My buddy just got a 17 Bay Cat. Really nice boat with a lot of room on the bow to layout or put a couple of bean bags up there. Well made with good storage and super easy to get on & off the trailer. Cruised down the Intracoastal and she handled 1-2 foot wakes from other boats and wind chop with NO problem. Looking forward to doing some fishing and skiing in the weeks to come here to South Florida.
