Trailcraft 6800 Sportscab or Oceanic 6.8 Hard Top

Howdy Folks

Does anyone within this group own either of these boats?

Caravan has sold and we have narrowed down the plans to either of those two though wish to have first hand owners feedback.

Yes, i know the Trailcraft have a low deadrise and are light boats though I have had a tinny and the 6m pacemaker centre console is light and needs to be treated like a tinny ie dont go out if the weather is shit as we will get wet and I will be the first to spew.

Ultimately, we are looking at something to camp on/in and do some island hopping.

 Hey Swompa

Re Oceanic 6.8 Cuddy Cab

I have operated one for about 6 years off the south west corner.  If you are after feedback I have PM,d my phone number.  I have driven three other Oceanic of different sizes in the same waters those being 8.2  6.2 and 5.8  The variations in ride and performance -  all have varying attributes and issues.

 Aren't most either Jackman or Plug?

According to the inter webs, Seaquest went into liquidation and somehow Razorline is involved? I believe they are a Plug design which is the same as Oceanic.
