Getting ready to purchase my 1st Egret (189 or 2011)
I've owned an Andros Guide 20 and it was great in skinny water, but they should have sold it with a raincoat for crossing the bay cuz it would soak you and the ocean was never calm enough to take it off shore to even the closest reef...That's why I like the Egret because it's made to handle chop and keep you dry. The plan is to fish sweatwater lakes, the backcountry/creeks and off the beaches and on nice days run out to the closest reefs near off shore.
I plan to buy resale, so my first question is what year did the current owner take over? I've read that he's turned the company around for the better and would like to buy one of his boats.
