Like her little sister, the Little Cod 21, the Lingcod 24 is a larger version of our popular Cackler line of boats. This is not just simply a blown-up larger boat though it was born of original thought on what would work as a large and fast skiff, one that could be beached if needed and one that could be trailered to the head of its many adventures.
These Garvey type boats (bow transom, Vee bottomed) make for a really good and rugged skiff. With so much volume forward, the boat can be nosed into the shoreline and the skipper and friends can safely and securely walk off the bow. There are good and sturdy centerline keel and bilge keels that keep the boat off the bottom in a beaching or grounding situation.
A center console rounds out this design but you could work out many different arrangements for passenger seating or even fit a removable small cabin on her like the Honker 18 design. – Sam Devlin
