    That's a nice looking rig. I'd like to find one like it. Don't seem to be many in my part of the world. I'll keep looking.

    IMHO, you need the seat regardless of hp.
    Listen to your gut over all the other voices.

    Buy once, cry once and now you’re set to enjoy the ride. Squandering the kid’s inheritance? LOL

    I’ll have to give that a try, my PF16 torques pretty hard. My next boat (if there is one) will be a hydraulic stick steer, maybe with the wheel. I’ve got a bum left shoulder, it almost meant finding a different boat. But I pulled the livewell out (other reasons) and that allowed me to move the drivers seat back about 4 inches. That made all the difference in the world for my shoulder, not to mention some much appreciated extra legroom.

    Mine is a Tracker, I really like the layout better than anything else I’ve seen. And I don’t get the rough ride that many talk about. Of course I fish mainly small water or rivers and creeks and don’t make long runs in rough water.

    How difficult was it to remone your livewell?
    What year is your PF16?
    I never really use the live well in mine and the extra room would be nice.
