RE: VIP BaY Stealth
You have chosen the right boat from the wrong company. I hate to say that because I am from Louisiana and the Bay Stealth is built in Louisiana. The model you mentioned has been their best boat yet; however, in general, the Bay Stealth is a very wet ride (ask Capt Brandon on this site). A lot of Louisiana charter captains used to fish out of them, but you don't see them as the boat of choice any more. You can look at the entry of the Bay Stealth models and see that they will be wet. The bay stealth is a nice looking boat and well laid out, but the wet ride, lower resale value and relatively high cost make them a fourth or fifth choice behind Sea Pro, Sea Hunt, Pathfinder and Cape Horn (in no particular order). If you are looking for more info on the Bay Stealth, you might want to check out a Louisiana fishing site called Rodnreel.com. You can search old posts regarding the Bay Stealth and you should find some interesting info. In addition to the wet ride, I have also heard that they have a problem with hatches coming loose. Best of luck to you.
