    Wow, that looks nice. I don't see it on the BW website yet.

    I gotta try to make it out there this week.

    Just announced yesterday I believe.

    Only 12 RS1's being produced this year

    I think it's a good mix of a few boats.

    Offshore/inshore, bay, freshwater

    I'm so tempted to pull the trigger

    T-top would really make it a show stopper IMO

    The BW T-top would push the price up another 10K. None of them are cheap though, I told my wife to get ready ;).

    I have a housefull of boys that don't get to fish enough. I gotta make that right!

    It's already got the electronics and trim tabs. It's offshore ready to be honest.

    With the 300hp I saw a chart @3000rpm 305miles per tank. 80gal cap. Cost 150ish to fill up :)

    For sum reason my pix files are too big to upload now :confused:

    Has anyone seen the New Cape Horn 22. She is a pure knockout!

    The other boats now are more 'family boats' what I call bow riders with fancy lights, seating and clear lit up live wells... Really!! Fancy this fancy that.. Why make a fishing boat for a beauty pageant is my point I guess.

    Well that's not me!

    Hardcore fishing diving boat is what I want. No family here! No purty lights or fancy drink holders for me.

    The only boat that has the (race car feel) is Cape Horn. She is perfect for what I like to do... Fishing!

    Guys if your in the market for a real fishing boat look at Cape Horns.

    A-19 rigs may be in trouble soon :)

    Can't see it but Cape Horn has a tuna/dive door that opens to the transom. Awesome for spearfishing/ diving.

    Super straight forward boat. I like that it's easy to service the pumps and console. Has a head, 5'10" under counsole. Head is key for me. Lots of storage, no fancy cup holders that light up. Just a fishing machine that needs blood it in.

    Only 1 in Texas. If I don't make a deal or someone grabs it..

    I have to wait 14months for another one. :eek::(
