Fever Mike, your the main reason why Im looking at a Concept, I thought they were just painted up nice, but rigging and the rest of the boat looks sweet. This boat will be used to mostly take clients out, and fish every now and then. My biggest concern that I have seen on quite a few of these boats is the walk around deck that you walk or fish on, alot of them seem somewhat flimsy, especially when you walk on the compartment doors, that are for storage or bait wells, am I out of line here, or is that the way it is. Thanks

DamDonzi, thanks for the info on the Marlargo, also looks like a great boat.

Dreamer, I will check the Ocean Hawk out.

Thanks Guys, Jeff

I've always loved intrepids, but never had the patients. My neighbor gets a new one every 3 or 4 years. Top quality. Yellowfin, edgewater, pursuit, grady, proline, regulator, century are all great. I currently have a 28 century as an inshore fish/family boat. Whalers are also top but dont think they have any in the upper 30' range. Spend some time at the shows comparing models. Some have seats in front of the helm, some have coolers under the seats, ect. Livewell setup and tackle storage are important. It all come down to which one you feel comfortable with. some are faster then others, some can go farther.

Truth be told, you need to decide whether its a cruiser or a fishboat. Lots of good name being tossed around here, some over rated boats here also. But, it's your call as to what your doing with the boat..

Cruiser/occasional fishing trips:

Cruiser/semi serious fishboat:
Midnight Express

Serious fishboat:
Pro Line
Sea Vee

No particular orderr to the manufacturers here. Just my choices.

I own a 25 Whitewater myself.. Rock solid, no frills, pure fish catching machine..

Good friend of mine has a Marlago that he keeps at his house in the keys. From what he says they're great boats and very nice quality. He is an old Cig. owner so I know he doesn't like to skimp on either quality or performance. He owns this boat as well as a 60ft+ yacht. I believe his is from Marina Mar in Ft. Lauderdale.

You guys are forgetting my Hyperfishing box, fighting chair and side rails for the engine hatch on Sonic 30/31s!

Converts the Sonic into a great fishing.crusiing platform, and 15 mins later, you'd never know the products were on there!

Pictures tell the tale on my website. Four years and counting, my boat has cruised/fished/poker runned the northeast and Florida.

Fever Mike, I was not talking about Concept, just some of the other boats that I was on.

Ryan, I did check out Yello Fin, awesome boat, attention to detail was a 10, but a hard core serious fish boat. We are still looking at them also. Thanks Jeff

I saw RadioActive being built from start to finish - it was obvious you are particular in what you want.
Definitely take a look at the Manta and Carrera boats before making up your mind- they are serious custom boats, one at a time. The extra beam and freeboard over the Concept may make the difference for you. They still have great performance looks and speed along with a very succesful racing history in their hulls.

If I could get Pat to make a CC cockpit liner for his 33AVH, he'd sell a can guess what his answer was to that.

I personaly think Jupiter makes a very nice custom,serious Fishing boat. As far as performance (sport boat like) CC's Concept has got that nailed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
At present their is not a single company making performance CC that are as individual and custom as Concept.

Please name a single company who currently builds performance CC that are:

Built and delivered on time for what you were Quoted ?

As custom as you what ? (Wicked II)

As wired and rigged like a race boat ?

Have Painted graphics ?

Backed by Lifetime hull warranty?

Supported by Great customer service ?

Jafo, I will also check out Manta, they seem to be very nice. You are right, if Pat would do his fish series again I would be right there. Radio Active was a great rough water riding boat, and if he would have started his 42, and at the time, I probably would not have looked any farther. But...The Nortech is truly a step up, very happy, and I actually am leaving right after this post to go to Missouri to Ratical Graphics to bring her home.

Rocco, its sounds like you are a satisfied customer, like all of Concept owners have been, I should be recieving my packet this weekend, I will definatly check it out.

Thanks Jeff
