Does anyone know if there is a big difference in stability or even ride between the two? We have a 16ft Mod-V with a raised deck and looking for a second boat but there are slim pickin's here in Colorado to choose from.

I am wanting someting around 18ft with a 1 foot or so raised deck. At this size is it even something to think about?

Our Mod V has been awesome but there is just not allot of boats around here to pick from or at all. I am just wondering if it worth jumping on a flat bottom if I found one before a Mod V.

If your only using a troller or kicker motor with it a mod v will be fine. If you want a fan and the ability to shoot as shallow as possible then stick with the flat bottom.

I think it depends more on what type of water you are fishing. I had a SeaArk 1872 modV and kicked myself for not getting a flatbottom instead. We fish in a lot of shallow water and the keel dragged on everything.

I agree with the type of water argument if your beatin banks all night then you can't beat a modv now if your fishings flats and stuff a flatbottom is where it's at both have there pros and cons a mod v has the driving capabilty that a flatbottom only wished it did but a flat bottom the size your talkin about the "fishing"stabilty will be much better. I have found there is no right answer in this sport it's all personal preference

just repeating what everyone else has said i know but it just comes down to what the water you shot is

personally for me i cant imagine ever having another true flat bottom my semi will get pretty shallow and i will give up the few places i cant get for the handleing of the semi v on the lakes we sometime shoot

I've fished out of both and both have their advantages and disadvantages.Personally I wouldn't own nothing but a flat UNLESS I mainly fished around a bunch of big open rough water.

i like a flat bottom but thats my opinion. if you do alot of open lake running then a mod v will ride a lot better.
