About the Rock Solid
The Rock Solid is a 27′ center console inboard diesel. The power plant is a 315 Cummins diesel B series. By choice, this was and has been the motor Capt Kelly has enjoyed for its simplicity and reliability. It has a full tower to the washboards and a nice high elevated platform to accommodate his sight fishing addictions! The Rock Solid also has a 8ft by 8ft hardtop with curtains to hide under in case of the random summer rain storm. Live wells and a ginormous fish box/casting deck would make any meat hog happy when this is full. A bottom machine and plotter are located both up on the tower and downstairs on the center console. A VHF radio, fire extinguisher, life jackets, throw ring, an EPIRB or Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon used to alert search and rescue services in the event of an emergency (some boats unfortunately do not carry these), and flares help to ensure safety. We are fully licensed by the United States Coast Guard, insured, and carry all necessary permits and blanket fishing licenses for the boat.
Rock Solid Fishing is a member of the Raymarine Prostaff and carries current, nice electronics. We have Bluetooth Fusion Marine stereo for your listening enjoyment.
