   Duh! from Dewayne_CA (  8/18/2006 2:17:00 PM
 The one I own. :)

The best is the one that fits your needs the best.

For me I like the Ranger 520. It is a very stable platform.

   Stable ? from Mike I.  8/18/2006 4:43:00 PM
 Ditto on the 520

   I agree with Dewayne from Socb_Hawghunter (  8/18/2006 5:55:00 PM
 "The one I own" BASS CAT. I have the Classic but a PUMA would be THE boat for me.

Now here comes the Walker Texas Rangers out to lynch me.... too bad that cant catch me in my kitty...YEE HAWW.

PS can you tell I am going fishin on the delta this weekend :)

   Fastcat most stable from Spookchucker (  8/18/2006 7:57:00 PM
 A Fastcat is the most stable. It's 102" wide and a catamaran type hull. No V-bottom is even close on fishing stability.

Best fishibility is very subjective and differs for each fisherman and the type of water he fishes. The same boat the is great for flipping in small shallow creeks will drown you in rought water on big lakes. Boats for big water can't get into a lot of the flipping areas.

So everyone's preference is a compromise of sorts for the features most important to their own fishability interpretations.

 MoDaddy...You want to be the one in your area setting the new standards in platforms and stability...Look at webby's site and look at the X2 by Triton!!! There is 88" of carpeted floor in fornt of the consoles and 68 1/2" at the front seat pedestal...No one else can claim those numbers as of yet...Its loaded to the onions and is a serious tournament platform. For all you doubters and misleds this boat is 3 THREE 3 miles per hour (spelled out) lmao 3 mph slower that the standard X series because of the change in the hull, cap, and weight 2000lbs for those who are counting calories. This is the new man on the block. Its where the others were aiming and didn't quite hit the 10 ring "gettin hooked up!!!" Call john "webby" and let him hook you up like I am This is an awesome boat....Mike

   Compromise from bcb (  8/20/2006 10:03:00 AM
 Everything in a boat is a compromise. Thus obviously a catamaran hull would be a very stable platform. Though there are also many drawbacks to this type of hull for bass anglers across the USA. Then there are great riding narrow or belly vee hulls, which also have great drawbacks for anglers across the USA.

This ages old question here is about what fits you and your style of fishing where you fish. AND other areas you may fish.
