The Boat (Rodwrestler )
1977 42 ft Post with a complete retrofit in 2021

This boat has been designed around fishing the Great Lakes Salmon Fishery while perfecting the ideal layout for chartering to a client base. Post Yachts were manufactured in New Jersey building a highly reputable Custom Sportfish. I’ve chartered the boat since 2006, taking full advantage of the opportunities offered by this large vessel.
