    If your going to be in that little river boat ramp near the shop. Then you'll just be excited that you have a new boat, with the new boat smell and all the storage. Maybe it's a little more stable or faster than you're last one. But until you get in a good chop you won't get the big smile and say to yourself that "I made the right decision". Don't be afraid to push the throttle.

    Stand up, hold on and tell the guy to show you what it will do straight into a chop at 30 mph and then again at 40 mph. Let me know what you think.

    I've had mine for 16 years, and am still impressed every time I take it out.

    Well I tried it but didn't buy it. I have to say for a 18 foot flats boat it was impressive! I decided a bit bigger boat would better meet my needs. I may revisit the Egret later on. Seemed I had to play with the tabs more than I expected to keep the boat level. I believe if I could've brought it home and kept it a few weeks I could have gotten more comfortable with it but that wasn't an option!
