In one word, what made you choose your boat.......

As the title says really.....

In one word, what made you choose your boat over all the rest you saw, well, OK then it may take more than one word...!!!

Boat choice

Creature comforts and mechanical dependability.

The queen bed is nice too.

One word? Is this the humor column? Small enough to maintain myself, cheap enough to operate on my budget, small enough to single hand, sturdy enough to take what the weather dishes out, comfortable enough to stay on for extended periods of time. Is that one word? Just checkin' :-)

Flexible

It needed to meet modest cruising and serious fishing requirements for the SF Bay and CA Delta. I needed a boat to support the two of us on local cruises and fishing trips for up to 4 guys with the ability to walk completely around the boat with fishing rod in hand. So far, so good!!
