    I seen it up close, even had a chance to put it on the water at hillsdale lake. It is 24ft with a 102" beam and a fully welded .125 hull and has alot of storage, there is two storage compartments and a 9' lockable rod compartment in the front deck with a walk through windshield and enough room in the cockpit area for 4 pedestal seats and the rear deck has a 125 gallon insulated livewell with two 750 gpm pumps and there is a fifty gallon gas tank and two very large storage compartments, one on each side of the fuel tank compartment. there is also a 70 psi washdown pump, am-fm-cd player, and the paint job is camo
    All-welded modified-vee jon boat hull
    Floor - welded-in aluminum floor and decks
    the area under the floor is foam filled.
    Longitudinal ribs 6063 alloy
    Transom - all aluminum

    The ride was very smooth in some rough water and was able to make some sharp turns at speed without blowing out. and it gets on plane instantly .
    I will get some pics posted when possible.
    This looks to be the ultimate cat boat,it has the much needed storage and a live well that can handle 250 lbs of fish and more than enough room to be comfortable.

    The only thing I have seen was at Cooks Boat&Motors at Troy,Mo. Hate to say it but it's rather pretty. Now if DH had that pink and white boat to go with his pink rod he would really be the talk of the town. Darrell have you seen it yet?

    It's sitting out in front of his showroom.

    I was guessing maybe there was an X in the brand name?

    Dang, Kirk's already ridden in it...

    I don't get to go till this coming weekend. John's pretty excited about it, but I'm kind of surprised he only put a 200 on it.
