I was wondering if anyway bought the new X22B Xpress bay series boat. I am thinking about buying one. I got a ride in one from the dealer , but the only thing I see is the boat sits low to the water. I am woried about crossing rough bays and getting wet (and fishing in a chop).It only had a few gallons of gas , but holds 40 gallons. If anyone has any experience with the X22B model. I would appeciate some advise.

I am buying a X22B from G&F in Raceland,LA.I would call Eric (owner) and ask for a test ride. I drove it and runs great with the 150 HP 4 stroke Yamaha (52-55 mph on GPS). I think he has a tan with dark green sides in his shop. His boats are coming in every 2 weeks (depending on color you want). Of course if you order a special that could be the problem on delivery. The X22B comes loaded with eveything. AS far as the chop, they are right, a fiberglass boat is the way, but for the price , you can't beat it. I shopped, and that is the best deal. He also has Blazer Bay, but the $$$ comes back into play and I didn't want to spend that much right now.

No Limit,
I just said I sold my boat (and may had mislead you). I had a 20ft Delta Marsh I sold. I did post a HD18CC Xpress for my friend, which he didn't sell yet and is dropping the price.
Sorry for the confusion.

NO LIMIT,Yes , my boat is sold.
Xpressboat 908, I am purchasing from G&F in Raceland.He has a handful with counter rotating engines at that price (which I think are all sold, not sure). Yamaha must of had a overrun of 115hp and 150 hp 4 stroke counter rotaing engines and started making deals with xpress to package and move them. As far as I am concerned, the prop can spin left or right. the price is right. I will just need to order a spare left hand prop when needed. Also, I heard he is cutting some good deals on the HD20CC with 115HP 4 stroke Yamaha..if anyone interested.

Hey thanks folks. I really appreciate the advise. As far as the price goes. I can get the whole rig for $24,000 (2008 MODEL WITH 150 4 stroke Yamaha , tandem axle alum trailer). I priced different bay boats and they were all over $32,000 with standard features (shopping for 21ft and 22ft range, I really didn't want anything smaller),
thanks again!

Thanks for the info. I checked and the X22B is only rated for a 150hp (stamped on the hull). They had a typo in there brochure. Also , with 2 people the boat topped out at 54-55 mph on the GPS (5800 rpm's) . So I was very happy with the power, just worried about the height. (the X22 has 22" sides, but again sits low to the water due to the vee in the boat). I am buying one. so I will post something in a few weeks after putting it to the test.
Thanks again for your advice.

A comment titled: Lake sport / Delta Marsh in response to a report titled: New Boat

I bought the 20ft Delta Marsh witha 140 HP suziki 4 stroke. I love it. It does have a rough ride in the chop, but great for marsh. The lake sport is 100 ga alum, the same company makes the delta marsh which is now 125 ga alum. Hope that helps. That's my input of course.

Try Bay Round for trout, picked a few school trout up last saturday. Also try airplane bay and bay cray (south of bay round) .
