Ok then, here's some advice from a well worn trail.
Tournament fishing is all about the ability to maintain control in all conditions. Let that sink in a minute. They don't call off tournaments because the lakes rough. Or cold, or hot, they'll delay for fog but that's about it.
What THAT means is you gotta go. Not later, not when it's convenient, gotta go NOW.
THAT means you find the biggest, fastest, beast in rough water ride you can get your hands on.
What THAT means is you're going to zero in on a previously owned demo/team rig that has the motor you want, with the other junk you can't live without on it, it won't be new.
'*IF* you think I'm full of poo, that's fine you're not the first, and decide you want to go buy that 18' with a 150 rigged, you're going to be very unhappy in a very short amount of time. There's a lot of really quality rides on the market, take your time, take some rides, get yourself some knowledge, then come back and we can discuss details.
