I will soon be in the market for my first drift boat and I like what I have seen from these two companies. I have heard good things about both companies, but have heard that they handle a bit differently. As for the types of waters that I will be on; Upper Midwest Great Lakes tribs, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Idaho and possibly Oregon and Washington. I do plan on trailering the boat to various locales and it will be used quite a bit. Any input that you folks may have with regards to durability, handling, service, etc. would be greatly appreciated. As a side, I have also looked at Outcast's PAC 1400 I believe it is. In the end, I want a traditional style boat. Eventually, depending on where I settle down, I'd love to get a Montana Boatworks boat.
