I spent three days in the sound Nov. 13-15 and we had awesome water weather. Never saw a deer but had a great trip. The point of the thread is to brag on my boat and the way it is set up. I love it all, 22' Weldcraft Ocean king has excellent storage, 2 of us slept on the boat, plenty of room for gear. Yamaha 150, Yamaha 8 kicker, Yamaha 8 2 stroke for Alaska series seward 8' 10" raft (scary fast with one guy). Its pretty easy to tow 3/4 ton Chevy, launched with rear chains, pretty effecient on fuel roughly 3.4 to 3.6 MPG @ 30MPH. I like that I can pull up to the beach and generally get on and off with knee high rubber boots. Big buddy heater w/ 5 LB bottle, and 6V from cig. lighter connection is plenty to keep it warm (a little moist) but acceptable. The boat handles all the water I want to be in, everybody would like a bigger boat when on the water. She has excellent fish holds, wash down pump, dual batt., dual bilges, halibut hold pump, Scotty elec. downriggers, Ace Line hauler. I can't figure why Dewey's didn't move more of these when price was right there with the Hewes Ocean Pro. The finish work in and out on this boat is very nice and the substructure is far superior to the hewes in my opinion. I have owned a Duckworth, Grayling, and lots of smaller boats, but this is the best set up piece of equipment I have owned. We did score a wolverine on the trip.
