No offense taken Matt.
The General Marine and Duffy are excellent boats and are certainly great looking. They are bigger and have more freeboard than the RF. Another consideration is the RF is more trailerable with a 8'6" beam vs a 9'6" beam.
I think the RF looks better in a Wheel House configuration myself. On the other hand it is much more user friendly for us in a sedan crusier configuration.
Take a look at this RF that was customized/rigged/completed by a dealer in WA state.
They also modified the cabin a bit with moving the frig adding a heating system etc.
They did a sweet job on an overhead console (this is a picture from sedan crusier but they did the same to the Wheel House model they have sold)......This could be a future project for me.
I really like the Duffy 31. Believe me there are always a few times a year that I wished we had a bigger boat but then I would compromise the trailerablity factor. Stinkin boats are always a compromise
Hope you had a great holiday season. Say "Hi" to Laurie from Karen and I
The Wheel House RF is about as fishy as the Rosborough gets. The Canadian Department of Fisheries & Oceans and the Canadian Coastguard uses this model for patrols.
