|The F17CCR has a yacht finish front and rear deck connected with a gunwale ring cap. The ring cap gives the boat top sides a much more finished look and allows us to use a larger and stiffer rub rail. We also use the best 316 grade stainless steel cleats and fitting on these models. This boat has the CC Console without a front seat as standard equipment and has our custom built triple rod racks mounted on both sides of console. The console is set up for a top mount binnacle control. A 24 gal fuel tank is located inside the console with a fuel fill located on the port side of the console. The instrument panel has a fuel gauge, voltmeter and a tachometer with a digital hour meter. A space is provided for a 2" engine monitor gauge. There is a Marinco stainless steel power point in the face of the dash for supplemental power for cell phones and hand held GPS instruments. A four switch electrical panel with circuit breaker overload protection and Johnson aerator pumps and automatic bilge pumps are standard. We have added wire conduits glassed into the floor at the hull edge for ease in pulling wires forward for trolling motors and other electrical equipment. A standard feature is a trolling wire harness and receptacle set using Ancor marine grade 6AWG tinned wire layed into the port side conduit for trolling motor.
The steering wheel is a 15" stainless steel wheel coupled to a Uflex No-Feed-Back helm using the newest planetary gear helm system for solid smooth steering with no transmitted engine torque back to the wheel. The custom molded lexan windshield and stainless steel console hand-rail are standard as well. The stern and bow light poles are stored in clips under the front deck. The long rear deck has an 30 qt. aerated live well with a high speed pick-up. The high speed pick-up jets fresh water up to the bait well while the boat is in motion without the aerator pump running. The helm seat is a 76 Qt. insulated cooler with a seat cushion and has a swing-back back rest.
