    The only thing I notice is the thickness of the aluminum, most boats are using .100 aluminum now, it is probably thick enough. Is it a rivited boat or all welded. I went with Triton because they are .100 and all welded. That one may be but I have never looked into that aspect of it.

    as long as he aint banging rocks etc i feel he should be fine with it. i would also recomend maybe looking at the trackers i believe they are useing the same thing infact from my research the fisher are basicly a tracker with a few less bells and whistles. if you researc thier site you will find where they ask you if you order a brochure if you want to recieve info from tracker on thier events.

    Thanks for the input guys. I did get in touch with the salesman and the boad has a small dent in the hull but from the pics he sent it does'nt look too bad. Although i have to admit, it don't seem like he is in any kind of hurry to sell the darn thing. Takes forever to get an email back from him on any inquiry. I may just call back down there and ask for a different salesman.
