The 230 HS is great for recreation and fishing. It accommodates up to 6 people, comfortably, with seats for all. The T-top will keep you shaded and swim platform will keep you wet should you decide to take a dip. This boat would be available for use in the Hudson River and would be delivered to the launch in Catskill, NY (Dutchman's Landing) or Athens, NY. Other launches are available in Kingston or Albany and can be accommodated. We'll launch it for you, go over the boat w/you and pull it out when your done.
Hudson River is awesome; we have the striped bass run in late March-early June, great historic sites, islands to swim/ camp, do leaf peeping in the fall or just take a cruise.
Gas is the responsibility of lessee, we will supply and you can reimburse us; which is much cheaper than gas at a marina. Engine is fuel efficient and most trips use 10-20 gallons, at most; boat does have a 109 gallon tank for extended/offshore cruising.
A vid, we shot a few years ago is on Youtube; it is entitled: Striped Bass Fishing the Hudson River, May 2013. This action took place within 1/2 mile of launch in Catskill, NY and shows boat in operation, how big boat is and how scenic our area/Hudson River is.
10/21/15: Boat has been winterized and not available, till March 2016. But, you can book now for the 2016 striper season. Thank you!
