Way over there on the east coast the sport guys use a different style of vessel for the most part compared to us west coast guys. We like big bait tanks, range and beam. Less center console more cabin for the most part. I keep seeing these "Cigarette" style fishing boats and I like them like the Donzi, Formula, Yellowfin, Contender, Fountain etc. Some of these rigs are over 30' and only carry a beam of 8'4" max which minimizes many of the creature comforts that are associated with vessels of this LOA. I have been contemplating trying out one of these sleds. I am considering a Fountain of Reggie Fountain era. This guy was half flim flam man and half Elvis impersonator in my view who pretty much squandered the company money on offshore racing but built some "beaked" long narrow beamed fishing boats. How do you guys think something like this would fare out here in our neck of the woods?
