Great all around boat, built like tanks, fuel efficient, great value. For floundering, the DLX will go places the DLV can't. Do yourself a favor and do a search here for Doc.'s. I ended up going elsewhere for my DLX and saved THOUSANDS! For general CS info try www.groups.msn.com/carolinaskiffowners orwww.carolinaskiffowner.comfor LOTS of info!
