JP yes, thanks for the clarification. Have you tried a small motor on it? I have a seven year old and I think he would love to help me build one.

Moonfish I think all of the boats there have their own specific uses and followings. On the whole, considering the years of production runs, they are all pretty equal to me. Any smart buyer will consider the individual boat and its intended use rather than the brand itself. (same thing you said basically) No brand wars here from me, just observations of the few boats I saw.
