    Good looking boat. Still a little steep in price for me, so I'm still tossing around the idea of building my own using Glacier Boats plans. Same size, though, 28' with 8'6" overall width.

    Nice boat, I wish the back deck was a tad bigger. Too pretty for me though. I like my boats like a work truck. They get dirty.
    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Cool looks, but I'm with AKBoater, needs to get dirty. Where do you keep the fish?

    I'm curious why you want to stay at 8'6". You lose a LOT of stability there.

    The boat looks like it is made from fiberglass so all the boats will be 8' 6" wide.

    That stays under the oversize towing limit, which both saves some $, and keeps one from being blacked out on popular long weekends.

    I am with Homertime. A 28 footer will lack some stability. The oversize towing restrictions are really no big deal. Sure there are some black out dates. Leave a day early and a day later. That is what vacation days are for. If you are worried about the cost of the permit, you probably should not be paying on a $170k-200k boat. Nice looking boats. I wonder if it comes with a captain's outfit.

    LOL! That was a good one. Lot of money for that size boat.

    It's a semi-displacement hull, not a planing hull, so I'm not sure how much effect the narrower width will have. It's a really deep hull, so maybe that will offset the narrowness a bit? Looks like a heavy bugger, though. Better own a big diesel truck to tow it with.

    Nice boat, but until I retire and have more time to get to and from where I'm going, it'll have to wait. Saw monthly payments displayed for lots of boats at the Seattle boat show. Some didn't look too bad until you saw that it was financed over 240 months (20 years!).
