In 2013 we inserted a wider casting deck that everyone has enjoyed. We just bumped that 5’ by 5’ (5x5) deck up a few inches. It’s not too large of a deck to be a nimble platform, as front decks are work spaces. The bow had to move into tight spots with efficiency. From Ozarks boat docks to Sam Rayburn thickets, it should have no problems, yet is still broad enough to fish the open water of Lake Erie.
The layout provides storage in the front console with seven (7) compartments, and 11 storages total, including a scabbard for your dip net. BCB models are tools right down to the flip up mooring cleat for clocking. The only gimmick is the lighted LED acrylic hand rails, which are just plain cool!
We can go on and on about access to pumps, simple fueling, and more. Go experience the efficiency of a Puma FTD and understand the attention to detail others overlook, as everything has reason. Sure, it’s simple stuff. Thought it is the simple stuff that matters to you in a world of competitive angling.
