I'm looking to get a new boat, and I wanted to throw up a quick thread to see what y'all think. OK, here's what I've got: a 2009 Carolina Skiff 238DLV with a 2009 Suzuki DF150 four-stroke and a 2009 RKAWV Roadking tandem-axle trailer. I've added a MinnKota 70AP/PD trolling motor and a Humminbird 787C depth finder with GPS (external antenna). I'm also in the middle of configuring my rod holders. The only thing I'm sure of is that I'm going with Driftmasters (made in Manning SC, USA. Only the best....). I've just got to figure out how many, which style, etc etc.... Thanks to my brothers here in South Carolina, I've become a drifting monster, and I've tried to outfit this boat as best as I could going on their suggestions and advice. I just hope it'll turn out to be what I'm dreaming about.....a Catsmacker's Dream, and people will want to fish with me. Now I know that some of you might be wondering what I'm wanting with a 23ft boat. I'm a big guy (6'3" 305lbs) and I need stretching out room. Plus, with the wife and kids, I'm gonna need a bigger boat, and I've got buddies and they've got "stuff".....I'm gonna need the room. I usually carry 6 or 8 cat rods with me and 2 bait rods, two tackle boxes, and two or three coolers. I know, that's a lot of stuff, but I've slimmed it down a lot. I used to carry more, if you can believe that.... And I've got to have the boat in case the Good Lord decides to smile upon me that day and lets me load the boat with big fish. :smile2: I'm wondering what you guys think. I can take criticism, but do better with enthusiasm. :wink: Y'all let me know. I'm itchin' to find out what y'alls thoughts are. Thanks in advance.
