I would steer clear off a smoker if you plan on fishing bigger water, they flat out won't hold up. Or else you'll find yourself replacing rivets!

I disagree, I have a 20' Sylvan and it'll handle any water I have the balls to tackle. You can beat any boat to death in rough water including glass and welded boats. It's the nut behind the wheel that destroys more boats that poor manufacturing. The Smokers hull is .120, Compared to other major names with .080 or .100. If your looking at smashing your kidneys then buy the best warrantee, if you want a great boat with a great price tag, then the Smoker might be your ticket...

I have a Legend, made by Smokercraft and have no complaints. The hull holds up great. I use it in Lake Ontario and Lake Erie . Handles 3 foot waves with ease. The hull on mine is .100. The hull design gives great top end speed as well. Turning quickly at over 40mph can be a challenge, but the only reason to make a quick turn here is to avoid jet skiers. And well....they're only jet skiers.

You flat out cannot pound the snot out of a welded or rivited tin boat and expect it not to leak. period. Smoker/phazer etc sell a ton of boats and they all do not fall apart.

I have to respectfully disagree. I am on my third Smokercraft - updating from small to larger models. My boat is seldom used in rough water although I have a teenager whose friends used it daily the last 2 summers for wakeboarding.

My boats have held up, not leaked and performed as promised. I am satisfied with both the interior & exterior fit and finish. I have always got a good trade in because I took good care of them.

Default I want some of what they're smoking

These couple of Smokercraft haters must of been the very few to get a lemon. I am on my second Smokercraft and my 182 Ultima can handle the 3 to 5 footers we get in the river here. I have ran that boat at nearly 40 MPH in 3 footers and it's still in one peace, my kidneys paid dearly but the boat is fine.

Lunds or Genmars are not 20% to 30% better then Brunswicks but they are priced that way.

Catch a big one this fall
Keep releasing them all

I have a smoker and love it. It has a thicker hull than the same size Lund and it was less expensive with more bells and whistles.

Bob, I know Sylvain is owned by Smoker but what is your source on Monark and Starcraft? I know Monark is made by Starcraft but Starcraft is a much older company than Smoker.
