Thanks, the Sea Fox may be off my list at this point, but still looking. If I am understanding you the major difference between the two is the draft, the V would ride lower in the water.

I have a deep v CC with bow rails. I have my trolling motor mounted on bow and I can slide it out and get it back in without to much trouble. My minn kota is a 62 inch shaft. But I saw an article in a magazine that you can cut the bow rail in the desired spot and insert a sleeve that will go over or through the rail, can't remember and you drill a hole on each side and install pins that you can remove easily. Was thinking of doing it with mine. Hope this helps.

I am with Plan B. They catch the wind a little more as well. Plus they tend to not have as much walking room. I just feel more closed in with the deeper v. Everyone has different desires, I guess that is why there are so many to choose from in the boat business.

My Scout is a deep V with a low railing. Had shop make custom mount for me for bow. See pic. Biggest downside was not pre-wired. Like a bay boat should be. Pro is I've had many a day on Lanier where I was glad to be coming home in a very comfortable boat in rough water. And high freeboard good for kids. A bay boat is probably the better fishing choice if you accept the limits on bad weather/bad water.

And this boat has been 11 mi out in the Atlantic. Not often but cool to know you can.
