    Requested advice from seasoned professionals

    Ive had a 21' WACC with an 82gallon and my current 22' Pilot only has 55gal. I can go further with the 55gal just due to boat design and weight. As for gear, you must have been one hell of a pier fisherman with those set ups! I suggest the same a 50 trolling setup but in addition grab a budget...

    Does anyone anchor off the beach to just chill?

    Right across from Ballast point theres a protected beach thats super shallow. We beach my pilot house there all the time and hang out on the sand. You have to stay with your boat though because you cannot anchor but you just beach it and let it sit and move it with the swell and tide changes...

    FWIW I did have a 30 gal on my old boat out on the swim step, And it was a single side swim step. I just put in bigger washers on the mounting bolts and it never moved.. was kinda a pain to lean over and get bait out of all the time tho.

    Ring in gel coat around scuppers

    that happens also when the boat has been cut and buffed, You have to stay clear of those items then come back and do them by hand. Resulting in less cutting of the gelcoat and it will oxidize back faster than the rest. I Know because I used to be a detailer.

That was last year, might be different...
