This is what i fish from. I havent got all of the rod holders on it yet for cat fishing and thats because i,ve been doing alot of salt water fishing. but now its time to get back to catfishing. This a 1973 17 foot center console del quay with a 1983 115 mariner. this was made in england by del quay ship builders, They have been building ships since the 17th century. As i have been told but i dont really know but they say that this is the first unsinkible boat that was built or least one of the first. but it gets the job done . and it works for me ,,,,,,since i cant swim,,,,,,,lol.
