In the early 2000's marine writer Frank Sargeant wrote, "Just what the heck is a family-friendly fishing boat? Usually, it's a fishing-family failure that fits neither bill well. But Hydra-Sports new 202 DC scores high in both departments - it has the potential to make everyone from hardcore kingfishers to spike-haired kneeboarders happy."
This 202 DC has dual consoles and tall safety-glass windshields that protect families who don't like riding in the wind and spray. The port console has a large enclosed head with 3'6" of headroom that easily accommodates women and kids.
The bow platform sports good elevation for fish spotting as well as an insulated fish box big enough to handle a full days catch. This area also comes with upholstery pads that turn it from fishing territory into a conversation pit, complete with padded backrests.
The transom fulfills a dual mission: The 36-gallon oval livewell in the center makes anglers happy while an integrated swim platform with a flip-down stainless-steel boarding ladder is useful to water skiers, boarders and swimmers.
Skis and kneeboards-or tackle boxes and gaffs-fit neatly into an 8'-long, 1 3/4'-deep locker in the center of the sole. On either side of the motor well are padded jump seats and drink holders.
All hatches on the 202 DC are a composite of fiberglass and foam, and all are secured with piano-type hinges. Stringers and the transom are rot-proof composites, and the boat's running surfaces are reinforced with Kevlar. All hoses are double clamped, and all through-hulls are bronze, not the less expensive and less durable plastic variety.
Again, back when it was new Sargeant called this boat "a crowd-pleasing combo platter."
If you're looking for a great boat for fishing and family fun that is reasonably priced - this is the one.
Overall this boat has had excellent care. The hull is in excellent condition for a boat of its age. It has spent its days on a lift out of the water when not in use. It is always covered with a full stem-to-stern cover and the cover itself is in excellent condition. The extended bimini top and the tow pole are both relatively new and add considerably to this boats "family" use attraction.
The interior of the boat is in good shape although the cushions are all original and in the condition you'd expect 14-year-old vinyl/cushions to be in (see pictures). There is also a small piece of broken plastic on the face of the storage bin on the port side of the passenger console (again, see picture).
Everything about this boat is in really nice shape for its age. You won't be disappointed in this one.
