DLX A Workhorse for Anglers and Boaters

By Ted Lund

Whether you are a duck hunter, flounder fisherman, like to pull crab traps or dive for lobsters in the Florida Keys, passionate outdoorsman needs to take a long look at the DLX-Series of flat-bottom skiffs can be used for work or play.

The DLX can be used for almost anything. From a day of fishing, cruising or commercial boating, to search and rescue, filming or photography.

DLX Skiff-Saltwater Fishing-

The stable, durable and fuel efficient DLX can carry more weight further and faster using less horsepower.

The Carolina Skiff DLX is the floating version of that work truck you fell in love with long ago.

The DLX draws very little water, so getting back into the shallow areas isn’t an issue for the flat bottom skiff. The DLX-Series is a patented hull design with bow splash guards to help keep you dry from bow over spray. The DLX also has positive tracking keels on the running surface, keeping the boat tracking true while maneuvering without the typical flat-bottom slide.

The DLX is available in seven models from 16-feet long all the way up to 24 feet. There’s a size for every need. And all are action-packed with features including a console with binnacle controls, full instrumentation, and a console seating set. Front deck is coated with nonskid and features starboard lockable lids. Head to the stern and you’ll find an integrated live well and fuel tank (size depends on the model.  Cockpit seating is complemented with a stainless steel cooler frame with the 70-quart removable cooler. The DLX’s foam flotation exceeds US Coast Guard standards and provides for positive flotation, shallow-draft and quick planing.  Also, Carolina Skiff boats are certified by the National Marine Manufacturer’s Association, adhering to the highest quality standards in the U.S. marine industry.

And like the entire Carolina Skiff family, the DLX lineup is warranted to protect against delamination or separation for five years, providing that the integrity of the hull and floor has not been damaged by improper use.

Carolina Skiff is currently the number one boat brand in retail sales of outboard-powered fiberglass boats, 24-feet and under. Their popular brands include Carolina Skiff, Sea Chaser, Fun Chaser deck boats and Fun Chaser pontoon boats. To build your own or to locate a dealer near you, visit www.carolinaskiff.com.

How Are Retail Sales in 2017?

Despite consumer uncertainty, as well as a very sluggish beginning to 2017, the U.S. retail sales industry is projected to increase 4% this year. Headlines show that many retailers and companies posted “soft” holiday sales to end 2016, which caused some notable retailers to either cut jobs or close stores as a result. However, when it comes to 2017, the National Retail Federation (NFR) released an economic forecast projecting the retail industry (this excludes automobiles, gas stations, and restaurants) to grow and reach that 4% increase aim.
