Nice pix, looks very rugged that little workhorse...perhaps...seahorse . I rented a boat something like that about 23 years ago at a lake in Wisconsin. It was a firberglas boat that at the time appeared to be about 40 years old, Heavy, very thick robust construction...perfect for heavy duty rentals that need to take a licking and keep on ticking as the Timex ad of the late '60's said.

It was very serviceable and I recall trolling with a wet fly (fly rod) around the edges of a weed bed...when ..BAM ...something hit the fly hard. It got off quickly and I never could figure out what kind of fish tat was on line for a brief moment. Talking to local guys, they said it sounded like a big Largemouth Bass.
