The Silver Bullet

In a literal flash, this center console sportfish boat may be here and gone. Jay Perrotta, who founded the successful Black Lab Marine, a builder of plate-alloy, outboard-powered boats from 23 to 29 feet, has recently partnered with Phil Hulsizer, founder of Welding Services, to start a new boat company called Rock Salt Boats. The first launch from the fledgling venture is the 34-foot, plate-alloy speedster you see here, the Rock Salt 34 CC.

The marine-grade-aluminum-alloy-constructed vessel is designed for the hardcore offshore angler and will be matched with twin four-stroke Suzuki power. Rock Salt's founder describes the 34 as having "the heart of a Navy attack boat, the soul of a Coast Guard rescue boat, and the brains of today's large offshore capable center consoles..." Some the 34's standard features include: T-top, 50- and 30-gallon livewells, 150-gallon in-deck fishbox, 2/nine-foot in-deck rod stowage lockers, rigging station, and more. Options include triple outboards, painted hull, underwater lights, tower, and outriggers, to name a few.
