I don’t see them in saltwater much in Louisiana but when we went to Ft Myers last summer there were pontoon boats all over the place and most were rentals. I doubt they would let just anyone rent...

there is no 24’ bay boat that will be comfortable in 2-3’ chop. It will get you out of a pickle and back home safe in some pretty nasty conditions but that’s it. If you really want to not slow down...

46”H is good on some boats but I needed a 54” so you’ll need to make sure you can walk under the bimin if you so wish to. Measure the depth of the sides and add that to the bimini height to make sure...

A T-top is useless on an 18’ boat for both fishing and pleasure. Why ruin a perfectly good boat?

Used boat prices are skyrocketing right now. I’ve seen tons of ads for used boats that were close to or even a above cost of a new boat. Maybe we’re looking in two very different places?

With that much setback I can’t imagine it’s from the pick up. What about the prop? Is it the proper size? I would think an oversized prop could pull more air down?

I’ll never use gulp just because they’re slimy and stink. Regular soft plastics are just as effective and cost way less. Problem solved.

Sounds like you just need to avoid shallow areas when it’s rough. How high is your motor mounted?
A jp will help but will ventilate in chop and hard turns when all the way up.
