These boats are pretty nice! I really like how the rod lockers open up and how they did the rear compartment. The front deck is huge!! 99 inch beam haven't ridden in one but from the video looks like a nice smooth ride. I want one!!

My own opinion, in the long run I don't see those hinges on the rod lockers lasting a long time. Especially if you fish in wind. Out here in west Texas those things might as well be sails. I'm also not a fan of the one big center rod/tackle locker in the middle. Just my opinion though

I've lived out here in west Texas for 16 years now, before that I spent 9 in Kansas. What you call wind here we called a mild breeze in Kansas.

That's what concerns me most about the boat is rod locker. The fit and finish looks great. Seems to be a large stable platform.

Rod locker design is actually pretty neat. When getting rods in or out of the boat on the trailer it makes it so much easier

Just looks like all rods will fly when try to get a rod out or as stated above become a sail in heavy winds

Similar sized door as any other rod locker. Will catch the same amount of wind weather it's horizontal or vertical
