If there are fish on the chew, there’s usually a Haines Hunter 445F prowling nearby. These classic consoles might look like a bathtub, but their reputation as a giant killer is legendary.

The Captain has recently acquired one of these beauties and is in the process of kitting her out. Make sure you check out part one when The Captain hits the stands this summer.
