Likes: Big heavy boat,
rides great and dry in heavy chop. Has a front deck you could land
a small plane on :), and land a helicopter on the back deck ;).
Back deck is 4'6" by 6'9" (I think, if not bigger). Center
console style. It looks modern to be 12 years old. Chicks
dig it ;).
Can fish all day out of it without getting tired. Waves from other
boats don't throw you around while fishing.
Dislikes: Big Heavy Boat :). Slower than most, even with
the 225. A lot of wasted space, not great on the storage
layout. Livewell lids are big, but the openings to the livewell is
relatively small, I guess this helps keep the smallmouth in the livewell
when you go to add another, so strike that one ;). Center console
design. Take note, you guys who think it is the latest fad, to own
a center console Allison, etc. If you fish a lot by yourself,
don't get a center console.
You have to use the trolling motor to get to the dock, unless you want
to mar your boat's finish up.
All in all, I am very satisfied with this boat. It is a very
stable platform, easy to drive and the chicks love it (cause they can
lay out while I fish), even the old times get a kick out of its styling.
Likes: Plenty of deck fore and aft and enough
freeboard to keep items from falling overboard.
Value: plenty of creature comforts found on the really pricey rigs like
lighted livewells and lockers, gas assist lid supports, onboard DualPro
w/thru-hull receptacle, sliding driver's seat, tilt wheel. Ample
storage. Ride is great in the rough stuff and feels secure because
the buckets sit low in deck. I'd buy another one; unfortunately
Ebbtide discontinued the line.
Dislikes: My only concern is resale value since the line has been
discontinued. Too bad, because Ebbtide really had a great thing
going. Guess I'll just keep here forever since I don't have any

Like: That there is plenty of floor space, 4
isolated seats, full windshield from cold/rain, good fishing decks with
enough lip to keep things from sliding out. Plus the 2 extra long
front seats for stretching out while cruising with the family.
Dislike: I would like to have a longer/faster model, since
it's a little rough in open water. Other than that, it's perfect
