I had a Malibu Xfactor and sold it some time ago! :banginghe:banginghe:banginghe I really liked fishing out of that boat. I have since sold my flats boat too and I started duck hunting out of my BIL's sit in kayak this winter. Well, I've really had the bug to have a SOT again so I've been shopping but with a really tight budget.

I found a older Perception Prism on the Clist and made the guy an offer. For just $350 I got a pristine 14' boat, rudder system, 2 rod holders, paddle, seat, built in bait well, foam transport blocks and an itch to get in the water :cheers:

I think I did pretty well ... gonna take it to Destin tomorrow and try to get some fishing in the next couple of days. Reviews of it were pretty much raves from everyone who's ever owned one.

Hope i don't sink it :rofl:

That is gonna make an awesome open water boat. Looks like you did good on a budget.

Well... on difference from my past SOT ... definite backside wetter. The water was warm and pleasant though so it wasn't an issue. The rudder was nice and I drift fished off the jetties in Destin this morning. Caught 6 fish, reds ... spot and of course a couple of cats. Not a bad first trip. Thanks for all the comments guys! Who wants to head down and take a trip down the Wacissa this summer???
