Default My new Handicapped Boat



























This is my new 2009 Ocean Master 31' CC. After hurricane Ivan destroyed my 42' Ocean Super Sport while it was on the hill in Alabama I finally decided to get a trailerable boat. This boat had accessories added to it to make it more accessible for me since I have been in a wheelchair since 1988. I was35 at the time of my injury leaving me with an incomplete spinal cord injury. I am now 54. I received the boat this spring.

The hull is factory stock except for the door we added on the side for easy entry. While the boat is in the lift I can lower the lift and roll right in. It can be opened at sea when it's calm. It makes a great diving door. The only other thing added for me is the completely electric adjustable seating. Up and down, forward and aft. The seat have super nice padding just like a 70's Cadillac. I have had passengers fall asleep while running.

The electronics are massive.

Raymarine E120 & E80. Autopilot. Glendinning Controls. Radar. FLIR Camera. Raymarine Camera facing aft. ProFish Windlass,Underwater Lights.Radio, Stereo, ect.

I also installed a misting system from Misters Unlimited with 10 misting heads that really cool you down on those hot days.

There are 3 live wells and 2 insulated fish boxes w/pump out.

My boat name is "Survivor" so give me a shout sometimes out in the Gulf.

That's one AWESOME boat!!!!!

can you believe that I called Oceanmasterseveral months back to ask about their boats and in the course of talking to the sales guy (he asked me what kind of job I had) I told him that I work for R & M Mobility in Pensacola making vehicles handicapped accessible.

Then he tells me about this awesome 31' boat they're building for a guy in Gulf Breeze!!

That was months ago.....!

Over the last few months, I've told several of our chair-bound clientel about the boat and several have expressed incredible interest in seeing pictures.

Good Job on the boat, I'm glad you posted the pics/bio I hope to get an Ocean Master one day too!!!!!!!!
