I would like something that offers some storage and rod lockers as well. I fish for pretty much everything and tend to carry more tackle than I need.

Are you referring to deep V hulls as well and if so, why?


No...deep v's are fine.

Thats my problem too! I take way too much stuff with me for the "just in case" scenarios. I've got plenty of storage space for rods and extra stuff, but that kills the floor space. Maybe I need a 30' boat??? roflmao

The Sea Ark is a good boat but will rattle your teeth in rough open water and get you wet. At least the 24'er will.


+1 The Blazer Bay's are really nice boats. Lots of room in them and you can have the console moved to the front like a lot of guides like because it opens the floor space up. I love my falcon but when I upgrade these are the boats I will be looking at buying. Sea Ark makes good boats as well and if I lived around major river systems I would go Sea Ark but for lake style fishing Blazer Bay's are going to handle the rough water on them windy days much better and will keep you dry.

Well I have a couple dealers on the lookout for a 22' CC or a big deep V aluminum. Both of them said that they turn away deep V aluminum boats for trade ins because they are so hard to sell around here.

If you arent afraid of used and you want good rough water performance go with a fiberglass cc. If you want ok rough water but the ability to run 8" then you need a tunnel hulled tin boat like mine. Ive got a 2172 alumacraft. By ok rough water I mean youe gonna get some spray and it will be rough but the boat will handle it. If your definition of shallow is 1-2 feet then fiberglass is fine and prob what you want. Dont be afraid to go for a drive to find a good deal.

Just bought my wife a vehicle and got my truck back from her. The only thing preventing me from buying a boat is finding the right one.

Disregard. I just checked your website and answered the question myself.

I like Deep V Aluminums - some get you wet , some don't. Mine does on Windy days but handles rough water fine - it's 19'6". I don't like the 17 footers much. I'd like a 22 footer myself if I had the means. My boat has to be a "everything boat" Tubing n Cruising in summer for Grankids and fishing rest of year. My boat will run in 1.5' on motor (tilted up - no jackplate) and 1' on trolling motor

My boat in background - the Windsheild is the worst part- too small, angles back too much and I wish it was 1 - 1.5 foot further up to the front. It can take on a Ton of water and still float high and ride fine. My Grandauhgter stuck the plug in while in my driveway when we got a lot of rain last spring and get to lake I figured she put it in when we got there ( that's her job while I undo straps n such at ramp). We ran all day and couldn't tell a difference till I pulled out of lake and pulled plug- WOW- water ran out for solid 5 minutes!
