well, I looked at a 2005 SeaArk brochure and also went to Winchester, TN to see a River Cat this week. Didn't see any other big cats, especially with oversize livewells. I did see the 40 gallon livewell, but a big blue won't fit through the hatch. (By the way, the sales guy up there worked well with me, his name is Stan.)
Again, I'm generally looking for the best value in a big cat rig. I want SAFETY for when the river is rough, I want to lock up my 7' rods, I want to leave it in the weather.
But it's hard to justify spending $5K on a bare aluminum hull (without a floor) when the same money will buy a decent running 18' bass boat with a 150 Merc on it, trailer included.
