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.

      I've seen a lot of people dragging raps for "crappies" before the opener

      Go down to MG and they will steer you in the right direction.  I know that  different release is used for braid.

      Sorry if I was didn't make myself clear.   What I meant was can  a place like the landing make a living from the people who come to the higher end resorts and want to go out to eat?     Clearly Ludlow's has a target market and does very well with it.  Whether that same target market can sustain the landing is another question.   Seems like maybe not...     I still wonder why they don't put the menu online.... In this day and age,  I am used to checking out a place online before walking in the door.

      I've never used boards, what are the best boards to use with braid? I'll be using them on Superior and for eyes inland... I've heard the offshore ones need their clips upgraded to use with braid.
