My parents are interested in a small CC fishing boat to take to the local lakes and gulf bays. These seem like a decent little boat. How's the quality? From what little I've read on THT they seem to have good reviews for a small boat.

My parents have a Scout 220 CC "bay boat" in Fla. They love it. He also has a Maverick "skinny water" flats boat. And a Boston Whaler they use on the Lake in Vermont. He is very "picky" about build quality, especially on his boats. I have never heard him complain about anything with that boat. Only complaints have been about incompetant work being done on his Yamaha OB.
