Thresher 140!

When looking for a new boat I wanted something that I could paddle a long ways and get there fast. Also I do a lot of fishing so I wanted a boat set up for it. This boat definitely covers those areas! The first time I took it out was at the KBF, well it rained the whole time and 20mph winds. I had no problem getting across the lake, This boat cut through the wind and waves like butter. This boat is built for offshore in mind and it definitely lived up to that in those conditions. My favorite thing about this boat is the OS Flex Pod. I have my fish finder, and transducer mounted on it with my battery in it! When I'm home I just unlatch 2 latches and it all comes out! I just hook my battery tender to it then when I'm ready to go fishing I just stick it back in, It's so easy! The front storage hatch is nice and keeps all my extra fishing stuff dry! The center storage is sweet! I can keep extra rods in the hull and keep my snacks in there with the storage bin, or as i call it my junk drawer. I would definitely recommend this boat!

Pros & Cons

Pros:
Very fast boat, great in the wind. OS Pod is amazing, Rod storage in Hull, gas peddle style rudder, slidetrax everywhere
Cons:
not great for standing but I also don't have the best balance, after sitting for 9+ hours fishing my bum gets a little sore
