    Default Knot Too Shabby is Gone. Now What????

    Yep, we came back from an amazing fishing trip and decided our days in the Hewes Alaskan 260 are over. It's time to move up into a cuddy type boat. We are looking for a 26-27' aluminum boat with a big fishing deck, cuddy, dinette, sink, stove and not worried too much about a head. We are fine with the porta potty so it gives us more room on the deck. We have been looking at the Hewes 26 Explorer, 26' Raider and the new Allied Dominator 26'. Of course wed love to find a nice 27' Wooly, but they are impossible to fine. Really leaning towards the Allied boat as it has pretty much everything we want.
    Does anyone have info on any of these options besides the Wooly? We already know a lot about them and they are our first choice but really like the options the rest have as well and they come up for sale much more frequently.

    I know you didn't list it as an option, but I love my 26' duck

    There's a 27' North River Offshore for sale at Alaska Frontier Fabrication. It's a pretty good price with twin 150's and electronics included. Three years of service are also included with the purchase. I looked at it, but it wouldn't fit in my shop so I had to pass.

    The Bayweld I saw at the boat show this year was the boat of the year in my mind. It was called "Jak Bite" I think it was 28. The interior finish was awesome. Big galley table and they had put bunks in it. The best berth I have ever seen in any kind of aluminum boat. Probably the best looking berth I've seen in any sport boat. Love the lines
    Of the hull they are making as well.

    I saw that Bayweld at the show. Amazing boat, but it's about $150k more than the boats mentioned.

    We have looked at that North River a couple times. It just does my have the interior layout that we are looking for.

    Yep she's sold. On her way to Kaktovik to be a Polar Bear viewing boat for Kaktovik tours. Pretty neat.

    Keith, there is too much fun to be had out in PWS for going back to the river scene. Maybe on day in a mini jet though........

    Man that's a pretty cool looking boat, but not really what we are looking for.

    I really like the looks of that Allied Dominator, looks like it would handle some weather. Are there any around that I guy can look at in person?

    Nice flush mount with steering & controls and a shrimp lines anchor locker at the base of it. Top of cabinet doubles as a fuel tank for heater.

    Rob this is a lot larger than what you are looking for, but have you looked at Norvelle boats?

    That's what I'm thinking Steve.
    That Norvelle sure is a nice boat. Yeah too big.

    If you want a larger deck and don't care about the head, the 240 Explorer gives you about a foot more deck space over the 260. The 260 with short cabin even more still.

    There is a 260 cruiser with short cabin recently listed on Craigslist--http://anchorage.craigslist.org/boa/5700307977.html. My personal tastes are for the explorer over the cruiser with the wider bottom and self-bailing, but the cruiser's are still great boats.

    2nd the Duckworth. We will likely part with our Explorer in the near future to go towards something with a full head for the misses and daughter--
