I take mine to the coast about 3-5 times a year and run around alot of area. Mine is a 20ft with a 90 hp evinrude. It isn't fast or pretty, but it has served me well. I have been on some rough water in mine. It does tend to get you pretty wet. I am remodeling my boat right now, new floor, new front deck, live well, etc. i started last weekend and hope to have it done in a few weeks.
