Do you buy a jet or a prop? For many of us, that’s a subject worthy of great debate. Well, ponder no longer! This new 21-foot hottie from Fish Rite is the answer…and the best part of the deal is: you can have it for $10!
Outfitted with a 225 Mercury Optimax outboard that comes complete with easy-change jet and prop lower units, you can go anywhere the fish are…up the river, out in the bay and everything in between! According to Jamie Dorsey of Fish Rite Boats, the boat can be changed from prop to jet or vise-versa in about a half hour once you get the hang of it.
The key to the whole deal is the jackplate mounted on the transom, which allows you to raise or lower the motor to match whichever lower end you’re using on a given day…
The boat’s also completely loaded with electronics and everything you’ll need to get out on the water. And the best part is you can own it for $10. The boat was built especially for the American Fishing Foundation which is a non-profit group dedicated to bringing back and enhancing West Coast salmon and steelhead populations. The vessel will be raffled off at the AFF’s Klamath River Fishing Derby Sept. 18-19. For more information on AFF, how to join and where to buy raffle tickets, click the link above.
