Where and how do you fish the most?

What performance features are most important to you(Extreme shallow water capabilities, general all around use, big water 90% of the time, etc)?

The boat manufacturer is only part of the equation.

How it runs (whether it runs!) depends on the dealer that rigs it.

Even the best boat, if rigged by a chimp, just becomes a headache.

I've got a Hewes Searunner.

I bought a 19' Raider about 2 years ago. Raider's are virtually identical to the Hewes and as I understand it the guy that runs Raider worked for Hewes for some time. I compared the two boats and liked the Raider a bit better. Really all the welded boats made these days are nice and it boils down to personal preference.

If I were to buy another boat today though I would look closely at a Thunder Jet with an outboard on it in the 150HP range. I like the way the TJ looks and I also like how they sit a bit lower in the water which can be a nice feature on windy days. Whatever you get make sure it loads correctly!
