The legendary JAWS boat - the Cricket II - has been donated to an all-volunteer, North Carolina non-profit. She's been fully restored and out-fitted for the purpose of taking disabled veterans and combat- wounded warriors fishing.  Her cockpit is 22' wide to easily accommodate wheelchairs.  Other modifications have been made to assure a comfortable and safe fishing adventure for our military heroes. Civilians may fish for a reasonable donation with all proceeds going directly to providing fishing trips for our veterans. Our port of call for the 2016 fishing season is Morehead City Yacht Basin.   MAP IT
