Thanks for the info on those Ocean Masters, they look like a real nice boat. Every review or comment I read on them was very positive and I hear that they are built like a tank. I really like the 31 Sport Cabin model, that's one good looking boat. I wish it's website had some photos of the cabin though, the wife is curious. I bet it's pretty bare bones. As far as the Pursuit, I have been reading up on them a lot and the consensus as far as what I've read is the opposite of what you are saying, but I don't disagree about the Mercury's. Fact is, I've been fishing 15-20 miles out in a 20 ft 10 year-old Pro-Line so I'm willing to bet that any of the boats described as beating you to death out there will still seem pretty nice to me. My ultimate goal is still a Fountain though.

Just my 2 cents worth......but.....don't buy a "fishing boat" for your wife. Get what your want. Once she realizes what it's like to ride down in the cabin at 50mph with a baby(or at any speed in rough seas)she won't be down there for very long, plus it's hot as hell in there if you don't have a generator w/AC. And after a couple of trips she might not even go with you again. If you're not doing a lot of overnight trips a cabin is a waste of space IMO.

After having a center console and now a cuddy walk around i wont have another center console unless its my second boat. I think the ride is better in a walk around cuddy then it is in a center console, you have a place to get out of the weather, store rods while you go in the store, ect. Not only that but when you fish the winter time its a lot warmer and you dont get wet.In most cuddy walk around today there is plenty of room to fish. I wouldnt get a walk around under 20'. If you were going to get a smaller boat like a 17 or 19' then i would recomend a center console.

It's my understanding that Fountain went into Chpt 11 but is still in business. I saw an article a few days ago from BoatTest.com that said that it has recovered. I didn't realize that Polar was gone, they really aren't an option though, too many poor reviews for me. I don't have a problem with a fishing boat with a cabin, i'd rather have a big CC but a cabin would be nice. With the wife and boy aboard there probably wouldn't be too many 50mph + trips, mainly leisurely cruises in the bay and out to the beach or sand island. The wife isn't much for going offshore, that would be for me.
