The Starweld line seems to have a more narrow hull than current competing boats- typically they run around a 92 inch beam in the 19 ft range whereas other makers are running beams in the 99 inch range. This makes the Starwelds a bit more sensitive to offset loads. I run a Starcraft SF-176 which has the older narrow hull which I prefer since I usually run only alone or with 1 passenger. I can suggest you take a look at the Starcraft Fishmaster line which comes in 19 and 21 ft and has a 99 inch width. Iíve owned 4 Starcrafts over the past 40 years and had no issues with any of them. In fact, I see my 1981 16 footer now and then which is on itís 3rd owner with no leaks, cracks, etc running on Lake Erie. Starcraft pricing is pretty decent too.
