    Pilothouse vs Walkaround

    I think it depends on what you plan to use it for. If your going to the islands a pilot house is so much more comfortable. Especially one that opens up. You can spend a day or two and get by.

    Skipjack 20 Mod V vs. Deep V

    Deep v 1979 all were the same. You are going to get beat up crossing the channel with a 20 foot boat. If your 30 it is no big deal.

    Skipjack 20 Mod V vs. Deep V

    I had a 20 for years worked fine crossing the channel. It is a wet boat though and canvas with eisenglass windshield made a difference. At 20 feet you need to watch your days with the weather.

    Are fish counts accurate? My experience...

    Interesting post. I was on a Ventura sportboat last year and we whacked the seabass. The report that night showed only a couple caught on the boat that day. I called the landing and asked why and they said it keeps the smaller private boats away from chasing them all day.

    Risking passenger safety for yellowfin

    Interesting post and comments. May I suggest you call or visit him. Explain your side on what you think happened. If that holds no resolution than simply file a coast guard report for unsafe boat operation.

    Grady Marlin 30 versus World Cat 320EC?

    I would buy whatever one used that has low hours on it. Probably pay 1/2 or less on the dollar.
