About My Chris Craft 30′ Tournament Sportfish Boat
My boat is a 30′ Chris Craft Tournament Sportfish complete with cabin and restroom. This is the only Chris Craft (series) ever built on a deep-V Hunt-designed offshore hull. With a steep 21-degree of deadrise at the transom and six lifting strakes, this boat is able to run with the big boys when the weather gets nasty. Engines rest on inverted aluminum mounts, very heavy duty. Twin 350-hp diesel engines will cruise at 25 knots and reach a top speed of 34 knots.
For more than 30 years running, I have maintained a 200 ton USCG Captain’s License and am fully insured. My boat is located on the B-Dock in Slip 46 at the Galveston Yacht Basin located at 715 North Holiday Drive, Galveston, TX 77550. This is a private dock and my boat is ready to go in the slip when your arrive, so NO WAITING at the boat ramp like many other fishing charters. Restrooms are available also at the dock.
CATCH AND RELEASE FISHING IS STRONGLY ENCOURAGED!
I encourage you to have great fishing fun and take plenty of photos and videos and let the fish be enjoyed again by others. Of course, you may keep the fish up to the allowable limits and take them home and enjoy a fine table fare with your family and friends!
