What can anyone tell me about seastrike boats?. The 220b model in particular?

Very nice boats. The fit and finish is very good and the company has been around a long time. The only drawback is its a 17 degree hull. It may not ride as nice as some other boats with deeper Vs

On the other hand, the boat is one of the smallest available on the market with a full enclosed transom and bracket-mounted engine. Safe and secure for kids in the stern of the boat; plenty of cockpit space; and the full platform makes a nice jump-off point for water sports.

Although the company has been in business for many years, the present owners are new to boat manufacturing and they recently relocated to a new (to them) plant facility on the opposite end of Florida. Hopefully, many of their skilled workforce made the move with them. I will be interested to hear how you like your sea trial.

i had a 2000 205 for a couple of years - it was a great boat for nearshore fly fishing but a little light for long runs in chop - could have been the 17 degree hull too. seemed pretty well made for the price (hatch screws tended to come loose) and ran well with a honda 130 strk at only 1800lbs hull weight (very efficient boat). as mentioned above, the ownership did change in last few years and i think the new guys had plans to build bigger boats but have since scratched them as there are only a few sizes available now on the web site (they seem to have discontinued some of the smaller ones too?). i bet you can get a great deal on a used hull since not many folks seem to have heard of them (i sold mine for 50% of it's purchase price with 3 yrs and 170hrs on it... not great resale)
