Welcome Aboard The Slay Ride!
The Slay Ride is a 1994 27’ C-Hawk. Built in Bailey, North Carolina, C-Hawks are designed to handle all types of ocean conditions. With its large, open decks and comfort while running. Powered by a 2012 4 stroke Yamaha 225 hp that gets us to and from the fishing grounds and a 4 stroke Yamaha 9.9 hp high thrust trolling motor. This is definitely a fisherman’s boat.
My GPS is a Garmin with all the charts needed for fishing Southeast Alaska waters. I run with two fish sounder/depth finders. A Hummingbird 747C and a Hummingbird 596C. Having both allows me great precision in finding and defining fish and schools of bait.
The fishing gear consists of Penn, Shimano and Abu Garcia reels; Lamiglass, Diawa, Shimano and Ugly Stick rods. I also use four electric Cannon down riggers to keep the baits in the strike zone.
All required Coast Guard safety equipment is on board and kept up to date. Because I am also a commercial fisherman, the Slay Ride undergoes two Coast Guard inspections as required by the US Coast Guard.
The Slay Ride is equipped with your comfort in mind. Full rain gear is provided for all. There is also a partially covered deck and cabin space with an enclosed forward cabin with a marine toilet. Soft drinks, bottled water, hot coffee and snacks are included. Alcoholic beverages are not provided, but they are available for purchase at Knudson Cove Marina after 8 a.m. as well as snack items, souvenir hats and t-shirts.
