I would get a used Prowler or Worldcat before I took a chance on the twin V. Hopefully they are now better quality but why chance it.

I have the 36V 84”and love it. It holds great in all seas I have been out in. The 72 seems to be adequate in most cases and will be less expensive. I would say if you plan to fish in heavy current...

I wish I liked the grass fed beef as I think it is more natural for the cattle to graze and eat grass. For me the grass fed tastes off and I love the fat in grain fed beef.

The ride in 2 ft seas is like butter. I would anticipate it will ride better than your Sportscraft in anything under 3’. The 28 will be awesome but I think it is much more offshore oriented and will...

It is the perfect boat for what you want to do. You will need 200’s to get a 40 mph cruise. It floats in less than a foot and with a trolling motor is a great inshore boat. Going offshore in...

Go to the nearest large academic institution for a second opinion. First question for any surgeon should be how many of these have you completed in the last 12 months. If less than 50 then move on.

Just get one 36V lithium battery and the stealth dc charger. Way easier and only need space for one group 31 battery. Mine is a 60AH and my trolling motor has never run out of juice.

I would go with 65lb braid in any color. I prefer dark green. No need for mono topshot just use the appropriate sized fluoro leader for what you are fishing for.

27 Americat may be a good compromise. Good economy and decent speed. Prowler 31 may be slightly too large for what you are looking to do. Of course Freeman 29 would be perfect but good luck.
