I picked this 21 foot Starcraft up this weekend. The inside was really tore up so It made the boat cheap. I didnt want nothing nice for what we do. The 85 horse Merc runs real good. I plan to build some rod holders and install a live well and bait tank. This thing is a big step up from my 1961 16 footer. Vehicle Water transportation Boat Speedboat Boat trailer

Looks good Ryan. With a little work you will have and nice cat boat there.

21 footer will give you plenty of room to fight the BIG ones.
