No doubt there are some uber fishy small boats...just like the big boats in crappy weather...don't enjoy the beating!
Crappy weather = beating on any boat. I don't like the tangle in the corner or not knowing everyone's name after a week.
Did you take a beating on one of the 90 foot long-range boats?

Been side by side with most of them at one time or another. Personally I like big boats, not concerned with typical loads...given the choice I will be ahead of the tank or in the bow jig stick or popper rod in hand. We all find what work for us, for you ultra-limited loads, for me a big boat, and can't justify the extra 1-2K for the privilege of the light load...just me.

It’s all good. Just keep fishing. A healthy long range fleet is in everyone’s best interest
