I would jump on a 24' frontier in a heartbeat.

I do like Bluewave boats, but sounds like QC has been a real issue. Also, their warranty is questionable on buy used guide boats, which most of the used bluewave's available are 1-2 year old guide boats.

I am leaning towards the Bullsbay 2200 and I am going to check out the new Seapro boats.

I have taken a look at some used boats, a couple of maybes out there. I still have a charter scheduled for the 8th, and I am working on credit for a another, so I have some time and still get some fishing in.

I would like a 24' boat, but a 22' boat will do just fine for years to come.

I've got a 2nd year guide boat trade in...had it for over 2 years. No issues with build quality except one hatch in the deck in front of the console that takes a lot of force when stepping down from the front deck...more flex than I like so I plan on a little surgery on it this winter. Other than that it is a great boat. I know I have some warranty left on the Yammy 250 but I did not ask about the hull/components. If you go through the boat thoroughly before you buy you should be able to spot any real problems. I am hypercritical when it comes to my boats and the PB2400 really has satisfied me thus far.

MREX,


I by no means am saying anything bad about other boats. Frontier, Blackjack, Bluewave, Blazer, Pathfinder are all great boats.


And I AM NOT ranking Skeeter above them either, but for my needs, and overall average, Im telling you, the new 210 SX is amazing.


SKeeter finally got rid of that ugly Double S inlay on the sides of the boat, and that ugly pin striping and double tone colors. They have a new design team that is using the ISLA MORADA Florida style coloring concepts and the new hull rides like a dream.


AGAIN, SKEETER is not the only boat I would buy, but Im just giving my opinion, but my opinion isn't worth much Im sure.


AND NO, I DO NOT WORK FOR SKEETER.. LOL


Im a simple Industrial Engineer. What do I know. LOL

have become a Skeeter Fan. If I had to buy today it would be a Skeeter. But still have a few more to go check out and really in no big hurry. Blackjack is nice but it is priced out same as a 24 ft boat. Trying to get a test ride set up on a pathfinder.

Those Epics are about the ugliest boat I ever saw. I hate boats with that upswept front half.

Lol.

Kind of like the Blackjack looks like someone had a head on collision with a boat ramp and didn't want to repair the front end

If you cant look at a epic bay boat in person and see the glaring qc issues then you need to set a budget and let someone else pick a bay boat for you who has an idea of what they are looking at.

I in fact did own a N I N J A TURTLE GREEN EPIC>


I DRANK THE KOOLAID>


I can tell you, even after a lawsuit with EPIC.




THEY ARE CRAP. COMPLETE CRAP. and the company president, KURT is a hack business man.


He was FIRED from LARSON CO, the Largest boat Incorporation in the US. LARSON owns many many other boat companies. I believe to include Ranger, Stratos, and a few Bay boat companies
