I want something that fits in garage, most of the lakes I fish on dont require big boat. I have been pleased with my 520 but I'm not mad enough to go running all over the place anymore. I may even look at 18.5 stuff with 200.

I had a 519 several years ago and it was a good boat. Still fished as well as a 520 just a little wetter and rougher on windy days. And with a 225 it was a rocket.

Phoenix 919XP is an option. Have never heard a bad thing about them and they are a rocket ship when properly dialed in.

My old partner has one and yes, it's real fast. And a good stable fishing boat.

Personally, it would just be a decision between that and the Caracal for me if I were in that market.

If you are looking at used boats, the Legend Alpha 199 fits. Mine was a rocket ship with that 225 on it.

Just so happen to have one of those for sale Wawi! Tried to pm you but it's full. Check out the Classifieds under trading posts/swap section and take a look at my 199. How much room do you have in your garage?

The Caracal is a wide body deck, they are nice and have that BassCat smooth dry ride

Buddy used to have a 199 Legend that was good rig also
