Up to recently I used a Sportsman 180, but decided to sell it after being beaten up by 3 footers in PWS. I have just ordered a brand new Hewescaft Searunner 220 ET HT with a 150hp Yamaha, but after reading some of the previous threads I am getting a bit uncertain around my choice. Most of these threads concludes that the Ocean Pro is a better boat. My mine usage of the boat will be fishing and hunting out of Whittier, and potentially some trip out of Homer to pick up some Halibut. But, before changing my order to an OP and spending the additional $$ i am seeking some advice from you in the forum that has experience from both boat types.
