Welcome aboard the Josie Lyn!
The Josie Lyn is a 29 foot C-Hawk built in Baily, North Carolina. These boats are known for their ability to comfortably handle all types of sea conditions, and the Josie Lyn is no exception. She is fast, quiet and stable. The fishing deck has an enormous amount of space and will comfortably accommodate up to six passengers.
In 2016 I re-powered with Twin Suzuki 200hp 4 stroke motors, which are quiet, powerful and reliable. My trolling/auxiliary motor is a Yamaha 9.9 HP high thrust. The enclosed cabin will keep you out of the weather if you like, and there is covered seating on the fishing deck for all.
The boat is equipped with top of the line fishing electronics- Furuno and Lowrance Color fish finders, Nobel Tec computer charts and Lowrance Color Chart Plotter help me find the fish and stay on top of them.
All your fishing equipment is provided and includes Shimano, Lamiglass and G. Loomis rods with Shimano and Penn reels. For Halibut fishing I use Shimano Tekota, Avet and Shimano and Daiwa electric reels. My downriggers are Scotty Electrics.
The Josie Lyn is equipped with your comfort in mind. Full rain gear is provided for all. The seating area is covered to keep you out of the rain. A fully enclosed marine toilet is in the bow. Soft drinks, bottled water, hot coffee and snacks are included with your charter. My always popular smoked salmon dip is ready for you in the cooler. Alcoholic beverages are not provided, but they are available for purchase at Knudson Cove Marina after 8 AM. Snack items souvenir hats, t-shirts and fishing tackle are also available at Knudson Cove.
All required Coast Guard Safety equipment is on board and up to date. Prior to starting the season the boat undergoes a voluntary Coast Guard inspection. As required by the Coast Guard I hold current Red Cross First Aid and CPR training.
