Boat Camping

This is our boat. It's a 1988 Maverick 18' Master Angler with a 130 Yamaha. It's ideal for flats fishing, though we use it in freshwater and for skiing & tubing as well. It's quite versatile, and we occasionally camp in it as shown in these photo's. The tent fly keeps us dry, yet allows a breeze through. It's really quite pleasant, and we can get far enough from the mangroves that the mosquitoes do not bother us. This allows us to fish for more than one day in areas that are quite remote.

One more than one occasion I have woken up with tailing bonefish in sight, hopped out and started fishing. As the kids become older I look forward to taking them backcountry and camping this way.
