Wow! Can’t say enough about the team at FC Boats – from our online research and then a visit to the Boat Show to talk over a New FC 430cc with a few customer requests added into the mix. Our desire to have a fit for purpose package was embraced by Max and his team in the fabrication department with great attention to detail we wanted a light, stable, versatile, and Safe small boat to do Saltwater and freshwater fly fishing and to be able to get outside to jig and stick bait for bigger pelagic fish as well. The FC430 is highly versatile for us fishing the flats in Golden Bay or the North Island harbours for Kingfish, snapper and other saltwater species on fly thru to targeting structures in the open, equally at home on the lakes and rivers throughout both Islands. The Riptide Minn-Kota is an incredible must have and we would never be without one Wisper silent sneaking up in roaming fish in knee deep water on the flats and lake edges to the GPS on the Minn-Kota holding position over structure or fighting the big one in the open, it’s just fantastic! Working thru the design with the team at FC Boats was effortless a couple of visits to the shop to make small adjustments did not phase them and gave me a great sense of ‘buy in’ to the project Its true “Boats built by Fisherman for Fisherman” Thanks Ross and Max (Team FC) for an outstanding FC430 it looks great and fishes better. Grant, Max & Tim – Team Surf Candy – FC 430cc
