We've been shopping to upgrade the Excel, and the boss and I both like the SeaArk Bay Extreme 220. This will be a primarily deep water boat, but I'd like to take it to FL once in a while to chase some reds. I feel like a good ride will be a little more important than running shallower. Here's the question. 14* V bottom, or 7* tunnel hull? With the right jack plate on the 14* , will I be shallow enough? Will the tunnel hull ride good in rough water? Also, we are considering a Suzuki 175 or 200 instead of a Yamaha. Any thoughts on that plan? Thanks in advance men!
