You might be similar to my use. When I size a boat, the bow gunnel height is a huge factor because I pitch & flip a LOT.

Ranger 620 & 622, Vexus DVX22 & DVX19 & Lund 2075 Pro-V all have bow gunnels under around 9-10" so pitching & flipping works pretty well. The 16' Lund Impact has about a 15" bow gunnel-- can't really easily pitch/flip from that boat.

I've watched a plethora of other boats pics & vids & Yarcraft, Warrior + others look like they have really deep bows. 2 boats ago my bow gunnel was 16" or so making pitching/flipping a nightmare. I had to retrofit something to get me in the air with the downside of I was that much higher off the water doing it

I just recently faced a boat reality: There's no such thing as a "do-all boat". It's more like there are only "I make it work well for me boat" boats instead. Each model has its really big plusses, matched with its really big minuses.

That's my 2 cents

Happy fishing!!
