boats will be safer faster and store more

[20:02:09] ebijack (mi): would you go to a 22fter if ranger made a walleye
boat in 22foot?
[20:02:27] mikej: boy i don't think so
[20:02:39] mikej: i think 20 foot is enough
[20:02:48] Harry:   I would to get the extra space for guiding
[20:02:52] Bigfoot: easy big boy
[20:03:03] Wacky Walleye: ebijack the 620 is more than enough boat
[20:03:05] mikej: but maybe if you could put a 300 hp on it!!!
[20:03:35] Harry:   300HP SOUNDS GOOD!!!!
