    In my opinion, all the LONG RANGE boats are good! It seems that some get mentioned more on this and other sites because of the people who ride them, or are the charter-masters on them, or have some other connection with the boat. That's fine with me. Everyone has a favorite boat they like to ride and fish on. It is kind of like going to your favorite watering hole. After a few trips, you learn the boat routine, and the crew recognizes you from past trips. Some like to try all the different boats each time they go, but they usually settle on a favorite.
    Myself, I like the QUALIFIER 105. I have fished it for MANY years, and I am happy with it. But they are all good.

    Great boat , great crew , great food , and Jeff works super hard to put you on fish. Seems to make all the right calls. Very spacious and a very comfortable ride . Try it you won't be sorry

    You can't go wrong on any of the long range boats. The Independence is my favorite. Comfortable ride, I don't think there is a bad cabin. As with all the long range fleet the food is excellent (bring loose fitting pants, they will be tight by the time you get home). The captain and crew are excellent and will put you on the fish.

    I have fished the INDY since 2005, I have not had a problem with the captain or crew yet. They are top notch all the way. The boat is second to none...Paul

    The last 10 day trip that I took was on the Indy. Jeff was the skipper and Paul was on the boat as well. They are true professionals. Jeff did his absolute best to put us on the fish. Paul introduced himself to everyone and helped out everywhere. The food was topnotch. I have been on 6 different long range boats with different opinions in regards to the boat itself, ride, layout, ect. They are all very good. But the Indy was really special. The only better ride is the Q105.

    Like they say all the boats and crew are good. If you have the chance take a trip on Indy , you will not regret it. I really like Intrepid too.

    I had a totally different experience than everyone else in this thread.

    I loved the boat, not the crew. There was only one crew member on the trip that I went on that was extraordinary in my opinion.

    I also didn't get a warm feeling from the other passengers either. I filled the last spot of a charter that didn't fill the boat on their own so they all knew each other and were generally not very friendly towards others!

    I have been going on the RP ever since and will continue to because I think their crews are the most personable and skilled that I have had the pleasure to fish with.

    In case you're still looking for input, count this as a vote for the Indy. Had a great time on a 10-day. Great boat, outstanding crew, excellent food. Try it, you'll like it.

    Looks like a classic Trip Advisor 4.75 Star. Whenever I find a restaurant on Trip Advisor with 14 good reviews and 1 person who had not-so-good experience, I tag the place as a real winner and look forward to spending my money there.

    There is no perfect operation. The Indy is apparently a VERY good one.

    +1 for the Indy. I have ridden other LR boats and will never stray from the Independence again. They set the baseline. True focus on Customer Service, talk to them at the Fred Hall Shows, ask them questions, food and accomodations are great. Boat you want to be on in rough weather. I ride this boat at least once a year and will do so from now on.

    Cmy six, The indy on that trip will most likely fish Clarion, not HB, but fishing November at clarion should be real good for (4) day's with quality yft. Don't plan on alot of wahoo...Paul
