Cheers dicky they sound like the boat for me, just the trouble of finding one nowour last boat was a commodore.
good boat, huge deck for it's size. very stable. did slam a bit in a head sea but just had to throttle back accordingly.
with an old carbed 2 stroke 70hp evinrude at wot gave around 29 knots, would cruise great at 18-20.
fished 3 regular sometimes 4 which was a bit tight.
beach launched easily with a roller trailer.
we had 6 good years with ours.
