How will this hull take the chop out in the bay in the afternoons? My Four Winns Horizon 170 takes a beating. We have to basically putter in, otherwise my wife has to see the chiropractor soon thereafter.

How would this boat do in the flats? Looks like more of a bay boat than flats boat. Anyone know what the draw?

Comments?

I've owned two of that same vintage. One with a 70 Evinrude and the other with a 115 Yamaha.

Overall great build quality if you want a solid, no nonsense, and no frills boat.

However, there is a downside to that. It's design tends to allow a lot of spray so it's a wet ride. It doesn't have any flare or cut to the bow at all, so the ride is somewhat bumpy in anything over very light chop of a few inches. However, because of the solid build, it shouldn't leave you doubting it's abilities.

As far a comfort goes, this is not a comfort/kushy boat for the wife to enjoy a ride in the bay with a 10-knot wind at 20MPH. If that's what you're looking for, then keep looking.

However, if you want a good bay boat platform that will serve you well for fishing and get you home when you're done, then it's fine for the job as long as the motor is up to the challenge.

That's a good idea about the stern seating for the wife. That's the smoothest ride in any boat. Not the best view, but the best ride for sure.
