The only info I have is that a new one parked at the dock beside us before the Golden Isles Kinfish classic was reported to be taking on water and in need of assistance on the first day.... I think he made it back to the dock OK Other than that, I do not know a thing...

Its the Mono Hull division of Pro Sports Boats. Their "cats" are under the Pro sports name. and the mono Hulls are now Sea quest.

I looked at a 24 here in Savannah. Looks like a price point, lower tier boat in my opinion. Major sidewall flex on the liner. Cheap hardware. Rigging was not very good. I didnt think much more of the Pro Sports when they were out either.

I think you can probably do better for the same money.

The boat in the King fish classic did not sink. Had water coming into boat from live well into the bilge area. Water hit the circuit breaker and killed power to electtronics. Owner was unaware of the reset switch on circuit breaker. The dealers came all the way down from Savannah to Brunswick to fix the boat and check everything for the guy, no questions asked. he fished the tournament on Saturday without incident. The boat has a 25 degree deadrise and runs great in rough seas. If you can find another boat with twin 150 suzukis on it and a ten year hull warranty with t-top and tandem aluminum trailer for around $48,000, then go buy it. Boat runs out at 50 mph with this motor setup. As far as sidewall flex, I havent noticed that, because I sell them and I was at the Kingfish classic to see it all. Some people must justify their purchases by degrading other peoples rigs. Pretty Low Rent in my opinion. If you care to respond 606zpx, give us a call at 912-961-5601 and ask for Robert.

I would love to put money down on a run offshore with that 22 Mckee in some 2-4 footers and see which boat does what. What do you think? Is thata 10-4, Cap? Give me a call when ready to run, because this is not BS. I'll run it today or tommorow or whenever. You got the shop number and some money and we can make it happen.

I seem to think they used to be owned by Johnson / Evinrude years ago. They were "kind of" popular for a while, then I never saw them again. By the way, I had the same general opinion of them. Price is not always the most important detail in picking a boat, especially an OFFSHORE boat. Look for solid construction, thru-bolted hardware, good finish (I find it typically shows pride of construction) and most importantly, see if the boat is seaworthy. Try it out. If you like it, then it's a great boat. That's why there's so many brands out there. By the way Rob, don't take it so personally. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. Also, don't forget the tale of the Tortoise and the Hare, except in this case, the loser may never make it back to shore. Not all that impressed with your challenge. As a boat salesperson, you may want to consider educating others about your product instead of "challenging" them to put there boat side-by-side with yours or poo-pooing others' opinions. That is the beauty of this site ... free information from many sources.

You are thinking of Quest boats. Quest was an OMC brand built sometime in the 80s and early 90s?
Sea Quest are renamed Pro Sports. Like 606 said, lower end of the "mid-tier" spectrum.
Robert315, are you actually comparing a Sea Quest/Pro Sport to a McKee Craft?

Good lord Robert, I'll take your word for it....they are great boats! Look...instead of taking this so personally lay out what makes this boat great other than price and deadrise. Please list out the particulars that make the boat a good value and I might change my mind (assuming you actually care what I think which I do not know why you would). I do have to say that the price is right and if you want to get into that size boat there isnt much competition out there in that price range short of buying used.

Regarding my Mckee....it definitely is not a perfect boat. For example, I wish the undersides of the hatches were fully finished with gelcoat and I wish the
anchor locker was a bit bigger. I could think of a few other things I would change as well. There have been a few folks out there who have trashed Mckee's but I dont take it personally. As the saying goes opinions are like @ssholes, everybody has one.

On the boat that was a the SKA tournament was the circuit breaker in the bilge which is why water came in contact with it? Also, why did Pro Sports change their name to SeaQuest?

I see that you sell Seachaser as well at your dealership. I think the 2400 Seachaser is a great boat for the dollar and is made tough. Sure there are some detail items that may not be "pretty" but I think it is a very good boat. Well paired with a 250 or twins. Given the choice between the SeaQuest and the Seachaser I would go with the latter. I see your dealership also has SeaFox boats but I havent really looked at them much, just read what others have had to say.
