We will be fly fishing from an Everglades 243cc center console. It is 24 feet long with an 8 foot beam. The boat will handle a chop well and still ease along quietly in the skinny water. For fly fishing there is a minimum of things to catch fly line, such as pop up cleats and flush latches. Power comes from a Yamaha 200 hp four stroke so we have plenty of speed if needed. The Everglades 243 is a great combination of comfort and fishability.
