    Default Klamath boats

    Does anybody out there have a Klamath boat? If so how do you like it? What do you like or dislike. How would you improve it? Specifically looking at the 18' OPW and the 19'GTX.

    Thanks,

    JT

    Default Klamath

    I had the 18' open from '89 to '04. 35 hp Yamaha (detuned for the Kenai). It was a great boat. I set it up with 4 pedistal seats in line. That worked perfect for how I used to fish the Kenai, drifting. Installed some flush-mount rod holders. Launched it of the beach countless times with atv's for halibut. That thing paid for itself in fish many times over, something I will never be able to say about my 25' Kingfisher. I sold it for nearly what I paid for it. My only dislike was crossing another boats wake on the Kenai, (guide boat at a snail's pace). The boat tended to heel over if I caught it wrong. Just need to hit it at a good angle. When I sold the boat it was as solid as when I bought it. Stevie Wonder could have put it on the trailer straight. Ran all day on 6 gallons of gas.
