Not only does he have top-of-the-line safety features but he has all the Mac Daddy electronics such as a colored fish finder, 64-mile radar, chart plotter, spotlights, and one hell of a stereo. The cockpit and cabin were built completely custom with insulated fish boxes, pompanette seats, LED lighting, a teal dinette, a bathroom, and even A/C!
All you need to bring is a Montauk saltwater fishing license and your food, drinks, a hat, sunscreen, and polarized sunglasses. Jim will take care of the rest!
