I am a bit biased, but the 24' Eaglecraft Talon is an awesome platform. It's not the best at everything, but it does everything with confidence. The earlier Eaglecraft crew boats had a pretty flat bottom, and while fast, would pound in the lump. The Talon eats waves, but you need to be on the trim tabs at all times. We fish five guys at Brown's Bay Chum Derby and two or three on the West Coast. My Dad and Mom circumnavigated Vancouver Island twice on the boat. You have to pay to play, but once set up, it is economical and requires normal maintenance. Not sure if the file attached, not my boat and no longer for sale I think, but gives an idea.
