This photo was taken after my husband fight his battle with Stage IV Cancer. His strength wasn’t 100% but he did it. First time back on the water! Blessed is an understatement!
Favorite Feature
My husband has been fishing all his life. As a kid he lived on the Pensacola Bch pier, from morning to night, sun shine or rain. He later became a boat Captain fishing and chartering. Working & learning about boats by working on them with the marine mechanic. He later was a private Captain traveling the world fishing bill fish tournaments. When the Sportman boats came out one of his customers (he is now a manufacture rep for fishing & hunting lines) showed him your boat. He knows what to look for in a boat. Not only does he like the shape of the boat so it rides very well but it has easy access to be able to work on. Well designed for so many things, the list could go on. He is actually the one that got you guys to put on our boat the freshwater hose on the console. Sportsman boats later added it to their boats. Not exactly what we have but your boats now have it. He actually spoke with someone many times suggesting additional ideas & correction. He still has ideas! We are the first owns of a Sportsman boat here in Pensacola where we live. You couldn’t even imagine how many Sportman boats have been sold because of him. My husband is very knowledgeable & all his friends, customers value him. His word about your boats is amazing. The list goes on! We would love to upgrade but the price of the Sportman boats keep going up. Our boat is almost 8 years old, you wouldn’t know it because it looks brand new, that’s how he takes care of our boat and all the others he’s ever worked on. It truly is a sight to see and worth checking out and talking with him. Hallie Burnett locally that your company knows has had several Sportsman after our purchase. All the best and keep making! See you out there on the water!
