My .02 Conquest makes a fantastic deckboat. I would look at them seriously. Advantage was the first to make the deckboat. I have only been on a few of the deckboats but I have owned another model advantage and my father has own three. Thier product and customer service is fantastic. I used to have a 22' Advantage with a big cube blower motor in it that I was trying to get a few more MPH out of. I stopped by the shop in Havasu and a couple of the main guys stopped what they were doing and came out and BS'd with me for 1/2 an hour about some ideas that I had. Great people.
