I was looking at them last year. I haven't fished from one, but I looked at one at a dealer. It was the center console design. Lots of room! The thing I didn't like, was that the console set way too far to the back of the boat. Also, it has a pretty good sized rear deck which I didn't like, but that was due to the huge livewell. Definitely a workable catfish boat, just not what I was looking for. You can get the 2096 without the rear deck or livewell and it really opens up the floor plan. I was quoted boat and trailer for $9500 for the stripped down model. Add a 90 hp outboard and it goes up about 5 or 6 grand. You can get the Outlander model for right around 20 with a 115. The Outlander is what I was really interested in. Take a good look at them. I think I might like the Outlander better than the Sea Ark Pro Cat.
