Bone Boats 18 Cape Island


The new 18 Cape Island from Bone Boats is a versatile shallow-draft boat that can handle a wide range of fishing chores. Basic configuration is that of a flats boat, but with the addition of a Carolina-style flared bow. The Cape Island offers dry-running, rough-water capabilities while retaining the ability to sleuth the shallows. Standard Lenco trim tabs even out the ride. Beneath the aft deck is a 30-gallon live well. Additional oversized, in-deck storage compartments handle everything from lure bags to fly rods, and all are lockable.

The gunwales contain lockable rod storage for a dozen outfits, keeping them out of sight and protected from the elements. An optional poling platform bolts to the rear deck. All hardware is stainless and flush-mounted. The ergonomically designed console features built-in tackle storage, an electrical panel and hydraulic steering with an adjustable steering wheel. Bone Boats, Metairie, LA; (504) 828-5089.
