My Impact has a much better ride in heavy waves, tracks WAY better and even though this one is a walk-thru, blows around less. Do I wish the Impact was built slightly heavier...yes.
They all have pros and cons.
They make a navigator in 18 1/2 foot boat -- hmmm I bet not alot people have rode in that boat -
you have to compare apples to apples when your looking at boats -- I have had enough of them in my lifetime one foot or a foot and 4 inches makes a big difference on ride.
