I have been fishing the Qualifier 105 for 15 years. It now looks as if I have to find another boat. I have been looking( reading ) about the Red Rooster, the Excel, and the American Angler, as well as the Independence and Intrepid. Since I am in southern Utah, and unable to go visit the boats, I am looking to the anglers on this board to give me their input (good or Bad) on what are the good and bad points of the above mentioned boats. I usually go on Fall 10 day trips and like to catch a variety of fish (still looking to land my first Wahoo). I am even thinking about doing a 15 day trip, If I can convince my wife to let me spend the $$$$. Please give me your comments and thoughts on the different boats.
