Yay!!!!!! I finally took delivery of my New 2019 Hell’s bay Marquesa. I love the new carbon Innegra hull! She is even lighter than the previous hull.
She is basically outfitted as my previous skiff with a few exceptions. I had the boys at Hell’s bay add a few more lights and changed a few minor factors. The new skiff is Medium Grey with a beautiful Guide green non-Skid. I went with the same power on this skiff. Yamaha builds the most consistent and reliable outboard motors so naturally that’s what I went with!
To top her off I added a NEW Humminbird Solix 12 SI MEGA + g2 to garantee no fish are overlooked. The clarity of the side imaging picture from this unit is truly incredible. There is nothing else like it on the market. I have a Minn Kota ulterra on the bow and will soon be installing a 8’ Talon on the stern. I’m excited to continue to be a part of the Johnson Outdoors family. These tools will help me to be the best Guide I can be in part of their synchronicity. It is truly a one boat network. I can literally control the functions of both the ulterra Trolling motor and the Talon shallow water anchor from the behind the Solix.
So far I am impressed with the new prop. I changed to a 19 pitch 4 blade and LOVE the hole shot. She also retains her original top speed!!
.... best of all!!!! SHE HAS BEEN CHRISTENED WITH SNOOK SLIME!! 😉
