| | Re: Sea Chaser 2600-Carolina skiff
I just sold my 24'CC Seachaser. Not the 26, but similar. I really liked my boat. We have been 70 miles out on overnighters on many occasions. My partner is going to Thunderhorse tomm in the same boat. The little less deadrise hurt a little in rough seas. Just slowed down a kept going. I am a fair weather fisherman, so did not matter that much. The little less deadrise will gain speed and MPG. The 26' is MUCH bigger than my 24'. That boat can handle more sea than you can fish in. It will not ride as good as a 24.5 degree boat in 3-4' seas, but those boats do not ride great in those seas either. If you plan on fishing in rough seas all the time, get a Glacier Bay. Otherwise the Seachaser will work fine at much less cost and better fuel economy. BTW, the only reason I sold my Seachaser is because I had a partner and I am moving my fishing location.
