been on a striper wa 23 to the FADS. not a bad boat, maybe a tad cheap in the finish but apart from that OK.

 i dont have any experience with either boat but ive noticed a lot of stripers for sale and i wonder why, they look sensational, could probably do with twin donks but thats just my opinion. would love to be in your position
