Default Competition 31 owners: likes / dislikes

Gonna make a run to Hialeah next week to the factory to talk to Manny and possibly get in line for a Competition 31. Would like to hear owners thoughts on the boat. Building a new boat is foreign territory so Id also like to hear any Competition owners thoughts on the build process, communication, timeliness, etc...

Responded to you PM earlier but overall been happy with my 25 and should be up in the very near future to start my 31. Hope your trip to Competition goes good next week and keep us posted.

Owned a 25 for about 5 years, manny was great to deal with and knew all his boats by memory. I would get another one without second thought.

Currently own a 25 and fish a 31 also. Love the boats and the layout. The 31 with twin 300 yamaha’s is the perfect combination.

Sounds like the consensus is pretty good overall, I’ve never heard anything bad about the boats or Manny in general. Is there anything that you guys don’t like about the boats or anything you guys would do different the next time around?

Nothing comes to mind. The boat is well built and did everything we asked of it. Plenty of fuel, good access to all mechanical equipment. No stress cracks, wiring was well done. If you live bait get leaning post livewell , the transom one is a better trash can than livewell, it's just to small.
