Video Transcript – Aluminum Boat For Sale – Mission Marine 288 (25′) – GREAT HANDLING IN HEAVY SEAS

The Mission 25 is no ordinary twenty five footer. Here we see it out in some small seas, five to six footers. Everything is fine. But what I want you to think about is freeboard … and never forget freeboard. When these waves get big, you need a little extra insurance around your boat, and that’s what freeboard provides.

Look at these [Mission 25' next to two 25' Boston Whalers]. Three twenty five-footers. Think about hitting a big wave. On the nose with this [Boston Whaler bow] versus all this [Mission 25 bow]. This is where the lift comes; it brings you up over. Some say this might be a torpedo going through. I want to be here [on the Mission 25].

Also consider when you’re working the boat. On this boat [Mission 25] you can stay inside of the hull with all this extra freeboard, working safely. On this you’re standing outside on this deck [Boston Whaler 25].

You can see that this boat [Mission 25] has just hit a wave and she’s down and she’s getting ready to hit the next one. Freeboard is what keeps that thing up and proud.

Here she is launching [Mission 25]; you can see the waves in the background; the boat is still stable, fellows holding on … but freeboard; a great thing in heavy seas.

Stability and free board make for great handling in heavy seas. Look at this boat [Mission 25] … Twenty five feet long, and we have one, two, three, four, five, Six, seven, eight, nine people standing on one side of a twenty five footer at one time and it just lists a little bit. That’s what really makes a difference when you’re out in heavy seas! Whether you got caught, you’re going out to save somebody, or man we’re just catching fish!

Again this is one of our twenty-nine footers [Mission 29'] but it’s compared to the Safe boat. Look at the height of their bow compared to this [Mission 29] and imagine a very large wave coming; imagine having to work forward on this [Mission 29'] verses this and this is all you have for protection [Safe boat].

When the days are nasty and you’re the only one going out — but the fishing is good — you want to be a Mission Marine.

Look at these fellows they just got back in, and they look ready to go again.

The Mission 25.

Aluminum Boat For Sale – Mission Marine 338 – ROCK, SOLID MACHINERY

Video Transcript — Aluminum Boat For Sale – Mission Marine 338 – ROCK, SOLID MACHINERY

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce you to the Mission 338. This is rock-solid machinery, heavy water boat, lots of freeboard forward, lots of hull, all-aluminum catamaran, built to go where the others are afraid to even leave the dock.

This boat is on a Myco trailer that was custom built just for it: triple axles, all-welded aluminum, just top, top shelf in every regard.

This is another Mission 29 compared to some little boat; this I think is a Safe Boat. It is a 29 footer also. You may be able to see a little difference between the two. If you hit a wave and the wave is this tall [points above the bow of the Safe Boat], gives you something to think about.

You can see these fellows walking around the side of the Mission boat, and really [there's] no place to walk on the Safe boat. [Pointing to Safe Boat] I don’t know how you get to the bow if you don’t walk out here on this collar or crawl on your hands and knees and come up through a little hatch.

This is the bow area of the Mission 29, and one thing that you see here is when you want to go up on that bow, we walk-up steps. And we’ve got handrailings there. You can see that we have on this boat [points to another Mission Marine 29'] the same kind of deal, and that makes it safe and easy to get to that area.

And then there’s a large seat that’s almost the full beam except this is a walk around boat. Lots of workspace. Also notice these are Freeman watertight hatches; you don’t see that on a pleasure boat, that’s for sure. Here’s another picture of this seat; great place to sit up and run the boat from — not run the boat — but great place to sit and enjoy the boat.

Moving forward from the cockpit to the control station, you can see there’s plenty of room. Keep in mind that this is very different from what we saw on that last little Safe Boat that has an area that is about that wide for you to walk on and go forward.

We’re back.

The Mission 29.

Second to none.

Aluminum Boat For Sale – Mission Marine 288 – Cockpit

http://www.MissionMarine.com/134.htm.

All Welded Aluminum Catamaran.

Video Transcript — Aluminum Boat For Sale – Mission Marine 288 — Cockpit

This is the cockpit of our 25 footer, and there’s lots to see. Let’s start over here on the starboard side. These lines are tied to GM cleats and that’s what operates that high-low version of the fenders. Notice also that we have non-skid on the inside and the outside.

In the military version, you got guys climbing from one side of the boat out and from another boat on and that’s why it wraps this area. Spring-loaded pop-up cleats, our crashbar. Look at this step! Do you think that’ll last? It’s mounted on a pair of angles that are 3″x 3″ x 3/8″ thick, and that’s also what this entire perimeter is built out of. Here we have a Freemen watertight hatch.

This is the freeing port. So when water comes in, there’s not a lot keeping it in. You can certainly get leaves and so on through this. Here we have our towbit. We have storage in this raised upper area. Here’s looking down on that area. Lots of space forward, backwards, left, and tight. A good working platform.

Also in the cockpit, we have a side door. And there are lots of advantages, whether you’re bringing in fish or stepping off the boat from here onto a floating dock where the two deck levels are almost identical. And if we look just after the cockpit … with our special brackets, wWe’re able to see we can turn this engine all the way out of the water. It also permits us the ability to keep the engine straight up and down and still Have the scag of the outboard above the bottom of the boat.

Video Transcript — Aluminum Boat For Sale – Mission Marine 288 – All Welded Aluminum Hardtop and Console

Here we have a 25 footer. I want you to notice the hardtop. It’s all welded aluminum. it’s not going to rot; it’s not going to rip or tear apart, and we have handles everywhere.

Also in this picture you can see our side door and the high-low fenders.

Here, as we start to look at the details, we can see a large binnacle box and a very large leaning post where people can lean on it from both sides.

Our side door is open … more grab rails here [and] all across the back and of course at the edge of the seat.

This particular boat has a dodger on it, so when there is spray – and that’s inevitable – [and] it’s windy and rough, you have a place to stick your head in and be protected a little bit.

Here is a little more detail on the binnacle box. Notice that we have removable panels that we can mount electronics in. 3 in this application and then actually a 4th one down on the horizontal area. This is so when you buy a new GPS, a chartviewer, or depthfinder, and so on, you can actually remove these panels, mount them out on the bench, and then put in your new part. You still have access from underneath the binnacle to do servicing, but when you buy new electronics and they’re a different shape, you just modify the plate or whatever appropriate cover you choose. There’s a lot of advantages to that, because these boats last, and you’re going to have different electronics over the years.

That wraps up a little bit about this part of the 25 footer.

Aluminum Boat For Sale – Mission Marine 338 (29′) – ADMIRAL’S COMMAND CENTER

Video Transcript — Aluminum Boat For Sale – Mission Marine 338 (29′) – ADMIRAL’S COMMAND CENTER

In this video we’re going to talk about the Mission 338 command center. This console is unique in many ways. Number one, it’s big; you’re not stacking a bunch of electronics on top of each other.

Also note the removable panels; these removable panels allow you to change electronics without cutting a bunch of new holes in the binnacle box. You have extra area here for a laptop.

You have handles. Notice here there is storage for mag lights. The steering wheel even tilts! Your compass. These hoses go up to your windshield wipers and there are washers attached.

This is underneath the console; what’s important for you to see … these are radios … [points to the wiring]; notice how this whole area is accessible from under the console; you don’t have to remove the electronics to work on them; you can install them and then go behind the console to service anything necessary.

Another important note. Do you see this? This is a welded aluminum rod; unlike almost everyone else in boat-building, all of our wires are attached to rods so that they don’t shake loose. Most companies just bundle everything together and hope that it stays. Here we attach it to welded rods.

If we look here, we’re down at the deck level; this boat is even equipped with its own ship’s services battery. This is a third battery on this boat; it is designed exclusively to service the electronics suite.
It has its own disconnect and so on. Notice here we even have an electrical outlet twelve volt.

Charging system, isolation transformer, a railing in the ceiling, more handrails, wipers mounted at the top.

Look at the seating; this is a Stidd seat, the finest seat money can buy for marine operation. This seat goes up, down, backwards, forwards, swivels, even has – as you can see – seat belts, and probably the most amazing thing, is the way this thing feels when you sit in it.

I want you to take a moment and look at the overhead; here’s what’s special – if you look closely, here’s an antenna that on most competitors would be mounted through the ceiling; that would give you four potential holes for leaks; but look! this is mounted above this ceiling area and so the bolt holes don’t even go through the roof; neither do any of these, or these, and so on. That’s a big advantage. If there’s no hole, it’s never going to leak there.

The 338, one heck of a machine!

http://www.MissionMarine.com/338.htm.

This is no ordinary boat. And this is no ordinary opportunity. 34% off the Retail Price.

Video Transcript — Aluminum Boat For Sale – Mission Marine 338 – This Cockpit Will Blow You Away!

The Mission 338; this is no ordinary boat, this is a machine.

Take a look at this cockpit. This boat is 11-1/2 feet wide; that’s room to work, whether you’re fishing, playing, or providing a place to put survivors.

Look at the gunnel. It is radiused at the top, radiused at the bottom; so when you’re leaning against it, it’s not a problem.

Popup cleats … they’re out of the way unless you need them. Solid, serious steps, non-skid, storage in the upper transom, a giant towbit, watertight hatches, non-skid decking … and look at the size of that scupper! The water is going out of that; that’s not going to get clogged with a bunch of leaves and debris.

As we look here, we can see that the engines are mounted so far apart that you have tremendous control when docking, and yet this boat still gets up on a plane and steers just fine with one engine.

With a bunch of guys on it, there’s still room, room to work, room to add more people.

Look at the side door. Look how wide it is. Whether you’re bringing fish aboard or you’re at a floating dock and you’re just having people walk on and off; it works great.

That’s the Mission 338, one heck of a powerful machine.

Aluminum Boat For Sale – Mission Marine 338 – The Omnipotent Master Of Maneuverability

Video Transcript — Aluminum Boat For Sale – Mission Marine 338 – The Omnipotent Master Of Maneuverability

The Mission 338. In this video we’re going to talk about aneuverability. Maneuverability is important to everyone, whether you’re docking, undocking, helping to pull a survivor out of the water, or getting close to the fish.

For years people have said if you have two engines you have an advantage because you can use differential power, putting one engine in forward the other in reverse. The reality is when you look at a boat like this [points to competitor boat] where the engines are mounted very close to each other you have very little control; sure you can use differential power; you can advance of throttles; you can make a lot of noise; but not much happens.

Physics calls for leverage, and in physics when we move these engines farther apart we have a bigger lever, and that’s why in every contest we’ve entered these Mission Marine boats, we always are better at docking, undocking, getting closer to the buoy and so on. And there’s even more to consider.

On this boat, [points to competitor boat] if they need to go into shallow water and maneuver, they have to tilt the engines up and when they tilt they mostly blow bubbles. The Mission Marine though has a very special plate on the transom which permits it to go up in the air but still keep the engine vertical which provides the ability for the propeller not to just blow bubbles but to pump water backwards and forwards enhancing that maneuverability.

Maneuverability is safety. Maneuverability is also the ability to pull into a marina and look like a pro.

Video Transcript — Aluminum Boat For Sale – Mission Marine 338 – Pick Up Your Jaw After Watching

The Mission Marine 338. In this video we’re going to talk about stability. Stability affects everything: fatigue – the ability to stay on that boat and work, fish, play and not get beat up by all the rocking-and-rolling.

This is one of our 25 footers. Let’s count the people: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine people on one side of the boat, and you can see how much it’s listing, and that big guy in the front is about 285 pounds. Not much list; not much at all.

If you think about working from a solid platform – a wide, solid platform – there’s just more you can do … you have more room to work.

If you notice here, this fellow can walk up and all the way around this console and still has a great big cock pit to work; he can work all down the sides.

That’s the advantage of Mission Marine. If you think about it, this width is a little like standing with your feet apart verses having your ankles touching. This is with your ankles touching [points to competitor boat] this is with your feet apart [points to Mission Marine boat].

That’s the advantage.

Video Transcript — Aluminum Boat For Sale – Mission Marine 21′ – Cockpit on the Biggest, Baddest 21′

I’d like to show you now a little about the cockpit on the 21 footer.

This is a real working area. We see lots of space for only being 21 feet.

Our leaning post is designed so that you can operate the boat from the front,you can lean on it from the back, and it’s still a big open area.

Again note,we have a large side door.

We look in this picture, [at cockpit] lots of structurals. Look at the size of these freeing ports! Boy, that means if you get water in there – for whatever reason — it can sure get out in a hurry.

[The cockpit has] Access panels, we can see our engines, some nonskid over the deck, our corner cleats and so on. Look again at the size of that freeing port! That means you can really move water if you ever had to … the leaves are not going to pile up behind that!
