I was looking around too, off and on, about 6 months ago, and after reading a lot, on this board and elsewhere, and stopping by shops looking at Bucks and Outcast, among others, went with the steelheader. No question that Bucks and Outcasts make great boats, and guys that fish with them swear by them. I went with the steelheader, though, in part b/c they're built like tanks, and I know I'm going to be doing this for a good while, and hate more than anything else buying twice. Anyway, got the Osprey 10ft. A little more expensive, but I'd figure out exactly what each boat costs (make sure you know exactly what's included), then go compare for yourself.
