PROUD SOLAS BOAT OWNER – ISLAND NEAR HOMER, ALASKA
I live on a remote island in Alaska year round. When I was looking for a boat in 2002 I knew it had to do 3 things; Perform safely in heavy seas and strong wind, pack lots of weight and be able to winch up my beach.
I bought a used 4.8 NAIAD sportline, , already 10 years old and undoubtedly one of the best purchases of my life! With twin 40’s it does all 3 of these things with ease and is fuel efficient!
This is an awesome boat for extreme conditions in which it is tested regularly. I am often on the water when others are not. My wife and I love our “Mussel”!
I also own a 3.0 and hopefully someday a 7.0 with a wheelhouse to keep the freezing spray off my new born daughter!
