Hi y'all-

New Member here from the middle FL Keys. This is a great site and I am glad to have found it!

I am a kayak fisherman (tarpon, reds, snoook, etc) hoping soon to get a "real" boat. Looking to get a ~23-25' pilothouse with outboard (cabin for the crew, hardtop to keep the sun at bay). Maycraft and C-Hawk seem to fit the budget best, though I am a bit concerned about the pilothouse getting too hot. Any thoughts?

Thanks alot.

Dustin

Welcome to the site Dustin.

Before I bought my last boat, I was seriously looking at hardtops, I had the same concerns...I didn't buy one.

Eyeball, After a 6 hour "sleighride" one day, I invested in a sea anchor to slow those big tarpon down!
