Yes, I went with a 4x4 tundra.Whoops, didn't see you bought already. Hopefully you went tundra.
I had an 1801. Loved it. Would do catalina some, but not a lot. You feel it the next day. I killed the yellows and did some tuna trips. I now have a 228 Seafarer and for anyone that says there isn't a big difference is officially off their rocker. My new to me boat handles so much better they aren't in the same universe.
However, it is way more cleaning and more gas. One thing is for sure, boat values are retarded and if the stay this way get the 1801 and sell it for what you bought for in two years if you want more. That being said, you should get the truck that will tow a bigger boat so you're Rw doubling down twice. Plus, more truck is simply safer on the road and you can get a truck camper that is bigger on a bigger truck.
