    Introducing Mag Bay Yachts

    Had the opportunity to check the boat out at the Miami show. Pics don't do it justice. Fit and finish is top shelf. Pretty much you could take a look at a the bilge and know the attention to detail that goes into these.

    Introducing Mag Bay Yachts

    Wow, amazing. Congrats, can't imagine how it felt it finally wind it up and go. Fit and finish appear to be top of the class...a new bench mark. Tons of neat little and sometimes big touches. Electrical panels look awesome. That fuel manifold looks really sweet...is there a way to select...

    Introducing Mag Bay Yachts

    I just found this thread, but the boat looks great. I hope that you still plan on making the palm beach show, I'd like to see it in person. The console design is sick, much better than a forward coffin box. I commend you for putting in the effort to mould the door and access to the console...

    Calstar GF410H

    Thanks for the replies. I plan on using them as my heavy set up, primarily for trolling in the Bahamas - YFT, dolphin, marlin. Fishing is being done from a center console. I was looking at that length b/c I have used the black barts rods and liked them, they are 5'3". That said, 6' seems to...

    Calstar GF410H

    Anyone have any experience w/ this blank (GF410H)? I am looking to have some rods made as the specs look like I am looking for. I am planning on putting Avet EXW 30's on them to fish 50# trolling/standup. I was planning on aftco short straight butts and Aftco wind on rollers. I figured...

    Getting my tuna fix...Jan 12/13th w/pix

    Nice. Could you comment on the logistics of fighting fish from the chair? Does someone need to hold the chair or are the brakes sufficient or is there a line clipped to the shoulder harness? By not being able to use a standup-style harness, do you just muscle the fish in using arms only...

    Avet LX - "Free" vs "Bait"

    Thanks for the replies. If I get the stones to take it apart I will experiment w/ the beville configurations. It seems like a good idea in theory, but at the drag I am fishing (using it w/ 30lb), I do not think it will be that mutch help.

    Avet LX - "Free" vs "Bait"

    Just picked up 4 LX's and stupid question - what is the function difference b/t the "free" and "bait" setting? Does anyone really use the "bait" setting? Largely, my quetsion concerns live baiting, both flat lines and kites. It seems that the "bait" position is not enough resistance to fish...

    New handle for SX & MX

    Dumb question - why not put the new handles on the LX as well? Does it not fit?

    You made the right choice, you won't regret it. As said earlier, you will NOT be able to refrain from checking BD for reports. I am actually glad that I didn't find this site until after I went down there.
