    We had several pleasant conversations. Not sure if he has made a decision yet but it won't be mine because mine has a new home in Washington State.

    New Boat Purchase - Questions RE: Top, Troll & Bait

    Here’s the link. You won’t find a better cared for “used boat”. Anyone that knows Steve or has fished with him can attest to how anal he is with his gear....probably not even a water spot on it. And by the term “used” doesn’t do it justice as he hasn’t had it long enough to use it. I think if any of us were truly in the market right now for what you described, this boat would be on the top of the list

    Re: New Boat Purchase - Questions RE: Top, Troll & Bait

    Here's my two cents; I have a 21' Seahawk with a hardtop...The boat was used and rigged when I bought it. Got a good deal on it as rigged, but

    1) I have my hardtop removed; relatively easy on off, but it takes three guys and a place to keep it. I only put it on when I'm consistently fishing in weather. Otherwise, it's top off with good rain gear on. Boat is much easier to cover with it off. The hard top itself has some wonderful lighting features. If I had a choice I would choose canvas top

    2) My boat has linked steering. It's okay, but TR-1 would be the way to go, hands down.

    3) Boat was equipped with Cannon down riggers. My previous boat had Scotty. In my opinion Scotty is the only way to go.

    4) No opinion on live well

    Along with others, I agree--The Seahawk on the boat classified board is a great deal, ready to go!

    Linestretcher has the best one of the North River class that I have been on so far. It is loaded to the max with all kinds of goodies. Steve has done well with it, and I had the priviledge of being on it at Eagle Lake with him and Val Aubery. What a treat to a couple of great weeks of fishing......Jetspray

    Spot on with the bracket. I fish 75% in the ocean and never had wave/swell spray over the transom even in as much as 7' swells.

    Either top is good; however, it'll be hotter under an aluminum hardtop during temps above 95°. I currently have a canvas top on my 23.5Duckworth.
