I have buddy that bought a new one in June of last year, nice boat, I like the Seadeck material instead of carpet. He called me Sunday night, he went fishing and found about 6 inches of water in the bottom of the boat during his trip. He trailered it and found the weld at the front where the semi v started is broke and separated allowing water to enter. He does not recall ever hitting anything but thinks beaching the boat on the bank at his lake house may have caused the issue.

I call BS on this, I have beached my fiberglass boat on shore for years and never had an issue. I thought with an aluminum boat this would never be an issue but his had to be re welded.

Jut an FYI.

If you want a tin boat look at Uncle J customs, they will be building my duck hunting boat next year.

I have a 2020 X19 Pro with a 200 SHO. Love the boat and its build quality. Great storage and boxes stay dry. The ride is really nice and cuts waves great. Doesn't have the aluminum boat "slap" that most have. The livewells keep fish alive well, but are smaller than I would like. The SeaDeck is definitely a game changer over carpet. I fish barefoot a lot and this has changed my expectations for fishing in the summer.

Doug you can come crawl Bart if you want, I can't speak to the structure of the new ones but I can tell you that on Bart all of the issues with flex and structure in the 2000-2010 ish boats has been addressed and corrected. It is strong where it needs to be and balanced. Fishes Rides and Handles exactly the same as my Pantera Classics I had although not as fast top end.


I would turn down a straight up trade offer for a Bran New one
