    Tuff call there! Both boats are well built. Either one will be good!:)

    I wouldn't be concerned about the fuel capacity difference. The wellcraft is going to give you better fuel economy and over 200 miles range. That's further than you will ever want to go in a 21' CC.

    Be patient and whatever you do.....don't buy anything without out a sea trial. You may not like either may love both, but you gotta drive 'em first.

    1. Find one thats 2-3 years old, loaded with electronics and a bait tank and probably still spend less money. You might find one other stuff too, like a windlass, a cover, a stereo, outriggers, etc. This stuff costs thousands to buy and thousands to have installed professionally.

    2. Buy it from a private party who is not trying to make a living selling it.

    3. Be patient and be prepared to walk away if you don't get the deal you want. Its a buyers market and will get even more so in the next year.

    Look hard at the above Parker. You wouldn't lose on that one.

    This is great advice keep it comming! , one thing i need to mention is i have a wife , 2 girls and a boy , kids are 7 10 12 , the center console doubles as a potty / shitter . we will take it to the lake for tubing with then kids just as often as the islands or kelp.

    Thanks steven

    I don't know many guys that use that center console as a head. Climbing down inside there in a swell....I'll pass.

    If you have a family, strongly consider a cuddy cabin. Gives the wife a place to change, get out of the weather, store stuff, use the head, take a nap, :Lets_do_i, whatever. :D They generally ride much drier too.

    Buy a 21'-23' WA forget the cc if you want the family on the boat more then once, course maybe that's not so bad either.

    We looked at a few cuddy cabins and they were nice but in the 21" range they were just to small for all of us. and to get the one that would of been big enough was just to big to take to the lakes. my negibor has a 26' Livesay that i could get for 25k and that is a fishin Boat !! but taking it to the Lakes for tubing would be rough but for the 100 mile jaunt for tuna it would of been perfect!! but i mad the dission to keep the family :) and from what i here there are some people in here that take these boats out 60 miles all thoe not for me at this point:nopity: For the :_portable i think it will work well for the lakes , good point about swells !

    Whatever you get, you are going to have to compromise something. No such thing as the perfect lake boat/ saltwater boat/tubing boat/ fishing boat/ family boat. Just have to start with the greatest need and go from there.
