Lots of good boats out there . I had a Majek 21 RFL for 10 years which was truly a great flats boat . After developing a soft spot behind the leaning post and getting it repaired , I opted for the 24' Tran Cat SVT . Frankly, I'm astonished ! I fish the Port O'Connor area and have a place out on the Matagorda peninsula so I needed a boat that could handle the rough chop of an angry Matagorda bay . This boat busts chop w/ the best of them and corners like it's on rails . What blew me away though is it's shallow water performance . It handles the back lakes of Pringle & contee at low tide w/ ease running everywhere I would dare to go in my 21 RFL . I hear pretty much the same from other cat owners from other builders . It's not gonna light your hair on fire like a Majek Extreme, Tran XLR8 or other V bottom Center Cons but it will top out at about 53 mph w/ an 17 pitch cupped prop . I would definitely look into a cat from the likes of Tran, El Pescador, Haynie, etc. etc.
