I've been watching these boats for a while because I looked at one at a boat show and was impressed with the room on the front deck. It would fish much larger than it is. I wouldn't worry to much about options cost savings and look for a dealer stocked rig. These 17 footers move really slow and I have seen a few of them with pretty good discounts.
