    Ok, sound off!

    Which is better , the Grady-White's or the Skipjack's?

    Be sure to include your reasons for picking one or the other...

    Both are awesome boats. I have owned both. I currently have a skipjack "ultimate fishing machine"! Both are very solid boats. Main difference to look at is if u want an inboard (skipjack) or outboards (grady). My 2 cents!

    Becareful with some of the Grady's that had a Euro style transom because they had issues with water intrusion which lead to rotting.

    I've owned 4 gradys....been on a few skipjacks way offshore....I'd go for the skipjack

    probably more sunk gradys per capita than skipjacks I would bet, and even more with rotted out transoms and bad fuel tanks....but I still think overall GW are a great boat. then again my first 17ft boston whaler did it all but I was much younger then and took crazy chances with it.

    my dad has a 1987 GW 23ft gulfstream and never had any problems with it and it is like new, so alot if it depends on pior maintenance also
