Boat Reviews By Owners

2002 -- 19' 8" CAROLINASKIFF

Model: 198V

Cockpit: THIS BOAT HAS AN 8 FT. BEAM AND HIGH SIDES. IT'S A CENTER CONSOLE WITH EXCELLENT HELM VISIBILITY AND GOOD STORAGE UP FRONT. WITH A 6-8 INCH DRAFT IT IS A FISHING MACHINE!

Cabin: THIS IS AN OPEN BOAT WITH LOTS OF ROOM FOR FISHING AND GOOD SEATING. I WISH IT HAD ROD STORAGE...IM STILL WORKING ON THIS PROBLEM. THE RIDE CAN BE A LITTLE DAMP IF YOU TRIM IT FULLY IN A CHOP.

Construction: WELL BUILT AND TOUGH AS LEATHER! THIS BOAT WAS BUILT TO LAST!.

Handling: I HAVE USED THIS BOAT ON FRESH WATER ONLY...LARGE INLAND LAKES AND RIVERS. IT HANDLES WELL IN FAVORABLE AND NASTY WEATHER. IT IS SURPRISINGLY AGILE WHEN ON PLANE. I SUSPECT IT WILL HANDLE SALT WATER QUITE WELL.

Engine Room: THE BOAT IS RATED FOR 130 HP...I SELECTED A HONDA 115 HP FOUR STROKE AND IT RUNS LIKE A SWISS WATCH. EXCELLENT POWER! LOW NOISE..DEPENDABLE!!!! IT WORKS FOR PEANUTS (LOW FUEL CONSUMPTION) AND RUNS LIKE A CHAMP. THE ENGINE IS HEAVIER THAN ITS 2 STROKE COUNTER-PARTS BUT BEATS THEM SILLY WITH OVERALL PERFORMANCE. I LOVE IT!

General Comments: I FISH OVER 200 DAYS A YEAR...I ALSO USE THIS BOAT TO HUNT WATERFOWL AND ACCESS ISLAND HUNTING REFUGES FOR BIG GAME. IT IS THE PERFECT BOAT FOR OVERALL UTILITY...FISHING, HUNTING AND HAULING STUFF AROUND...THIS IS THE PERFECT GENERALIST BOAT.
