“Sounds like a great way to test this boat,” I replied, considering the 30-mile run and a three-foot swell out of the west. The picturesque coves of Catalina teem with fish, and the island’s quiet anchorages beckon anglers to spend more than a day. The Striper 230 Walkaround was designed for such trips, with features that let you fish hard and then grab a good night’s rest afloat in a roomy cabin. Time constraints would not allow us to overnight, but as we cruised west, I slipped through the companionway to the port side of the helm, flipped on the LED cabin light, and explored the accommodations. With 5½ feet of headroom and a V-berth measuring 7¾ feet long by nearly 5½ feet wide (at the aft edge), this is one of the largest cabins I’ve seen on a boat this size, with a length overall of 22 feet 8 inches.
