I bought a 2120 used (2002 kept garages) and love it. For me, the split
transom has been an unexpected plus for fishing 'cause it is so easy to get a
rod around. We often fish the "rips" in the race near little gull island in
long island sound, and have drifted thouugh a ten foot rip line with no
problems other than our own fear of any waves that look so big. We do put the
engiine on when we must drift through the rip ( usually because we have fish
on) so we can power out if needed. Once or twice it was nice to have the v
stern to get rid of any water that splashed in fast, but the stern has never
been anything but a help. I'd love the added storage of a solid stern, but I'm
quite happy with what we have and do think it is safer if you find yourself in
really big waves as we do.

notched transom. It is not an issue for me at
all. I am mostly in bays and rivers, and occasionally out of Manasquan Inlet
on good days. Never any water. I suppose the closed transom and engine
bracket would have been nice, but not for our budget. I actually think that
if a wave were big enough to come over the transom it would come over a
closed transom as well, and I would rather be able to have the boat drain
quicker by powering it forward. Hope I don't get to test that though!
