Anyone have a experience with this line of boats. In particular I am looking at "moving up" from a 14ft lund s14 (narrow-shallow). I'm looking for better stability and a little more freeboard in the rear. my motor (4 stroke) and I leave only a few inches of draft in the rear. I'd appreciate any info.

A friend of mine has one. I've hunted next to him, but I have not been inside the boat myself. He likes the boat, and has a Beavertail Blind with it.

If you want to hunt more than 2 people you really need to max out the hp, which is 25hp. It is a heavy, good sized boat. Seemed very stable that will handle some rougher water with ease. He tried out a couple 15hp motors ( 2-stroke and 4-stroke) and it struggled.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
