Fishing Magazine. By ddubs3November 1, in This Old Boat. So I just totaled the Tracker Targa 18WT that we had for the past four years and it is time for a new boat. I don't want another Tracker because I feel the platform in back really cuts down on soja meri gudiya room and makes it hard for older guys to work the rods and fight fish.
We also had a terrible experience with the marina we bought the boat from and had nothing but problems with the trailer Right now we are considering three different manufacturers and are looking for input and experiences.

Been goofin' off looking at boats in the ' range, cuddy with twins. Tags: None. Rob B. Welcome to the club of break out another thousand. They are all great boats, just the finish work gets better with each boat. And the price goes up too. A good used Wooldridge Supersport Pilothouse would be the best option, but they are very hard to come by. Another very nice looking boat for the money is the new Riverhawk. Dewey's has one in the lot and it's played out really nice.
Might be worth checking out.

Either way, most of the bigger boats all have close to the same dead rise and ride really well in the big water. Some better than others but close to the same. Weight, ride, length, creature comforts are all directly related to price. The heavier the boat "North River" the better the ride in some respects. But it gets more expensive on your trips. It's a balancing game i guess. Hewescraft is a great boat. Laid out nice but the finish work just isn't there compared to others.
Weldcraft is close to the same boat, but has abetter finish. Both North River are great boats. Nice heavy very seaworthy boats that will last you for years.
Hey any boat will last you years, but once you start looking and climbing anthem you will see the quality differences.The contents of the Alaska Outdoors Supersite forums are viewable by anyone, and may be read by clicking the forum headings below.Breaking in our new boat: 2019 Duckworth 28 Offshore in San Francisco, CA

The other thing about the Hewes is that there are so many of them, and so many people familiar with them that they sell quickly when priced right.Forums New posts Classifieds Gallery Search forums.
First post as I am a newbie to the PNW. I have been looking at new boats and since we just moved here from the Midwest I have a lot to learn. By doing some research and attending the boat show I have narrowed my search to a 26ft offshore Weldcraft or Duckworth. I plan on equipping the boat with twin or 's full cutty with stand up head and galley Wife package. I have test drove a Weldcraft and was impressed with the ride. Here is my question. What is the differance between these two boats?
All I can really tell is 3 windshield vs 2. I am open to any suggestions as to extra options to consider, etc.
This will be my first saltwater boat.Privacy Terms. Skip to content. Search Advanced search. Quick links. Sponsored by Life Proof Boats. You gotta figure out what you wanna use it for, length of boat, type of boat open tiller vs windshield and how much you can afford Their are other options just then those you mentioned -Hewescraft -Alumaweld -North River -Weldcraft -Boulton -Raider -Duckworth -Custom Weld You just have to figure out what model of a boat you want and how much you want to spend.
All of these boat manufacturers have a lot to offer in terms of lineup and even customization, and their are good deals out there. Extended transom is awesome, it gives you a lot more room in your boat. Seattle Boat Show would be an awesome place to go look at some boats. It's going on now until the 1st of February.
Their will be a lot of models and manufacturers there, so go take a look and compare em all. Also, they'll advertise a lot of the boats at shows like this with smaller motors so the cost on the sticker is low, but often times these motors make the boat pretty gutless when you get a full load of people and gear out on the water For example they'll put a on a North River Seahawk to make the cost look a lot better to potential boat buyers.
But you would be much better off going with a hp motor Nothings worse then an underpowered boat Out of all the lists maybe 1 but not for me:cheers: One mans dream boat:cyclops: is anothers bottom feeder:colors: but today is the time to spank a sweet deal:cheers: PM me anytime if you want big blue, riversbigger lakes I have a list of studs who work to the limits of the Industry which is changing very fast and its deals on wheels and many going south soon!
Buyer beware but a guy with vision could steal tubs as we speak until the Industry heals or falls. LOL Lean on Hp and style:colors:.

My Thunderjet has a v8 with a pump and loaded with 4 guys and gear it is definitley slower,less responsive and takes that little longer to plain.
Alumaweld always seemed to shove a 90hp motor on their lowest priced models. When i was looking to buy a few years back. Personally i really like Northriver center console 21'. I wish my TJ was 21' not 19'.Duckworth Welded Aluminum Boats I spent over five years riding in various boats and found the Duckworth to be the best by far.
