FEATURE REPORT: CENTERFOLD
Guaranteed to be a star, the witch is transformed into a "Centerfold", all new for you in 2016! Captain Jay Watson and crew are busy prepping this beautiful vessel for her charter fishing debut in the spring. While she may be a new name in our fleet, Captain Jay is a seasoned skipper and currently holds a 100-ton USCG Master's License. He has been fishing more than a decade, serving a free-lance mate and captain, most of that time spent right here on the Outer Banks. He's no stranger to competition and has fished in multiple tournaments, most recently earning 2nd place blue marlin in the Pirate's Cove Billfish Tourney. Captain Jay revels in lessons he's absorbed from the legendary OBX captains, holding a high level of respect for the heritages honored and the foundation they have laid. He boldly attributes his successes to their guidance and is proud to set the perfect stage for his anglers fulfill their dreams of landing "the big one" using the skills and techniques he's learned over the years from some of the masters.
The "Centerfold" is a 54 foot custom built sportfisher by Gwaltney and she is undergoing a full upfit over the next few weeks, guaranteed to be the bell of the ball this season! All new Twin Caterpillar C-12 engines sporting 1500 hp giving you a speedy 25 knot transport to the fishing grounds. Captain Jay has the latest, state-of-the-art navigational electronics and safety gear. The cockpit features great mezzanine seating for the group and the spacious salon is sure to impress in any season. With full climate control settings, you can bask in the warmth on those cool mornings or chill out on those hot sunny days. Bring whatever you'd like to eat or drink for the day and enjoy use of a full galley with plenty of comfortable seating, giving you an excellent place to lounge where you can enjoy satellite tv or radio as you enjoy your meal. You can burn off those calories out in the cockpit using your choice of top-of-the-line Shimano tackle. Whether you fight your next fish story in the custom-built teak fighting chair or strap in the stand-up gear, your First Mate, Adam Hayes, will be there in the cockpit, ready to help. Speed, agility, and brute strength will get the job done! What are waiting for? You have all the tools needed to make a great fishing report: the perfect vessel, a great crew, and the best tackle!
