[QUOTE=FlyWright;300296]... Hey, let's face it...we could all choose to nitpick every other boat if so inclined, but that takes the fun out of every boat encounter. I prefer to celebrate our differences and make the most of the blessings I have.

So true. ... My Coot would not be a sensible choice for fisherman Al. (Perhaps this version would be more suitable: http://www.dieselducks.com/Coot.html) While the Seahorse Marine version of the Coot has stainless-steel rails, the stern deck isn't big enough to hold chairs or table. The Coot's deck-level seat orients the person in the wrong direction. Also, the Coot's optional sail rig has stays interfering with the use of fishing rods. This isn't a negative for me since I "fish" at the supermarket.
