Aloha, Hi everyone, first post on BD, so ALOHA to everyone! I am thinking about buying a striper 1851 "18.5"" center console striper.... My question is will this boat be ok to fish out deep and hit any rough water? I primarily am looking for a boat to hit some buoys, troll and drag some opelu... But want to make sure the striper 1851 can handle being out in hawaiian waters... I am a captain and have run boats in Hawaiian waters for 8 years.... just not this small, mostly a 31 bertram.... Any insight? Mahalos and tight lines!
