That’s a trick question. A 21’ of just about any brand will out ride a 18-19’ of any brand. But a 21’ with a 200 is way under powered. I need to know prices before I pick one.
One of the roughest rides I ever had in my life was in a 20' Skeeter (could have just been the driver). I still say a 21' Skeeter would out ride the other 2 though. I bet top end the other 2 will out run that 200 though even though the other 2 aint built for speed to begin with.
Champion is 12,000
Skeeter is 7500
Charger is 7900
I don't fish big tournaments and I also don't fish big lakes except when I go to Rayburn, but I stay close to the areas I know so speed is not a real big issue. I mostly fish the week day tournaments and then some local club trails. If I ever did decide to go into big tournament trail I would be a co-angler so boat is out of question then... I'm kinda on a budget with our first kid due in June, so I am trying to get me something to get me by the next 5 years but also reliable if you know what I mean.
The main thing I want is something with a nice size platform and also won't get blown around in the wind.
Yes, I will definitely check out the transoms and compression test will be done.
