    i just got back from paducah ky. where steve brown is showing the new sea-ark catfishing boat. all i can say is I WANT IT. this thing is awsome. you have to see it. steve worked with sea-ark for three yrs. you can tell a catfisherman made the plans for this boat. eric will be posting the pics. this weekend. if your thinking about getting a new boat, you should check this boat out, if you cant make the boat shows, look here for the pics. you wont belive your eyes. you have never seen a sea-ark that looks anything like this.

    well i like my 22 ft sea ark finally got it all riged up like we wanted called my dad about the new one we went in together on the 22 fter the 24 foot new 1 wont fit in the shop be too long and i dont want to lose 2 feet of floor space getting a 20 fter . i got my steering console all the way to the front deck i got like 8 1/2 feet from the drivers seat to the back live well i put in 4 big custom made seats in the midle to back of the boat i can move the seats in and out easily with just 2 people its allmost like a pontoon. the 15 degree would be a better ride tho. and i like the sound of the shad well up front with the self draining deck that would be sweet!!! if they come out with a 22 fter may think hard on it. :wink:

    Sounds like an interesting setup, scott. You have any pictures of your boat's interior?

    the tourney tank is 80 gal. the neat thing about it is that it is all pre wired & you can take it out when your not tourney fishing. and you will never know it was in there, because the hook ups are under the deck. the boat has a 225 on it, steve said it will run about 50-55 mph loaded. plus it will be a very nice ride.

    Wow, that sure sounds great!! For those of you who will be upgrading, feel free to donate your old, used 20 footers to me, LOL :smile2:

    I went to the boat show down in Memphis yesterday. They had a few Sea Ark's that looked like great catfish boats, although nothing catfish specific.

    <sigh> I'll have to be content with my 16' starcraft for a while.
