Default Skeeter Sx210 vs Sx2250 inshore/offshore

Hello everyone,
I am new to this site and new to boating. I am in the market for a bay/bass boat yet with a family spin. I am looking hard between the Skeeter SX210 and SX2250. My question is how far can I get offshore on these boats? The SX210 comes with a Yamaha 150 and the SX 2250 comes with a Yamaha 200 at LMC Marine that has the best prices. I would love the SX230 but cannot afford it dressed up at this time. I plan to fish inshore and the Texas lakes, but would like to venture out to the oil platforms or rigs once I am comfortably trained on the boat. Any advice or suggestions are welcomed.

The 2250 will be significantly better for any kind of rough water or offshore use.

How far offshore are the platforms/rigs you are talking about? I would not plan to take a 21-22 BAY BOAT more than 10 miles offshore as a regular planned activity. All it takes is one line of thunderstorms to have you crapping your pants.

Thank you for your responses! My first choice is the SX 2250 as the family spin also (if Mamma lets me spend the extra bucks), I do not plan any or regular trips offshore. I was thinking no more than 10-12 miles out to the oil platforms from Port A, Port Mansfield, Rockport, and Corpus Christi area (they may be closer than that but I am not too sure), maybe I should say near shore and inshore. I will be looking to fish around the islands and shallows, and go as deep as I can for any bigger fish. Now, with your advice I will definitely stay well within the 10 mile range! The SX 2250 is a little heavier and deeper boat but has a higher draft (then adding weight because the listed draft is most likely minimum weight), I hope I can get into the flats enough for some good trout and red fish? I pray never to get caught in a thunderstorm in any depth of water "onewolf" because I will probably be crapping my pants anyway, Lol! Stay safe folks and happy boating/fishing!

I floated my 2250s in less than 2 ft of water all the time with plenty or room to spare. I don't need to push much more than that if I still want a solid machine to get me offshore in comfort on nice days. 2250 is a fantastic boat.
