About the Boat

Welcome aboard the First Light!

The First Light is a 29-foot C-Hawk built in Baily, North Carolina. These boats are known for their ability to comfortably handle all types of sea conditions, and the First Light is no exception. She is fast, quiet and stable. With a spacious fishing deck, she will comfortably accommodate up to six passengers. The enclosed cabin will keep you out of the weather if you like, and there is covered seating on the fishing deck.

The boat is equipped with top of the line fishing electronics that help me find the fish and stay on top of them. All of your fishing equipment is provided and my boat is outfitted with four electronic downriggers.

The First Light is equipped with your comfort in mind. The seating area is covered to keep you out of the rain, although I do provide rain gear. A fully enclosed marine toilet is in the bow. Hot coffee, soft drinks, bottled water, and snacks are included with your charter. Alcoholic beverages are not provided, but they are available for purchase at Knudson Cove Marina after 8:00 AM. Snack items, souvenir hats, t-shirts and fishing tackle are also available at Knudson Cove Marina.

All required Coast Guard safety equipment is on board and up to date. Prior to starting the season, the boat undergoes a voluntary Coast Guard inspection. As required by the Coast Guard, I maintain current Red Cross First Aid and CPR training.
