I've been on the fence about whether to buy a deep V aluminum or a center console for awhile now. I finally found a great deal and purchased one. The boat is a '98 Robalo/U.S. Marine 21' Bayhunter tunnel hull. The boat was repowered with a 2011 Optimax with only 121 hours on the motor. Mounted on a 12" Atlas jack plate. Trolling motor is a 24 volt Terrova 80 lb thrust with Ipilot,autopilot, and spot lock. Boat has a standard cranking battery, 2 Diehard AGM trolling batteries, and Minnkota 3 bank charger. It also came with a gray line bait tank and 6 beefed up drift master rod holders. T-top with electronics box already wired is another bonus. Trailer is a tandem axle with electronic brakes. I am getting dual power poles will have HDS graphs at the console and on the bow when I pick it up next week. Sorry for the big write up, but I'm pumped and can't wait to go fishing.

Nice boat Tex, should serve you well in your future plans. Deep V's are nice, but the center console will give you and your guests more room to move around and fish. Also this setup will get you places the other wont. Best of luck dude...
