Bill,

Thanks for responding. You are the perfect candidate to answer this
question, as I was also fishing with Kingfisher. If I recall
correctly, your boat started out at about 7,200lbs vs. 6,400 for the
2820. Not exactly apples to apples, but close enough.

Did you notice that the boats at Kingfisher road a bit rougher due to
the lighter weight? We were there at the end of May/beginning of June
and encountered some weather similar to what we frequently find in the
ocean up here.

Bill
