    Gentlemen,
    I finally pulled the trigger on my first boat. Today I ordered a 20' Sea Ark V-cat with a 150 HP E-tec on a McClain Aluminum trailer. Now I just have to wait the 4 to 6 weeks for it to arrive. I want to personally thank all of the members of this board for all their helpful posts. The steady stream of candid and useful information has been greatly appreciated.:roll_eyes:

    Congrats on your NEW boat. SeaArk makes a good one! Arguably the BEST Catfish Boat out there.

    Wow, now that is a nice rig. I am sure you are going to be getting really anxious to go fishing up until the day that it arrives. Congrats!

    Robbie sounds like a nice boat and 4 to 6 weeks is perfect, I can clear my schedule by then and help you break that new boat in, lol, good luck fishing in that fine piece of equipment.

    Kenny,
    If your down southeast Texas way maybe you can stop by and show me how run this thing. It is after all my first boat. It's only been a few days but I'm already chomping at the bit. I can't wait until it gets here.

    Congrats Rob on the new rig. From all the positive posts on Sea Ark boats, I believe you made an excellent choice in your investment. Please post some pics of her when you have the chance. GOOD LUCK AND GOOD FISHING!!:wink:
