The Sea Note Sport Fishing Boat
The Sea Note is 55 feet long and was built in 1996 by Capt. Benjie Stansky, designed by Glenn Haught from Sportsman Boatworks. These boats (Sportsman)~ are well know for being the classic Carolina custom boat. The craftsmanship and seaworthiness are legendary.
Sea Note combines the traditional with the modern by using a cold molded hull strengthen with the latest Kelvar fiberglass technology. The recent re-power with Cat C 12 engines and Twin Discs transmissions have provided additional comfort, less engine noise, and Caterpillar's latest engine management soft ware (ADAM 3) excels with smooth, quiet, acceleration and considerably less smoke. This translates to a 30 knot cruise with a top speed of35 to 36 knots, if there's a hot bite going on, I can get you there.
The salon is heated and air conditioned with comfortable appointments. An island bar hosts a refrigerator and microwave for any food preparation you might need throughout the day. The entertainment center includes a TV -VCR, stereo and CD player. The head has been remodeled with accommodations for the ladies.
Topsides the fly bridge boosts a splendid view both visually and electronically. Furuno's latest electronics package, NAV -NET, combines radar, GPS, and depth sounder all on one screen. This feature adds to the fish finding abilities since the 6KW radar keeps up with birds above the water, while the sounder locates the bait and fish below.
The spacious cockpit is setup for serious fishing, featuring a Murray Bros. tuna chair and two sailfish chairs. All tackle is custom built and matched to each targeted species from 20# TLD's for white marlin and sailfish to unlimited class 130 two-speed for giant tuna . We also have a full set of stand-up tackle for fall tuna-chunking.
