat a couple of times already, Im not sure if Im comfortable adding another 75 lbs. (battery and TM

Well anyhow......I have been on this site enough times to know people like pictures.....

Yeah This will get me out of the river and into the bay. This Evinrude sips gas so I can be out all day and it won't cost much. The little woman is way more comfortable in this boat so maybe I can get her to come out a little more. She fishes a little but she also likes to just take a leisurely cruise and take pictures of the wildlife.

The color of this boat is kind of strange. They call it a seafoam green but it doesn't look green to me. It is a Duranautic boat made by the Marathon Boat Group up in NY state. I like that it is made here in the US. Makes me feel good to know my neighbors built it.

BTW I really like this Evinrude E-Tec 30. I didn't realize how much I missed having a 2-stroke until I fired this thing up.

Nice rig! I’ve fished out of duranautic utility V’s forever. So I was wondering about how the console is mounted on that boat. Does in sit on top of, or just Behind the front bench seat?
